Forward-looking organisations are on a journey from ‘cloud first’ to ‘cloud smart’.
According to recent studies, 87% of enterprises have already adopted a multi-cloud strategy while 72% of enterprise companies have adopted a hybrid cloud strategy. It is now time to put those strategies to the test. It is time to evaluate and understand workload mobility and to create operational efficiency so that cloud works for you.
After an era of cloud-first decision making, organisations are now looking to rebalance
workloads. There is an increasing trend of building hybrid applications which can profit from adopting cloud-scale resources on demand. This allows firms to build, operate, and optimise business-changing applications, with limited resources. And do so at speed.
At this CIONET roundtable event – brought to you in association with Hitachi Vantara – we will explore what role cloud plays in your organisation. Whether you have deployed public cloud or private cloud – or a hybrid combination of the two – we will investigate whether this approach is driving tangible change.

In short, we will discuss hybrid cloud challenges and opportunities, best practice guidance, and the steps to avoid.
The themes we will debate include:

• Optimising workloads on public and private cloud
• Identifying the right cloud platforms for the right workloads
• Running traditional applications in a hybrid, multi-cloud environment
• Finding the balance between cost savings and investments in modern platforms to support application modernisation
• Meeting regulatory and data sovereignty demands
This is an event for those who are a deep into their cloud journey and for those just at the beginning. It is for those who want to know how to put the ‘smart’ into ‘cloud smart’. Join CIONET, Hitachi Vantara, and a select group of your peers to discuss how to achieve true cloud application modernisation, a state of continuous innovation and improvement.
