Event Details

Pre-Registration is now closed.  Walk-ins are welcome!

Business applications and enabling information technologies have moved rapidly to the Cloud.  The reasons are compelling:  value, availability, convenience, consistency across locations, better service, reliability, and simplicity of updates and maintenance.   However, Cloud-based solutions must be evaluated across several dimensions as one Cloud probably does not fit for all.

This session will discuss how different organizations evaluated their business needs and on-premise and Cloud solutions for addressing those needs, leading them to a more coherent Cloud strategy for delivering business solutions.

This session will tackle many of today’s popular debates … Is it a one size fits all or not?  Most will say that it is not and that you still need to first look at your business requirements and then based on those determine the right solution for you. Some analysts have said that “private cloud” will never work – other says it will become mainstream.  Some vendors believe that the “Public Cloud” is the only way you will gain the economies of scale that “elastic cloud computing” resources can deliver.  And then others say that the real model will end up being a hybrid of these two offerings.  Some companies are making decisions based simply on business value, almost independent of private, public or hybrid Cloud configurations.  Come listen to experts talk about these three options and debate the merits of each.
