Getting the Best Value From the Cloud

IDC Cloud

Optimizing Cloud Economics

While the principles of cloud economics are compelling, not every organization is reaping the benefits. Register to find out how to take advantage of cloud technologies, without overspending your budget.
Cloud and all its permutations will continue to play ever greater roles across the IT industry as enterprises pivot to a digital-first economy. Organizations look to automate operations, deliver rich customer experiences, and launch new products and services – and the cloud can help with all these. However, there is no silver bullet, and IT leaders need to think about how to unlock the potential of the cloud.
Some organizations have experienced higher costs by moving to the cloud, which has led IT decision-makers to question whether the promise of modern cloud economics is real or just clever marketing.
Why Attend?
IDC Cloud Forum aims to connect senior technology and business leaders and provide them with the latest IDC research and industry trends. Register for this event if you are interested in questions such as what are the perspective technologies that allow for building cost-effective cloud infrastructure, or how to recreate pieces of legacy applications using modern tooling. Cannot join us on March 23? If you are interested in the cloud's latest trends, register anyway - we will share the materials afterwards with all registrants.
