The cloud is not a destination; it is a fundamentally new way of building technology infrastructure. Just as the internet required print, video and audio content providers to embrace new possibilities and solve new problems, the process of digital transformation requires companies to think differently about how their applications and business processes will work in the cloud.
We’ll explore how best practices for cloud computing are evolving during an unprecedented economic period with a panel of experts who can help your company determine the most efficient way to make use of this historic shift in infrastructure technology.
Key themes we will explore:
> The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation across industries. We’ll examine how companies in retail, manufacturing, health care and other industries are transforming their infrastructure to meet new demands from their customers. Businesses have vastly different needs when it comes to procuring and managing cloud services, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.
> Digital transformation also requires companies to think about technology as a service rather than a box. The pitfalls of “lift and shift” are now well understood: Businesses can’t expect to simply move their applications as written to the cloud, and some applications might not need the cloud. To unlock the potential of digital transformation, companies need to properly evaluate the shiny new technologies dangled by cloud providers against their existing investments.
> Platform companies are getting bigger and tempting tech buyers with managed services, but once you move data into a cloud, it’s hard to move it out. How should organizations obsessed with application reliability and performance build their applications around emerging cloud services like serverless computing or Kubernetes while managing complexity? Should they consider multiple cloud providers?
