2020 Technology Landscape: A Brave New Digital World Summit

With the advances in architectural compatibility between on-premises technology, and the top public cloud providers, it would seem natural to assume that enterprise applications are now moving with ease into the cloud. The reality, however, is that the ability to do something is far less important than ensuring that it is done correctly. There is still a chasm to cross before the majority of organizations feel comfortable moving their enterprise applications into the cloud.

Nathan Biggs, CEO at House of Brick Technologies, an industry leader in virtualization and cloud computing for enterprise applications, and John Grange, CTO at OpsCompass, a cloud governance software provider, will share their direct experience working with clients on developing their enterprise cloud strategies. The discussion will center on the business considerations for an enterprise cloud migration that go beyond technology, and focus on the risk areas of cost containment, process governance, and vendor license compliance.
