Forrester's Forum For Technology Management Leaders


  • 02:50 PM - 03:30 PM

    Shifting Your Infrastructure Into The Cloud

    Speed, agility, and cost are all forcing I&O organizations to rethink their infrastructure strategies. Do you know what your customers want? Customers are demanding new ways to deliver applications, data, and services — and it's not on yesterday’s technology infrastructure. Instead, learn:

    • How effective cloud leaders deliver services and what you can learn.
    • How to use blueprints and automation to deliver cloud services to your customers.
    • How to build a business case for private, public and hybrid cloud infrastructure.
