Find the Most Secure Cloud Platform for Your Apps
Security issues pose a nearly existential threat to the digital economy, and today's businesses are taking a hard look - or a hard second or third look - at the security around their critical assets. In this environment, it's natural to ask: What's the most secure cloud platform? The answer is: it depends. This lively discussion helps you understand which factors determine the relative security of a given platform - cloud type, capability profile, etc. - key to optimizing your own security posture and avoiding a potentially catastrophic exploitation.

04:20 PM - 05:00 PM
Deliver a Comprehensive Cloud Business Case
Before your digital transformation initiative can even get off the ground, you need to be able to demonstrate how the investment will return substantial value. But a truly compelling business case can't stop at just capital expenditure (CapEx) and operating expense (OpEx). It also needs to account for and attempt to quantify the value of the many "soft benefits" of cloud transformation, such as accelerated time to market, improved developer productivity and decreased provisioning time. We'll review what a comprehensive cloud business case looks like, including examples of TCO analyses for some of our customers.
