Many organizations have a cloud-first or cloud-only strategy, but not everything can be transitioned overnight. With CIOs being laser-focused on driving revenue generation and business innovation, many organizations are moving towards the cloud, multiple clouds in fact. Concurrently, these organisations are still operating Data Centres, combining two of their biggest concerns: Cloud & Cost. This means they are in transition with costs arising from both environments, which leads to decentralised control and overprovisioning of resources.
This increases the complexity and leads to unexpected costs, waste, as well as increased monitoring happening through different toolsets but with no observability. Hence, it is time to take back control with IT Operations Management by recapturing and redirecting cloud-funding that's not being spent wisely. Here is a 3-step approach for optimising your cloud operations :
Taming your cloud costs first with FinOps that helps reducing waste, freeing up budget and funding incremental innovation.
Implementing AIOPs by adding observability, boosting service performance and increasing staff productivity.
Automating vulnerability management to quickly address known vulnerabilities & exposures, thus reducing the security and compliance risks across cloud services.
The benefit of adopting this approach would be to unlock incremental funding, which might be used for innovation. This will also provide key stakeholders Global observability, Faster insights and Efficient resolutions, to improve ITOps performance.
Session 2: Acceleration to the Cloud - Guide to Data Usability & Privacy Compliance
Organisations are adopting cloud-first strategies quickly to extend their computing power and cloud storage, for collaboration and data science needs. To reduce risks, many leverage multi or hybrid cloud approaches, to spread their assets across multi-platforms. To do so effectively, they must consider the data migration path to these cloud storages or big data in the cloud. How do you de-risk or de-sensitise your data to meet the goals of your organisations’ cloud strategy, to harvest business intelligence from your data analytics?
Let us explore and discuss about things no one tells you during data migration to the cloud. Whether you’re in planning, early adopter or advanced stages of optimising your cloud adoption, we will discuss the prevailing concerns such as challenges of junk or unreliable data, duplicated sources. Importantly for business growth, learn how persistent and platform-agnostic data protection can:
Help organisations protect data throughout its lifecycle including after landing in cloud
Enable protected data in cloud for conducting analytics
Optimise costs of data in cloud
Manage privacy and compliance
