About this talk

Feeling a bit like the cloud has suddenly become less of a nice-to-have and a suddenly critical element to your business continuity? You aren’t alone. In this session of Nutanix Connect we are calling on global experts and our guest presenter Professor Herman Singh to help get to the bottom of what your cloud strategy suddenly looks like. In this discussion, our global experts will touch on: • How did cloud get here and where is it heading to? • Why has this become important recently • What are the risks of not pivoting? • What should you consider in your plans? Topics that will be addressed include: 1. What the various architectures that enterprises can chose for their cloud strategy look like. 2. Is it all or nothing when approaching the cloud? 3. What is the safest cloud strategy for an enterprise today? Pose your own questions to the panel and gain insights into what the leaders of the pack are doing in this new world, as well as what you should stop, start or continue.
