Evolving in the Cloud Era

Wednesday 8th October, 2:00pm

The era of the cloud requires IT professionals to shift their thinking. It's not about infrastructure management, but service provider management. What may be a new concept for most professionals will be in how they consider the new operational and governance capabilities that are required.

James Knapp guides us on a journey to the hybrid model of the cloud, and discusses us why the transformation is less about technology than people and processes. Knapp presents interesting questions and potential challenges organisations face in a typical cloud transformation project, and what steps organisations need to take in order to get there.

Learn how to assess cloud opportunities, the operational maturity gap to a Hybrid Cloud state and how to develop the adoption and transition roadmap to achieve the new-reality future state.
