With the cloud now a magnet for all types of data, central IT is in a tough position. Business units want to exploit the cloud’s vaunted elasticity, scalability, and reduced deployment costs to spin up data systems fast, especially for analytics and data science. Wait a minute, says IT: What about governance and security? How will we manage—much less find—the data when it is spread across disjointed “shadow IT” systems both on premises and in the cloud? If we can’t just “lift and shift” everything into the cloud due to regulatory and other concerns, which data sets and workloads belong where? Finally, how do we avoid the sticker shock many organizations experience when they barrel into the cloud without understanding the real cost drivers?
Join this TDWI Webinar to learn how central IT can develop a positive and effective strategy for cloud data management. We will address how to take advantage of the cloud’s benefits while also tending to enterprise concerns across on-premises and cloud systems, including governance, security, data management, and performance.
Topics this webinar will cover include:
- Workload selection and management: How to choose the right workloads to move into the cloud, consolidate smaller clusters, eject “noisy neighbors,” and burst on-premises workloads into the cloud to meet business needs
- Governance, compliance, and security: How central IT can address these issues and achieve consistency during data movement, migration, and other phases
- Managing the data silo problem: Strategies for central IT to work with business units to reduce silo proliferation and arrive at good data catalogs, better data curation, and optimized performance
- Scalability, elasticity, and cost: How to scale workloads, take advantage of cloud elasticity, and gain a realistic view of the costs involved so you can make the right decisions for your organization
