How Analytics Optimize Migration to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Other Public Clouds

The question of whether to transition enterprise applications to the cloud is a valid question in most organizations. Determining which applications should go and how to maintain control once they are there, however, is slowing down the journey to the cloud.

The sheer complexity of assessing fitness for the cloud and the right hosting model options, all while maintaining security, scalability and performance, creates anxiety and uncertainty around decisions. In addition, costs for public cloud use are spiraling out of control. Research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) shows an average of 50% in over-provisioned cloud and data center infrastructure. Moreover, it is not uncommon for applications to exceed their monthly Amazon or Microsoft cost estimates by more than 100%.

Join us for this webinar featuring Torsten Volk, Managing Research Director of Hybrid Cloud at EMA, and Andrew Hillier, CTO at CiRBA, to learn how to:

  • Assess how much of your infrastructure should go to the cloud and identify which enterprise apps are suitable
  • Avoid the common mistakes and reduce risk in the transformation to cloud
  • Determine which provider and hosting model is best for your workloads
  • Benefit from the different cost structures of Amazon, Azure, Softlayer, VMware and other clouds
  • Lower infrastructure, licensing and operations cost by up to 50%
  • Balance CAPEX and OPEX when making cloud deployment decisions
