Main Conference (Aug 6th, 2019)

The nature and characteristics of adopting hybrid cloud

Muliti-cloud, Hybrid-cloud, Open cloud - In this talk, Mandi will explore the challenges and benefits of adopting a cloud strategy. Cloud makes everything easy right? But without an industry standard, and where the lowest common denominator is basic infrastructure how do you solve those complex real-world problems.

So you want self service, immediate returns, low risk and low cost - is this even possible without vast engineering capability and large scale? Staying relevant in a competitive market has never been so difficult, or customers attention moved so quickly. How do you capture the cloud and get to your customer satisfaction faster?
