Today businesses are increasingly turning to private and hybrid cloud solutions to reduce costs and enable more flexible and scalable business processes. These cloud enabled infrastructures involve complex management and operational challenges. Still, there is a better way. A new generation of Software Defined Environment (SDE) makes it possible to deliver common cloud services for compute, storage and network while supporting multiple hypervisors and multi-vendor platforms. This approach is one of the most dynamic innovations in private and hybrid clouds, which brings advanced automation and orchestration for both system management and software distribution. Moreover, it provides self-service provisioning and an accountability mechanism to allow IT to keep track of who is doing what with company resources. Many federal agencies are building this strategy that can handle the need to both optimize and innovate.
Looking at the growing demand for this technology among our federal stakeholders, IBM along with the Business of Federal Technology (FCW) is presenting a live webcast today, June 24th 2014 at 2 PM ET. I invite you to join us and see how innovations like SDE, open and other technologies in private and hybrid cloud can bring superior business value while reducing costs.
Also, I will be demonstrating real-life solutions and use cases that will help you make the most of this event as we explore cloud enabled software defined environments. Please join us and be a part of this unique opportunity. Register now. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on how you handle your IT infrastructure.
