iConnect: Break Through the Cloud – Secure, Simple, Agile and Empowered by Data
Public cloud platforms offer amazing opportunities for companies to become more agile, lower costs, improve customer experience and allow experimentation. With this great power, comes great complexity, spanning various dimensions and layers, from initial planning, design and architecture to operating applications using the vast cloud “tool box” that is readily available. This topic intends to address the aspects of Security, Availability, Agility and Simplicity that are key challenges in this transformation. How do we balance Security, Data, Availability, Operability and Agility at scale? What are the blockers for companies that migrate from an Internally Hosted Data Center to a Cloud hosting environment? Who are your customers in this journey and what are the benefits? How do we align capabilities and leadership within organizations to embrace this journey ? This panel discussion attempts to bring out the guiding principles and strategic capabilities required to achieve the broader Cloud Vision.
