Navigating the Cloud Tipping Point

Session Description

Every organization reaches a technology tipping point. New systems and processes work better and make more financial sense than existing ones. We are at a cloud tipping point—a time when organizations are opting to be cloud forward or cloud first. In this session we’ll discuss the organizational shift to cloud as well as the 5 ways that visionary IT organizations can become strategic partners in this time of transition. The move to a cloud forward state goes well beyond the replacement of aging systems and traditional refresh cycles. The shift to cloud has become as much about technology as it has about innovation. In fact, for some organizations the shift to cloud has also become cultural. Dev Ops and Line of Business have a strong voice in cloud selection and procurement. So what does the term cloud first mean and why now? In this session we’ll also explore how a Dev Ops philosophy is leading the charge in a Cloud First world. So if DevOps is driving this cultural and economic shift, where does this leave IT? It’s clear that moving to a cloud- first world changes just about everything. How can your IT team navigate the change? Forward thinking IT firms are shifting from being a builders of computing infrastructure to being brokers of cloud services.
