Cloud Expo Europe 2019: Tips and Tech Talks

Share this post:

Why attend Cloud Expo Europe? According to research from Ovum, while 20 percent of business processes have already moved to the cloud, 80 percent of mission-critical workloads and sensitive data are still running on-premises because of performance and regulatory requirements. As they enter the next phase of their cloud journey, many organizations will be moving away from “one cloud fits all”.

Not every workload is a candidate for the public cloud. Businesses will increasingly drive value from the integration of public and private clouds as they seek to get the most out of their cloud investments by taking a hybrid multicloud approach. A hybrid multicloud environment uses a combination of on-premises, private cloud and public cloud architecture, with best-in-class resources from different cloud vendors.

Businesses tell us they need an open standards approach to cloud which entails developing, running and deploying applications in a multi-cloud environment, regardless of vendor or technology.  Some companies are already running cloud from between five and 16 cloud vendor.  Organisations need hybrid and multicloud environments comprised of the right tools and infrastructure to help get their jobs done more efficiently.

At Cloud Expo on 12 & 13th March, IBM Cloud subject matter experts will be sharing tips and delivering 15 minutes  Tech Talks to help businesses overcome the complexity of managing multiple clouds and moving mission critical workloads applications in a multicloud environment.  Join us to continue into the next phase of your cloud journey.
