Solve Strategy Series | Cloud – The Enabler of Innovation
As businesses seek to differentiate in a crowded marketplace, they’re looking to leverage techniques like DevOps and Cloud Native, and innovative technologies like AI, machine learning and analytics. But, to maximize the potential of these game-changing approaches, you need the cloud.
In this roundtable, our panel of tech leaders explores how Cloud is an enabler of innovation.
Topics covered include:
· Misconceptions about cloud native

Traditional approaches to data center security don’t translate well to the cloud. Those who are slow to realize this fact have all too often fallen prey to motivated malicious actors who, by comparison, have been quick to identify the opportunities that the changing technological landscape presents. Misconfigurations, which in a perimeter-secured environment may have represented nothing more than elevated risk, in the cloud can result in the accidental exposure of entire datasets.
Hyperscale cloud providers like AWS are acutely aware of the security risks their customers face and have provided the tools and approaches at a pace commensurate with the urgency of these challenges. In addition, they have assumed many of these responsibilities themselves with “as-a-service” offers that bolster “security of the cloud.” Nevertheless, “security in the cloud” may seem a daunting prospect for those unfamiliar with this paradigm, and may result in reluctance to transition or transform, which can also be damaging.
Join us as experts from Rackspace Technology and AWS discuss:
The continued evolution of cloud security threats
What the Shared Responsibility Model is and key considerations for implementation
How to take advantage of AWS native security services within your security strategy, including a high-level look at compliance
Join us for "Leveling Up IT Operations for the Cloud Evolution" and learn how a modern cloud support model can help companies evolve into an agile, outcome-focused organization.
Reserve your virtual seat for this live online event April 16 at 10:00 a.m. CDT. Speakers Taylor Bird, VP of Technology Strategy at Rackspace Technology, and Josh Prewitt, VP, Public Cloud Solutions at Rackspace Technology will discuss the shift in cloud operations, the differences between the traditional and modern operations world and how Rackspace Technology plans to challenge the way providers support organizations.

Guest speaker, Forrester’s Bill Martorelli busts cloud myths and more as he explores the future of cloud computing in this keynote presentation, covering:
• Deciding on which cloud technology you use is more of an ‘and’ conversation than an ‘or’ one.
• Whether they realize it or not (many don’t), most companies are already in a hybrid or multicloud environment.
• Private cloud supports many cutting-edge cloud technologies, including serverless and containers.
• Companies moving to the cloud must focus on the whole cloud. That means finding the right cloud for the right workload.
Following the keynote, Martorelli will be joined by an expert panel for a discussion on the topics raised and private cloud’s role in the future of cloud computing.

Companies are realizing the value of using ML models to drive better outcomes for their businesses. Harnessing the predictive power of their data with ML models to remain competitive is becoming more critical to business operations, yet 60% of ML models never make it to production. This is due to complications often exacerbated by outdated business processes and the fact that it's not a core competency for typical data science teams.
In this webinar, we will explore these specific challenges and illustrate how familiar cloud services can be stitched together with MLOps Foundations, enabling rapid development, training, scoring and deployment of models across multiple environments with strong governance and security controls to provide a foundation for successful model lifecycle management.
What we'll cover:
- Introduction to MLOps Foundations powered by Model Factory
- The gap between the Data Scientists and ML Operations
- The distinction between MLOps and DevOps
- Architecture patterns necessary for elements of effective MLOps
- How a “model factory” architecture holistically addresses CI/CD for ML
Demo that will explore:
- Quick feedback and traceability for model development
- ML framework agnostic tooling for packaging of models
- Platform agnostic continuous/rolling deployment

Security issues are becoming a day-to-day struggle for businesses. Recent trends, side effects of a global pandemic and Security statistics reveal a huge increase in hacked and breached data.
Data breaches exposed 36 billion records in the first half of 2020 and average cost of a data breach is $3.86 million as on 2020. It’s no longer “Can you afford to invest in security?” it’ is “Can you afford not to?”
At the same time, a proliferation of innovative new cloud technologies is expanding the perimeter that needs to be secured. While AWS provides a secure infrastructure platform and native security services, what you build on top of it must be secure as well.
Join us as experts from Rackspace discuss:
• The continued evolution of cloud security threats
• What the Shared Responsibility Model is as well as key considerations to implementing it
• How to take advantage of AWS native security services within your security strategy, including a high-level look at compliance

The impact of Covid-19 pandemic will be felt longer after the crisis has passed. Closures of offices for non-essential workers , ensuing work-from-home strategies have certainly been disruptive. Companies were forced to support remote employees with little notice and largely succeeded.
The pandemic has created the storm in terms of security risks for businesses. The volume of possible attacks surfaces has multiplied as a larger remote workforce means greater entry points for cyber criminals. We are also beginning to see the nature of the threat changing, as attackers exploit uncertainty, unprecedented situations, and rapid IT and organizational change.
Cybersecurity technology and service providers are shifting priorities to support current needs: business continuity, remote work, and planning for a transition to the next normal.
Join this Webinar by Rackspace Technology and Microsoft, where a panel of experts will discuss how you and your organization can mitigate these risks.
• How to Secure the newly implemented Remote Working?
• Ensure Business continuity of critical Security Functions.
• Optimization of your Cloud Security.
