Overview

Is cloud an IT strategy or should it rather be driven by business needs? We see a shift in the market where business outcomes determine the speed of cloud adoption and key business questions need to be answered to understand where cloud makes sense.

In this webcast, experts from IDC and Rimini Street will discuss the following key points that will help you to determine what the optimal cloud set up is for your organisation:

  • Cost versus benefit. How do I get cloud costs under control? Or are other benefits more important than cost? We are going to explore multiple levels of cost management and ROI, ranging from basic cost savings, to extended cost savings and long-term strategic ROI. What is the right mix of cloud services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and on-premises private cloud, hybrid cloud)?
  • How can I deal with the complexities of a hybrid multicloud environment? Managing multiple cloud services is complex and interoperability is not a given. 
  • What about support? Can I get the same level of support when I migrate my applications to the cloud? Who can support me on my cloud journey?
  • How can I align my cloud journey with my business needs short-term and longer term?
