Vendor lock-in has always been a challenge for IT executives. Infrastructure as a service and custom service platforms compete, and since Cloud Computing has very limited standards in place, devising a strategy for multiple offerings can be difficult.
Chicago, IL (Vocus/PRWEB) April 18, 2011
CityTech, Inc., a national IT consultancy, will present “Considerations for a Vendor Agnostic Cloud Strategy” at the Technology Executives Club’s April 28th Cloud Computing Seminar. Senior Cloud Architect Christian Vozar, who manages CityTech’s rapidly growing Cloud Computing practice, leads the presentation at this half-day event in Chicago.
In this presentation, Vozar will explore how the enterprise can avoid vendor lock-in, leverage current virtualization investments, and take full advantage of the Cloud. Highlights will include: vendor service offerings and identifying pitfalls/deficiencies, high-level multi-vendor design considerations, how to build to fail, and employee training considerations.
"Vendor lock-in has always been a challenge for IT executives. Infrastructure as a service and custom service platforms compete, and since Cloud Computing has very limited standards in place, devising a strategy for multiple offerings can be difficult," says Vozar.
The April 28th seminar is the first in the Technology Executives Club’s two-part Cloud Computing seminar series and will focus on architecting the proper mix of internal, external and hybrid Clouds. Registration for the event, which takes place at the Union League Club in Chicago’s Loop, is open to both Club members and non-members.
