Originally broadcast on

Duration: 60 minutes (including Q&A)

Hosted by SAPinsider, sponsored by IBM

In an increasingly digitized economy driven by a rising tide of data, the most successful companies will be those that can put their business data to best use in a flexible and scalable environment, which begins with a well-executed digital transformation. Organizations running SAP landscapes have a variety of options available to them to achieve these goals, and two in particular are well suited to the tasks: cognitive computing and managed cloud services.

In this webinar, you will learn how a combination of managed cloud services and cognitive computing enables you to rapidly digitize your business operations and take advantage of a wide range of opportunities to use your data to make faster, better business decisions.

Topics include:

• How to enable a fully managed, production-ready cloud environment built for enterprise-class performance using managed cloud services

• How to evaluate cloud services providers and make the right choice for your own organization

• How to use managed cloud services with cognitive use cases in hybrid cloud deployments, which are rapidly becoming the “new norm”
