A brief orientation to help guide your experience at the event and ensure you utilize all the available resources from gartner and the participating sponsors.
I&O leaders must evolve strategies to provide an agile infrastructure for the business to enable global reach, solve business issues like latency, customer experience, and compliance, while providing the flexibility to enter new markets quickly, anywhere, anytime. This must embrace traditional compute, emerging trends in edge computing, IoT, AI/ML and the ever-changing cloud marketplace. I&O leaders themselves must also evolve the skills, processes and roles to support this brave new world.
Today's network operations teams will require a significant skill shift to benefit from advances in network automation and analytics, and to meet the demands of digital business needs. I&O leaders must champion a paradigm shift to NetOps 2.0 to stay relevant.
Security leaders should already be issuing five-year security plans that take into account the growing prominence of multitenanted public cloud.
● What is your contribution to your organization’s cloud strategy?
● What is your role in ensuring safe and appropriate use of cloud services?
● How will you ensure that the business understands their compliance, privacy, security, continuity and agility requirements?
Hyperscale cloud providers have extended their runtime environments for development and use on edge devices, such as IoT “things.” Signs point to public cloud technology on-premises! This session will detail the distinctions between cloud, core and edge, and the different approaches of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google will be addressed in detail.
Join to learn what future IT operations management teams need to prepare for, where most are at today, and how to get ready for the future.
I&O leaders today are working aggressively in two specific ways: Provisioning infrastructure for business unit stakeholders and ingesting AI techniques to improve I&O efficiencies. Across several hundreds of Gartner inquiries and engagements, Gartner has identified I&O best practices that characterize highly successful and productive AI I&O ecosystems.
This session looks at the new Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities for Hyperconverged Infrastructure and the five workloads of consolidated, business critical, cloud ROBO and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) use cases.
This session will provide an update on the current state of container technology. This will include an analysis of the technology, the vendors that make up the ecosystem and the associated products. Additionally, the issues that enterprises are facing will be discussed. Finally, the session will also discuss how the technology and the industry will evolve in the upcoming three to five years.
After decades of owning and managing data centers, today’s enterprise must grapple with the issues of how to support older applications, while at the same time embracing cloud services, edge environments, IoT and the march toward a digital economy. This session focuses on how enterprises are solving these problems; building a distributed global infrastructure and minimizing risk along the way.
Few I&O leaders are prepared for delivering the adaptive, product-oriented business solutions critical to digital business platform success as most I&O operating models are optimized for technology projects. Learn about the new I&O operating model and how to achieve better alignment with the business through improved organization design.
Digital business will drive a convergence of physical and digital, changing the shape of infrastructure and creating new business moments. Immersive IoT technology and augmented reality will push real-time decision-making and intelligence closer to the people and things at the edge. Cloud computing has already changed infrastructure and operations — the next wave of change is edge computing.
I&O leaders have to be active contributors toward their organizations’ digital success in delivering growth by helping scale digital initiatives throughout their enterprise. Infrastructure and operations leaders have to do so primarily by better aligning their capabilities with the business, by delivering improved quality and by lowering costs.
Although often separate, NetOps and SecOps teams share the common goal of maintaining secure, high-performance network infrastructures. Infrastructure and operations leaders can leverage shared data and tools to optimize budgets, avoid duplication of effort and improve the end user's experience. This session will discuss how to strengthen cross-functional communications strategies and improve tool-set use by sharing the IT Operation's team's skill sets with the Security Operations team (and vice versa).
This session takes a look at the latest Magic Quadrant covering hyperscale public cloud providers, understanding significant changes in market trends.
Organizations using public cloud services often wonder if public cloud services will be less expensive than hosting applications in their data center. Many exceed cloud budget expectations and struggle to establish financial management procedures to continuously monitor cloud spending. Join this session to learn how to evaluate public cloud costs and implement best practices to avoid overspending.
I&O leaders are challenged to manage private, public and multicloud services. This requires understanding of the different types of cloud management tools along with the trends and the problems that can be addressed. This session will present a framework that organizations can use to select the right tools to manage their cloud deployments.
During this session, 'IT Monitoring Insight to Support Your Businesses' High-Velocity Future — What Comes Next?' will be discussed at length.
In today’s increasingly interconnected world, insuring resilient infrastructure extends beyond the core data center. In this session, we will look at key points that have tripped up many companies when unexpected failures have occurred in seemingly innocuous or uncorrelated systems and how site reliability engineering practices can be used to help identify where the next big outage may cascade from.
This session will cover the top trends that will impact infrastructure and operations teams in 2019. These include both technology and industry trends that will have both short- and long-term impacts on I&O teams and IT infrastructures.
IT infrastructure and operations groups have traditionally organized around technology or functional silos. Learn how enterprises are organizing to successfully cope with the much more dynamic requirements inherent with digital business and support for DevOps.
This session will answer your questions regarding the current state of container technologies. Join us to ask questions about the technology, the vendors that make up the ecosystem and the associated products and the issues that enterprises are facing and learn how the technology and the industry will evolve over 3 to 5 years.
This presentation will outline ongoing changes in security operations/policy/organization, technical migrations, shifts in security mindsets, societal changes, and modifications in adversarial tactics that CISOs and their direct reports should monitor. Attendees will learn strategic changes that aren’t yet widely recognized but will have broad industry impact and significant potential for disruption. Through 2022, technologies related to these trends will reach a level of maturity that crosses a critical tipping point.
Public cloud services are growing at 19% CAGR through 2021. The cloud maturity model is driving business and IT leaders to make cloud as the underpinning of their cloud strategy and they are doing it with their wallets. Cloud spending is 20% of IT budgets as per Gartner’s cloud adoption survey. Top four hyper-scale cloud providers command 57% of the public cloud market according to Gartner's recent market-share study. This session will discuss the cloud growth trajectory across different cloud segments. We will go beyond the numbers and help IT leaders explore external factors, new technologies, best practices, and winners and losers within the cloud landscape.
This session will focus on the Magic Quadrant for IT Service Management Tools.
