Joe Fitzgerald, Chief Product Officer, ManageIQ and Dave Bartoletti, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research
Join ManageIQ in welcoming featured speaker, Dave Bartoletti, Forrester Senior Analyst Infrastructure & Operations to learn how IT organizations can get past their “virtualization tipping point” to achieve full cloud enablement. Organizations today have virtualized nearly half of their production workloads across a wide spectrum of business applications. Virtual environments are now powering the most business-critical applications, and management efficiency has never been more important. You need to deliver new services quickly, reliably, and consistently to meet the ever-growing demands of your business users. At the same time, some of those business users are exploring public cloud IaaS solutions on their own, driven by the promise of agility and low cost. In order to deliver better and more efficient IT services and build your company's pathway to the cloud, you need to get control of your virtual environment and these emerging cloud assets. You need to create and deliver IT services that combine the best of both. We'll explore the management tools you need to take charge of your virtual environment as well as your cloud workloads.
