Making Smart Choices in Complex Cloud Environments

Nearly all business leaders today understand the need to move to the cloud. But many do not appreciate the complexity of the decisions needed to get true business value from their cloud investments. Should they go with cloud-native applications or simply lift and shift their legacy systems to the cloud? Should they leverage hyper-scale clouds, private clouds, or a cloud infrastructure in their own data centers—or some combination? And what about the governance model, security and risk, and the organizational changes needed in this complex environment? 
In this fast-paced digital forum, four industry thought leaders shared their insights and lessons learned with organizations that have gotten smart about these decisions. Specifically:  
  • Extracting maximum business value from cloud investments 
  • Reinventing the customer experience as part of the cloud transition 
  • Modernizing the organization’s digital core 
  • Treating cloud as continuous innovation, not a one-time migration 
  • Developing a cloud culture throughout the organization 
  • Creating a sustainable future in the cloud
