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. Putting your new work in the cloud has significant advantages, but only if you can make it work with your existing on-prem environment. 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.

Emerging Technologies

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.

Multi-layered Security Planning

Security is a top concern for many organizations. However, many continue to segment their security strategy creating silos. Hear why your organizations should develop a larger vision for your organizations’ security strategy and how to implement it. Learn more about design strategies for managing employees, customers and partners.
