Panel Discussion Overview
In software-defined environments, both risks and rewards are high. Success requires agreed-upon cloud-first design principles, improved DevOps processes, alignment between IT and business, advanced engineering for container-based design, application restacking, secure interfaces and secure access. New configurations–like thick-client devices running local decision logic supported by cloud-based compute engines—require new ways of architecting, operating, and managing.
Chaired by industry-leading research firm Nemertes Research, this panel helps you find out from your Wall Street peers and technology solution providers how:
- Business users can achieve dynamic demand management, resiliency and faster change rates
- IT providers can integrate processes across development, operations and third-party product teams on standard cloud and container deployment patterns
- Companies overall can best leverage cloud, containers, and virtual infrastructure to enable their digital transformations
- Unlocking the value of data by leveraging Cloud Storage solutions to increase Data Lakes, lower Archive data costs and developing next generation Object storage with Cloud compute
