Historically, business processes were located only in private data centers where all the servers are behind firewalls. This traditional model is evolving. As organizations come to appreciate the cost savings that cloud solutions can provide, application developers are looking to a variety of hosting platforms, including SaaS, PaaS, and hybrid models.
But along with these cost advantages come challenges — including security, data privacy, regulatory compliance, access management, and auditing — that prevent companies from moving everything to the cloud. A hybrid cloud solution can address these challenges while delivering the cost savings that cloud provides.
Attend this webcast to learn how to optimize and control business process execution across hybrid environments. Hear IT industry analyst and consulting firm Enterprise Management Associates describe how it addresses its workload automation needs in a cloud environment.
Attend to understand:
• How big data and analytics is changing approaches, roles, and skills in the cloud era
• Business drivers for cloud solutions
• How to develop an effective hybrid cloud strategy
• Ways that automation enables the decoupling of workloads from physical resources
• How to smoothly transition from on-premise to cloud with ITSM tooling that helps manage end-to-end the applications, regardless of where they are hosted.
Register today to learn how to capitalize on the advantages that hybrid cloud offers for managing big data workloads.
