Fast-track your hybrid cloud transformation to Microsoft Azure with security and confidence


Being partners with Microsoft for 30 years and having integrated with Redhat and Nordcloud, we at IBM Benelux thought it was high time to get together and do a webinar. Maybe a webinar is not one of the most original type of events, especially looking back at a year of lockdowns, quarantines and digital events, however this one will be special. Let me tell you why.

Organizations are investing in modernizing their application portfolios. This means optimizing business operating models within a hybrid cloud strategy to drive cost efficiency, increase productivity and create opportunities for innovation. To achieve these goals, we have learned that in the climate we live in and with the global challenges we face, no organization can tackle these challenges on their own. It takes an ecosystem and multiple partners to achieve this. There is a need for more sustainable solutions and therefore organizations are getting ready to integrate and modernize.

See how Red Hat OpenShift helps organizations achieve more than twice the value of traditional cloud approaches. We will help you leverage the full potential of Microsoft Azure with open innovation using Red Hat OpenShift.

So how does Nordcloud fit in to all of this? Nordcloud’s mission is to help businesses become stronger, more fit and agile with cloud. They are a European leader in cloud implementation, application transformation and managed services. It is one of the few providers triple certified in Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure. In this webinar will deep dive together with them and Red Hat into the world of application transformation on Azure and how to transform your hybrid cloud strategy to accommodate for change.

Special guest in our webinar is Hendrik Devos, head of IT Infrastructure and Cloud at Belfius. They have embarked on their transformation journey with their Cloud Centre of Excellence (CCoE), and we are happy to welcome him in our midst to share their journey and experiences with us.Also joining is Ilja Summula, CTO of Nordcloud, who will touch on some valuable examples and we welcome René Moddejongen, Open Source Lead at Microsoft Western Europe, to join our interactive panel discussion.

It is pretty special to achieve goals like modernize faster to drive business outcomes, become more cost effective, and create a future ready culture embracing new agile ways of working with AI accelerators and automation, in a complex ecosystem with multiple partners.
