Is it possible to operate and secure your multiple clouds as though one cloud?

Removing complexity and enabling agility with the new possibilities of Multicloud

July 9, 2019 10:00 am GMT

Question: what is the biggest obstacle to progress for IT leaders? We’d argue it’s complexity. How do you keep pace with change when you have so many systems to change? How do you ensure coherent operations with so many new workloads running in so many different places? How do you grow capacity with a flat budget when you have so many systems to maintain? How do you stay secure with so many systems to patch?

And those questions have never been more relevant than in today’s multicloud world.

Multicloud is an operational reality for enterprises moving to the cloud. It’s the recognition that economic, data privacy, application and latency requirements drive the adoption of more than one cloud across an enterprise IT infrastructure. But multiple clouds can add complexity and cost – and you don’t want either.

As enterprises navigate their way from conventional networks to multicloud architectures, they will naturally shift how they approach architectural design, deployment, and operations. The question is how? How can you do it all seamlessly and whilst reducing complexity at every stage? Are there proven, agnostic steps to success and simplicity?

Join five senior IT executives and thought leaders on this roundtable discussion as we explore approaches in the path to a secure and automated multicloud, looking at the people, process and technology you’ll need to navigate a much brighter – and less complex – future.
