Obstacles to large-scale cloud adoptionMany CIOs recognize the value of cloud, but there can be significant barriers to large-scale cloud adoption.

Company leaders find their organizations unprepared to migrate the optimal workloads to cloud for early success, facing security challenges they didn’t anticipate, making IT decisions that don’t make financial sense for the business, or taking a minimal or ad hoc approach to governance and organizational issues.

All these scenarios can unintentionally create sub-optimal cloud environments. Organizations looking to avoid or remove such obstacles, and free up IT resources to reinvest in more strategic projects, can join more than 20,000 thought leaders and industry experts at IBM InterConnect 2017, 19 – 23 March, in Las Vegas.

At InterConnect, speakers will discuss how organizations can prepare for cloud’s impact and ensure successful implementations. Here’s a sample of some of the featured topics in the cloud managed services area:
