With the chaos we left as we "progressed" through Cloud 1.0 technologies, the footprints of now outdated technology innovations still remain in many of our IT data centers, not only from an infrastructure standpoint but from a process and practice perspective.
So, what to do? Adopt another approach to technology and layer that above those that already exist, creating additional complexity, risk and, ultimately, cost? Or, go Back to Basics and take the steps necessary to position yourself for an agile, competitive, flexible, cost effective IT service delivery organization?
Join us for a dinner and discussion as Andy Lewis, former Western Region CTO/CIO at EMC and SVP of Global Infrastruture at Visa, examines the process of going "Back to Basics" aboard one of Seattle's premier yachts, Argosy's Lady Mary and explore the evolution of cloud computing technologies and how to reconcile the footprints of outdated investments with the newest advances in the market!
