IDC Cloud The Future of Digital Infrastructure is Cloud!

DIGITAL Event | October 25, 2021

Overview

 

We are now entering the next phase of cloud adoption, where enterprise applications are moving to the cloud and IT organizations are required to deal with multilayer applications in complex multicloud environments and with dynamic cloud-native applications on the same platforms.

Such complexity introduces a wide range of challenges, typically causing organizations to ask themselves questions such as: Which workloads should be placed in which clouds? What's the criteria for deciding workload placement? How can we best govern cloud usage and ensure regulatory compliance? How can we gain visibility over the performance of cloud services? How can we secure enterprise applications and cloud-native applications? And how can we enable cloud-based innovation from edge to core to cloud and drive the right level of connectivity?

To address these challenges, IT organizations should look not only to select the right cloud providers, cloud operating model, and target architecture, but also consider the skills requirements and cultural change that inevitably follow a change in technology platform.

The GCC edition of the IDC Cloud Roadshow 2021 will examine the very latest industry trends and explore ways in which organizations can move from islands of innovation to cloud-based operating models at scale and drive a cultural evolution that speeds up innovation and business transformation.

IDC Keynote: The Path Ahead for Cloud: Digital Infrastructure Delivers Innovation in a Digital-First World

Richard Villars

Group Vice President, Worldwide Research, IDC Worldwide

In our increasingly digital-first world, emerging technologies continue to disrupt the way business is done, and enterprises looking to compete in today’s marketplace are fast realizing that cloud is the platform that enables the fastest access to these innovative technologies. This session will showcase why a dynamic, scalable, and resilient cloud-based digital infrastructure that is deployable anywhere will be the digital foundation that drives the Future of Work, data management, customer experience, and digital innovation

11:15

Hybrid Data Management Across Multiple Clouds

As public clouds mature from a mere technological novelty to an established business platform in a relatively short period of time, the value of data to an organization’s bottom-line increases. To optimally put data to use, executives need the right tools and techniques for managing data in a safe and effective manner, no matter where that data resides.

Delivering Enterprise Level Agility in the Cloud Era

Today’s organizations looking to digitally transform are forced to weigh cost controls vs. business agility. Despite corporate decision makers finding a clear link between cloud computing and business agility, the main concern is still cost savings rather than potential benefits. This session will cut through the hype and present the facts about what cloud can really deliver to both IT and the organization as a whole.

Future Intelligence: Putting Hyperscale Analytics to Work 

Hyperscale is the ability of an IT system or architecture to scale exponentially and rapidly to respond to demand that is increasingly heavily. With hyperscale datacenters, enterprises can replace individual physical components as opposed to replacing the entire server. This approach gives extreme flexibility in scaling at the physical level, as components can be added modularly. Learn more about how hyperscale datacenters are changing the game from the way hardware components are sourced to the way they are designed.

Overcoming App Modernization and Data Integration Issues Across Cloud Silos

According to IDC research, in 2021, enterprise cloud architects will recognize that operational complexity is reaching a breaking point. ITOps, DevOps, and CloudOps teams will struggle to maintain service levels, manage costs, and ensure security and compliance across loosely coupled hybrid and multicloud architectures spanning private clouds, public clouds, hosted clouds, and traditional datacenters and edge systems. This session will provide a useful array of tools and strategies to break down silos and a simpler approach to managing complexity

Impact of DX Strategies on Infrastructure

Although DX across organizations bears certain similarities, each is unique based on their exact needs. Executives driving an organization’s DX efforts need to assess their IT investments, management strategies, implementation/integration roadmaps, talent acquisition and retention, and cloud migration/storage options to ensure a DX journey that enhances the organization’s performance on multiple fronts.

Maximize Agility, Minimize Risk in Cloud Deployment and Migration

More and more organizations today are waking up to the fact that migrating from on-premises architectures to cloud-based architectures is no longer a choice, but a competitive necessity. Yet, while this mass shift to cloud is increasing IT agility like never before, it is also increasing business risk.

Learn about best practices that balance and mitigate migration risk and the importance of detailed planning, sound architecture frameworks, and proper alignment with service partners to maximize your organization’s potential for success.
