Cloud masterclass: Successfully make the business case for cloud

Presented by

About this talk

While cloud adoption is mainstream, and accelerating, many organisations have struggled to gain the cost efficiencies and benefits they anticipated with their investments. Some businesses have moved quickly and migrated easier applications to the cloud, but when it comes to enterprise workload migration, most are failing to apply a much-needed quantitative or qualitative fact-based approach. According to Gartner, through 2020, 80% of organizations will overshoot their cloud IaaS budgets due to a lack of cost optimization approaches.* If you’re worried that your cloud spend is out of control, join our webinar. We look at how the leading cloud adopters have successfully met their cloud business case, and how they’ve kept their stakeholders on board along the way. Join our experts as they share their top tips on how to achieve a winning cloud business case. *Gartner, How to Identify Solutions for Managing Costs in Public Cloud IaaS, Brandon Medford, Craig Lowery, 19 August 2019
