10th November 2020 | 12:00pm EST | 1 hour
How can businesses optimize their infrastructure and harness the power of the public cloud to unleash innovation?

Join a select group of senior leaders on this webinar discussion as we dedicate 60 minutes to answering one of the most valuable questions in business today…

As customer and user expectations continue to rise, companies are increasingly adopting multiple clouds and multiple tools/services for containers, microservices and serverless computing deployments to help meet business demand for smarter, faster, more responsive services. Recent research from Forrester suggests 93 percent of organizations now run workloads in multiple clouds.

To meet this growing complexity, best-in-class IT departments are creating cloud centers of excellence (CCOE) and evolving to everything-as-a-service (XaaS) IT delivery models to be more agile, and to manage cloud cost and security proactively.

But what does good look like on that journey? And what are the pitfalls to avoid when creating a CCOE? Join this webinar session to discuss how business leaders can address the complexity challenge, share strategies for balancing speed with control in the public cloud, and discover how to measure the ROI of your cloud deployment while also saving on cost.

Join Rachel Dines Chairwoman of Customer Advisory Board & Senior Director, Product Marketing at CloudHealth by VMware, as she introduces some of the emerging trends in the adoption of multiple public clouds, including: how to increase public cloud workloads, manage cloud cost, improve cloud security and implement a security governance program, and accelerate digital transformation.

Our panel of experts will discuss their own experiences implementing a cloud center of excellence: what worked, what didn’t, and what they would do differently if given the chance.
