Cloud computing is a great idea whose time has arrived. There is no doubt the purported benefits of cloud computing have inspired many CIOs and CDOs to launch cloud modernization initiatives. These initiatives are intended to reduce the reliance on large-scale capital acquisitions of on-premises hardware and software, migrate both the applications and the data to cloud-based platforms, and improve application reliability and scalability. Unfortunately, transitioning from an on-premises environment to a single cloud service provider’s environment is challenging, and more complex challenges emerge as organizations organically evolve their hybrid, multicloud environments.
In this webinar, we explore why some of the widely accepted statements of conventional wisdom regarding cloud use might not always be so wise. We will question some commonly accepted beliefs about cloud computing, especially around architectural enhancements, challenges associated with data privacy and protection, or performance and scalability concerns. By exploring where conventional wisdom might be challenged, and providing some ideas to mitigate those situations, attendees will learn about alternate approaches to hybrid multicloud computing that treat the extended information enterprise through the lens of a single, coherent platform.
Attendees will learn about:
- The impact of separating storage from compute
- Questions raised around cloud economics
- Standardizing data protection across the hybrid environment
- The opportunities and challenges of cloud-native analytics
- The growing and more prominent role of the data scientist
