EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 The ease of use and direct pricing of G Suite are very appealing to midsize organizations, as are the breadth of services and frequent functionality releases of Microsoft Office 365. Midmarket IT leaders need a pragmatic approach to determine which solution best suits their business requirements.
EDT: 9:00 a.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. | GMT: 13:00 As a result of the underutilization of cloud office services, the payback from Office 365 investments is often only a fraction of what it could be. There is, therefore, a great opportunity for application leaders not only to maximize the return from cloud office investments but also to help employees become more effective by exploiting the full potential of a cloud office suite.
Security concerns continue as organizations globally grapple with technology changes affecting them. Threats to that technology and supporting process continue to grow in number and sophistication. Traditional IT security leaders have become digital security leaders as they expand support to address risks for technology-savvy engineering and physical environments while embracing expanded roles for cloud and mobile services. This webinar reviews the lessons learned and informs listeners how to use the past to create the future.
This webinar sets out the current story of cloud security, providing an overview of the unique risks of the various forms of public cloud computing, so that security professionals can help the rest of their organization fully understand and address cloud risks. The unique security challenges of IaaS and SaaS are discussed, a summary of the current and near-term products and practices that can be used to monitor and control the use of public cloud computing are provided.
Business customers, who often have little understanding of the cost and complexity of software contracts, task sourcing professionals with moving workloads to outsourcers or cloud providers. Managing software license costs and compliance in environments controlled by third parties is causing increasing concern.
The top question in cloud computing is "How do we build out a comprehensive cloud strategy?" CIOs and enterprise architects are struggling with which issues to face first, examining what others have done and creating a strategy to coordinate cloud success. This webinar takes a "cookbook approach" to building a cloud strategy, one service at a time.
Most traditional IT organizations have existing data centers that need continued support while cloud technologies are adopted. Organizations will increasingly live in a hybrid world, with some applications in the public cloud and others in data centers. In this webinar, we review a hybrid IT world emerging in four distinct deployment scenarios.
EST: 11:00 a.m. | PST: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 16:00 This webinar explains the importance of tailoring your negotiation plan to be vendor-specific. One negotiation process does not fit all vendors, so to optimize negotiations with the "Big Four" megavendors (IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP) Gartner has created a four-step process called T4. T4 can and should be followed to plan and negotiate your optimal deal.
