Overview

What if ...  you could securely consume public cloud in your data center?

IT and business executives in organisations in the Benelux region expect that almost half the revenue will come from digital products and services in just two years. As the economy turns “digital first”, IT infrastructure environments are modernised and evolve into digital platforms that enable digital businesses. Cloud is a critical element in the digital platform. Cloud employment today, is an ongoing efforts to utilise cloud native technologies and optimise the use of multiple deployment models.

Join us on the 17th June and listen to client stories, use cases and interact with the experts on the optimal form of hybrid cloud and what it can bring to your organisation. IDC and IBM will present their views on the requirements for the digital platform, including how public cloud services, as well as the client’s specific cloud and on-premise infrastructure can efficiently be utilised in a digital first infrastructure.

At the webinar you will learn:

  • How far are your peers in adopting hybrid cloud and embracing orchestration tools and processes?
  • What are the achieved advantaged and challenges faced in the IT modernisation and cloud journey?
  • Why should you consider on-premise public cloud resources instead of a private cloud deployment?

Latest IDC insights

Anders Elbak

Associate Director, IDC Nordic

The time when the cloud was an alternative location to run your VMs are long gone. Today, cloud is the foundation organisations’ IT modernisation process that is paramount for the business – whether the objective is to transform the business model, to improve efficiency, or reduce cost. Organisations’ cloud journey today involves architectural changes, application modernisation, as well as skills development and organisational changes.

Anders will reveal the trends in digital business transformation and IT modernisation, and argue why cloud is an essential part of the journey. He will present the latest IDC findings on organisations’ use of multiple clouds and deployment models and discuss why organisations struggle to realise the full potential of cloud.

The complex world of multi cloud environments!

Marc Loos

IBM Technology Evangelist, Enterprise Container Team Technology Leader Emea, IBM

Dennis Lauwers

Distinguished Engineer Hybrid Cloud EMEA, IBM

The complexity of building, deploying, and managing applications in multiple cloud environments is not an easy feat and can ultimately degrade the customer experience. The complexities of your current infrastructure, skills needs, and organizational silos may make it challenging to prioritize where and how to start applying the technology and move with agility. Should you choose any cloud, on-premises data center, or from the edge to consistently deploy, manage and control your workloads across these environments?

Marc and Dennis will explore how best to run your workloads in the location of your choice to better meet legal requirements, compliance standards, data speeds and network latency requirements, while modernizing applications and increasing developer productivity and velocity. They will look at best practice examples and potential pitfalls along the way.
