ISVs have been deploying solutions in Cloud settings for decades. What sets this “new Cloud paradigm” apart and fuels the shift are the services and workflows that are now more easily available in a Cloud (Private or Public) environment.
Join Andi Mann, VP Cloud Strategy for CA and Jeanne Morain, Director Alliances for Flexera Software as they provide prescriptive guidance for ISVs and Intelligent Device Manufacturers for cutting through the Cloud clutter. They will identify, dissect and discuss some of the key Cloud challenges as well as share best practices for licensing and porting applications to the Cloud (Private or Public). In addition, they will provide insights from key customer and consultant interviews (conducted for their recent book, Visible Ops Private Cloud) on Cloud bursting, licensing implications and regulation hurdles facing ISVs and their customer.
