Besides having been around as a buzzword for quite some time now, current economic challenges seem to strongly increase interest in leveraging cloud computing for the enterprise, finding new competitive advantages, and of course reducing investments into internal infrastructures. In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger will discuss with you Kuppinger Cole´s "Roadmap to the Cloud" - a guideline on how to prepare for cloudsourcing initiatives.
As enterprise IT professionals try to deliver better services with less resources, cloud computing is more and more becoming a viable option. Significantly lower capital costs, a more flexible resource usage, and ease of management are some of the arguments pushing enterprise IT into the cloud.
In this Webinar Kuppinger Cole´s Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger will propose a "Roadmap to the Cloud" and show, how enterprises can take advantage of this game-changing technology, without ignoring the risks involved.
The Webinar will also discuss the current state and maturity of cloud solutions and the readiness of enterprise IT infrastructures to leverage the cloud.
Today’s IT environments blend applications and services from multiple public cloud networks, private clouds and on-prem networks, making it difficult to view and inventory assets deployed across complex hybrid networks, and keep track of the security risks. Organizations need to find a way to improve visibility, identify and prioritize risks, and maintain cyber resiliency.
