This KuppingerCole Virtual Event will help you navigate the tough decisions your company has to make in pursuing a cloud-first strategy and provide answers to complex questions to help identify a clear path ahead and ensure your business gains maximum benefit from a well-planned and  carefully considered strategy.

Utilizing cloud capabilities is crucial to reduce costs, while improving the speed, scalability, and accuracy of business applications. For companies moving to a cloud strategy, it is essential to have a roadmap and ensure that the move is aligned with the overall business strategy. Despite the above-mentioned potential benefits, user experience, specific cost, governance, and security must be considered.

Most enterprises are employing both public and on-premise cloud infrastructures to get the benefit of both worlds. But challenges remain such as migration, integration, security, and effective management. Furthermore, edge computing combines novel data processing capabilities with performing rapid data analysis in the cloud. Maintaining this complex architecture requires thorough checks to ensure security and compliance with regulations. Having a clear understanding of these issues is essential to the success of today’s digital enterprise.
