How to accelerate digital transformation with a cloud centre of excellence

28th May 2020 | 4:00pm - 5:00pm BST | 1 hour
How can businesses optimise 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 organisations now run workloads in multiple clouds.

To meet this growing complexity, best-in-class IT departments are creating cloud centres 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 Tom Axbey, GM at CloudHealth by VMware, as he 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 centre of excellence: what worked, what didn’t, and what they would do differently if given the chance.

Discussion Topics

Cloud centre of excellence: does successful transformation demand a new organisational unit to better manage areas like spend, security and governance?
"All finance sees is a bill": who does own the cloud programme, and who should?
The future of your cloud: from planned migration to multi-cloud - what are the hotspots and how are they best navigated?
