Technology leaders are always looking for ways to design, build, and operate their environments more effectively. When looking at possible solutions, public cloud offerings are often considered. While there are many success stories, savvy leaders quickly become skeptical. Are public cloud offerings really more cost effective? Why are some workloads better or worse to operate in a public cloud? What factors should be considered when evaluating a given workload? And how much time and effort does it actually take to migrate?

Of course, those questions are just the tip of the iceberg. Many organizations also wonder about cloud availability and performance, security and compliance concerns, and how hybrid environments that include on-premise and public cloud workloads will affect operations.

Join us on April 24 for a panel discussion about the benefits and commons pitfalls of moving to the cloud and so much more. We’ll dive into the top business drivers, stages of cloud adoption, the migration process, application strategies, and answer your questions throughout.

Our industry-leading panelists will share stories about what they hear their customers trying to solve around cloud strategy and take time to answer your specific questions.

After the panel, all guests will be treated to a shopping experience with Charlotte Running Co. and given a $150 voucher. This event also includes food and drinks and a happy hour with plenty of time to shop and network with guests.
