Accelerating Cloud Transformation: Trends, Predictions & Case Studies
About the Webinar
Turbocharge your business transformation using cloud platforms in 2019. Public cloud adoption and spending are mainstream and growing at more than 35% per year, but only a small fraction of core business applications run in public or private cloud. In 2019, a major transformation of legacy apps using powerful container-based, cloud-native digital application platforms will take off.
Join the conversation between Rick Erickson, Chief Cloud Strategist at Agosto, Nathan Clevenger, Director Software R&D at Zebra Technologies, and guest speaker Dave Bartoletti, VP, Principal Analyst at Forrester. Get their firsthand insights on accelerating your cloud migration strategy to make the highest impact and improve competitive advantage while developing a holistic cloud governance strategy.
Bartoletti, the lead on Forrester’s cloud computing playbook team, will also share the true state of public, private, and multi-cloud adoption, the main enterprises cloud drivers and challenges, his cloud predictions for 2019, and how enterprises should get started right away to accelerate their own digital transformations using cloud platforms and the hottest emerging technologies.
