Cloud platforms are increasingly a viable option for a growing set of enterprise workloads. Business-aligned developers are aggressively looking to public cloud platforms to find the tools and infrastructure they need to build and deploy new elastic applications and to extend legacy applications. They have come to expect speed, choice, reliability, and transparent pricing. Meanwhile, nearly half of enterprise IT shops claim to be building a private cloud in 2013. The future enterprise IT infrastructure will therefore be a hybrid mix of public and private clouds, but who will manage it?

I&O pros will face new challenges trying to deliver consistent levels of agility, performance, availability, and user experience across a range of enterprise cloud services. To meet them, you need to understand what matters most to cloud users, how cloud management differs from traditional data center management, and what you can learn from the way public clouds are managed. This webinar outlines the cloud management capabilities you should master to rise to the challenge.

In this webinar, we review how different expectations and use cases in the cloud often lead to misunderstandings among cloud users and cloud operators.


  • How Cloud Management Differs From Traditional Data Center Management
  • How To Build On Your Existing IT Infrastructure Management Skills To Operate A Successful Cloud
  • Techniques For Implementing Cloud Monitoring, Governance, And Performance Management Processes
  • Organizational And Process Implications Of Extending Your IT Infrastructure To Include Public, Private, And Hybrid Clouds

Vendors mentioned: Amazon Web Services, BMC Software, CA Technologies, Enstratius, Microsoft, RightScale, ServiceMesh, VMware, and other management tool vendors.
