Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Blue-sky thinking: The present and future of cloud computing

Join us for Blue-Sky Thinking, a new virtual discussion hosted by The Economist Events. Tech leaders will outline lessons learned from the covid 19 pandemic, including best practices and how to redesign businesses around cloud-based strategies.

Covid-19 has highlighted the need for corporations to be agile and quick to adapt to unexpected shocks. Although digitisation was well underway before the outbreak, covid-19 changed how companies use cloud-based platforms and services.

Digital technologies played a crucial role in keeping the lights on, enabling remote working, and ensuring companies met the needs of their communities.

As uncertainty continues about how long covid-19 will linger, organisations must continue to pursue resilience and agility. Decision-makers will have tough choices to make about resources, budgets and suitable governance frameworks. A close eye must be kept on business needs, costs and performance so technology investments deliver clear value. Cyber-security must stay high on the agenda, especially as hackers and savvy criminals get better at breaching firewalls and safeguards. The to-do list is long and daunting: where to start?

Our virtual event will ask:

What lessons have been learned from covid-19?
How do approaches differ based on company size, industry, and geography?
How do benefits compare to the costs across a business?
What are the organisational structures and talent needed to deliver value?
What are the key metrics for evaluating success?

Hear from our speakers:

Kenneth Cukier, Senior Editor and host of Babbage podcast, The Economist.
Chris Barker, Cloud and Platform Technology, Deutsche Bank.
Joe Kinsella, Vice-President, and Chief Technology Officer, CloudHealth by VMware.
Gleb Shaviner, Vice-president, Digital Product—Predix cloud and enterprise platform, GE Digital.

  • Using KPIs to Build Confidence in Cloud Security & Compliance Posture Recorded: Mar 24 2021 51 mins
    Nikhil Girdhar, Product Marketing Manager; Shrivatsa Upadhye, Snr Technical Marketing Architect
    Most security breaches in the cloud are the result of simple configuration errors, and many organizations struggle to enforce policies on secure usage to avoid these mistakes.

    Oracle and KPMG’s 2020 Cloud Threat Report found that 92% of respondents believe their organization has a gap between the rate of cloud adoption and the maturity of their cloud security and compliance processes.

    This session will share some practical examples to showcase how to:

    - Get the right security visibility and context to educate developers
    - Quantify cloud security and compliance posture through KPIs
    - Detect Day 2 misconfiguration mistakes
    - Remediate misconfigurations before a criminal exploits them
    - Proactively integrate Day 0 security and compliance into the DevOps process

  • Multiple Clouds. One Solution. Driving Governance and Optimization in the Cloud Recorded: Dec 8 2020 47 mins
    Mike Giacometti, Senior Product Manager, CloudHealth by VMware
    According to Gartner, over 75% of enterprises will have adopted a multi or hybrid cloud strategy by 2021, up from 30% in 2018. This shift is a result of the autonomy that developers gain in a decentralized cloud environment, but the increase in agility and flexibility that comes with the cloud is a double-edged sword; a multi-cloud environment can introduce unexpected complexity that jeopardizes your ability to understand costs and ensure compliance with policies and regulations.

    · Visibility into costs and usage across all public and private clouds

    costs.

    automate when needed
    · Graphical reports and dashboards to inform key stakeholders
