IT Cloud Decision Economics: Crafting a Mature Cloud
June 19, 2013 – 11:00 a.m., U.S. Eastern time
the past several years, many IT organizations have experimented with private and
public cloud solutions on an ad hoc and often opportunistic basis. From
Infrastructure-as-a-Service to SaaS to PaaS to vendor proprietary cloud
solutions and open source options. Debates rage as to whether public cloud will
displace private cloud and which app should run where. All of this in the
context of an assurance that data stored in the cloud will be secure and
available AND comply with industry regulations and mandates.
IDC expects that large organizations will have long term dependence on complex,
hybrid infrastructure, middleware and application environments that span public
and private clouds, physical and virtual distributed servers, and even mainframe
based processes. As cloud solutions seek to move from ad hoc pilots to
production operations, it is critical that your organization craft a mature
cloud strategy that steps back from the hype and asks some fundamental questions
Join Research Vice
President of IDC Enterprise Systems Management Software, Mary
Johnston Turner, Research Director for IDC Government Insights, Shawn McCarthy, and Vice President & IT Executive Advisor

- What applications, workloads and business groups would most benefit from
self service, dynamic, elastic scaling and consumption based chargeback or
- What will be the most important IT and business process changes required to
effectively monitor, govern, and optimize hybrid cloud environments?
- At what pace is your organization likely to be able to transition from ad
hoc to optimized hybrid cloud architectures?

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 7:30 - 10:00 AM – Chicago, IL
are increasingly adopting social technologies both within the
enterprise and beyond the firewall. IDC believes that these
technologies offer significant business value if properly
implemented. Enterprise Social Networks provide new opportunities
for collaboration and process improvement. They have also created
new end user expectations. Social technologies are also
transforming the customer experience. However, while CIOs are
asked to meet the changing demands within the enterprise, CMOs are
often moving unilaterally to develop customer facing strategies and
solutions. Join us for this breakfast briefing where Michael Fauscette, Group Vice President, Software Business Solutions, IDC and David McNally, IT Executive Advisory, IDC Insights will be the presenters.
CIO Summit Europe
November 5-7, 2013 - Berlin, Germany
CIO Europe Summit 2013 will once again serve as an arena for senior
level executives to engage in clear and focused dialogue with their
peers and examine their management objectives in a relaxed and vibrant
environment. Influential corporate leaders will discuss relevant issues
that will improve their businesses and help them streamline and take
advantage of the essential IT initiatives that the current business
culture requires. While cutting costs and leveraging spending are
always important elements in an economic downturn, it is up to CIOs to
ensure their companies are utilizing the best possible products and
services. In an increasingly “sink or swim” environment, the CIO Summit
brings together CIOs whose vision and eagerness to improve separate
them from the rest of the pack. IDC Executive Vice President &
Chief Research Officer, Crawford DelPrete, will participate.
