EDT: 9:00 a.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. | GMT: 13:00 The cloud is often seen as a great way of saving money, but there is an emerging trend of organizations that cannot prove a ROI. We examine the common financial and operational misconceptions of moving applications to the cloud and where others have gone wrong.
EDT: 9:00 a.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. | GMT: 13:00 Because Office 365 contains many products and changes all the time, most customers struggle to implement it. Drawing from Gartner client experiences on what works and what doesn't, we offer time-proven guidance on the steps needed to implement Office 365 correctly the first time.
EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Cloud and dbPaaS represent a different financial model for procuring and consuming services. This presentation explores the key differences between on-premises, IaaS and dbPaaS approaches to DBMS deployment and outlines a framework for calculating cost of ownership.
EDT: 1:00 p.m. | PDT: 10:00 a.m. | GMT: 17:00 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.
Cloud is no longer an "if" but a "how" for most organizations. Many recognize they will need to adopt cloud services from multiple service providers to remain competitive, but face prioritization quandaries and technical hurdles along the way. We discuss how to build a solution path for public cloud adoption within your business.
Complying with software license terms and conditions is complex, and the penalties for failure to do so can be high. Traditional license metrics present challenges that only increase with changes to the technology with which they are used. The proliferation of SaaS, cloud, BYOD and IoT is challenging organisations whose software asset management capabilities may already be struggling.
Gartner's framework for explaining intelligent automation services encompasses a large spectrum of disruptive technologies (i.e. robotic process automation [RPA], runbook automation, cognitive and artificial intelligence) that will give rise to the most tectonic shifts in the sourcing role since offshore. Back in 1999, the big disruption was the use of offshore to create labor arbitrage.
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.
Organizations adopting Azure AD and Office 365 need to integrate these cloud services with their enterprise Active Directory (AD). AD must be optimized to achieve low-friction user provisioning and access to the cloud. This session discusses approaches to AD optimization and factors influencing their selection in real-life situations.
