Drive Data Insight and Business Growth in the Cloud


Duration: 60 minutes (including Q&A)

Hosted by Data Informed, sponsored by IBM

Choose the wrong cloud environment and provider, and you
limit the value you can derive from your data, cause delays in bringing products and services to market, and cede critical first-mover advantage to your competition.

Join cloud expert Fausto Bernardini as he shares real-world insights into how customers are benefitting from the cloud today and leveraging it for a sustainable competitive advantage that empowers them to save time, cut costs, and improve efficiencies.

Attend to:

• Weigh the risks and benefits of various cloud
deployment options

• Determine the right kind of cloud deployment for
specific workloads

• Assess what level of management is appropriate in various cloud scenarios – self-service with no management, selected managed services or fully managed. Hint: It differs by business

• Identify the key questions to ask in evaluating a cloud model for big data or analytics workloads-- questions that help you go beyond the typical “it depends” answer

• Create a thoughtful cloud strategy and execution plan with shelf life and avoid the pitfalls of bleeding-edge companies
that didn’t

• Drill down into the nuances of SLAs—learn how to
establish ones that set your organization up for success
and minimize exposure

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: CIOs, IT Directors, Data Center Managers, VPs of Applications and other decision makers, influencers, and stakeholders who want to learn more about running applications in the cloud. At the conclusion of this webinar, all attendees will know the important questions to ask any cloud provider about its management practices, as well as disaster recovery, compliance, and governance. Plus, learn how to evaluate the answers to those questions and understand the implications to contemporary business.
