The Role of Hybrid Cloud in Driving the Future State of Business
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation.
This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends.
Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new.
Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid.
This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
