Can The Hybrid Cloud Really Work? Cobweb OnDemand Webinar
Commoditised IT services deployed as a public, private or hybrid
cloud solution are rapidly becoming a mainstream alternative to a
purely in-house deployment. For companies growing quickly and
requiring more management flexibility, this deployment model
represents a great alternative both financially and operationally,
yet there is always a concern that putting the control in the hands
of a cloud provider may present a risk.
Join our panel of industry experts - Dale Vile, CEO of the
independent analyst house Freeform Dynamics; Kim Richards, IT
Technical Manager of Stemcor; and Oliver Moazzezi, MVP at Cobweb
Solutions. They will all be sharing their experience, knowledge and
advice on the cloud services model, as well as some up-to-date
research to ensure you get the right balance.
