Description

Become a cloudLEADER

Design > Deliver > Deploy > Secure

A highly structured approach to Cloud adoption with minimal risk and maximum benefit

Though the Cloud represents a multitude of new and exciting business opportunities, it can also expose organizations to new risks. It is for this reason that we have created cloudLEADER—a highly defined blueprint that enables customers to better understand where they are within the Cloud maturity spectrum, and how they can leverage the Cloud for their unique needs.

The program is based on our in-depth expertise and long history supporting the needs of Enterprise IT organizations—helping many of them adopt the Cloud—and forms the basis for cloudLEADER’s simple yet comprehensive and structured approach. Through the program, we help organizations consider the implications of the Cloud, and how to determine which Cloud best suits their needs.

We designed the cloudLEADER process to cover all critical stages associated with moving to the Cloud: from Design, to Delivery, to Deployment, to Security.

  • Design
    Design Thinking is a collaborative and interactive approach that delivers the basis for features, functionalities, and/or applications. Our Design Thinking Workshops incept the project while seamlessly defining the associated scope and success factors, leading to the definition of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) that can be implemented quickly to expedite success and to prove the business case.
  • Deliver
    Starting with the MVP scope, our highly skilled team members and developers work within an agile project buildup to deliver the functionalities. Furthermore, our designers ensure that the user experience is fully aligned with the expectations of the end-user, all while our architects ensure that key Cloud concepts such as microservices are put to good use.
  • Deploy
    The choice of an appropriate compute model can depend on many factors. That said, there are many valid choices including VMs, serverless, or containers. For more complex deployments, container orchestration using technologies such as Kubernetes (and some specific implementations such as IBM ICP) can prove to be key to ensuring operational success of a Cloud deployment under the governance of a full DevOps process.
  • Secure
    There are a multitude of considerations that must be addressed when implementing a secure Cloud project. For instance, how to manage in-house and Cloud identity; how to secure and scan containers for compliance; how to secure data in the Cloud; and how to enforce compliance and governance on data exchanged with a SaaS application and the Cloud.

At this unique and highly informative half-day event, multiple sessions will address not only the aforementioned topics in theory, but also review in-depth customer use cases to demonstrate how to implement each stage utilizing the cloudLEADER blueprint methodology, as well as the decision process behind each stage.

Attendees can choose to attend the full event, or select any combination of sessions that best meets their specific requirements.
