Journey to the Cloud
There has been lots of focus on how to migrate existing workloads and data centers to the cloud. But, if you’re only thinking about current work, you’re missing a huge opportunity.

Get a good cross-section of how to provision, test and launch in the cloud, and ways to integrate with your existing applications and data.
Every day there’s another news story about IoT, Blockchain, AI, Machine Learning – a whole host of new opportunities and new challenges. If you’re wondering what these technologies mean to your day, you’re not alone. In these sessions, we’ll help to dig through the buzzwords and get to a real definition of how these technologies work, and how they’re changing your day and your business.
