From adoption to optimization: navigating the complexities of cloud modernization

15 February 2024, Europe 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm CEST

How are you improving business performance across increasingly complex hybrid cloud environments?

Most companies today operate in the cloud, whether through a public or private cloud, on-premises or some combination. In fact, over the past decade, cloud computing has gained nearly universal adoption – with 87% of enterprises having a multi-cloud strategy in place or underway, according to Cloud Data Insights.

But as strategies have matured, companies have entered a period of rebalancing workloads across cloud services and moving some cloud-based workloads back on-premises. Hybrid cloud applications are becoming increasingly critical, which enables an organization to scale computing resources and limit the huge cost of managing spikes in demand.

Join Hitachi Vantara and a select group of industry executives in this Meet the Boss roundtable as we explore the concept of true cloud application modernization, and how organizations can build, operate and optimize business-changing applications with limited resources.
