According to Goldman Sachs, Cloud uptake is still at only 10% of its full potential as a global information utility. Many corporates such as global banks are only just embarking on their cloud journey. Recent experiences suggest that migration is not smooth sailing, nor is operational control in a multi-cloud environment. 

Our discussion event will look at the challenges and opportunities of a cloud-first strategy both in terms of Dev Op (cloud based agile applications) and Run Op (cloud governance) with reference to:

  • Compliance – how to hand off your heritage IT operations safely to third party cloud hyper-scalers, with appropriate cost efficiencies and contractual flexibility
  • Architectural completeness – how to enable applications and data to interact and flow seamlessly between on-prem and multi-cloud environments
  • Run Ops – develop the appropriate service integrator relationship (one throat to choke) to ensure business continuity at the end user level

CIONET & Hitachi Vantara invite you to a virtual wine tasting event on 23rd February at 17.30 to share and discuss Cloud migration and operational issues. Suranjan Som, Vice President of Hitachi Vantara’s Financial Sector and Krishnaprasath Hari, Vice President Digital & Cloud Modernization of Hitachi Vantara will provide insight into how leading Fortune 500 customers are tackling the transition from on-prem to cloud. Roger Camrass of CIONET will host the session. As with all CIONET events we believe that this will help empower you in your digital leadership role.
