Play the Long Game in Cloud: Getting to Value Fast and Preserving Choice

On Demand

As the Cloud goes from mist to reality, customers need to be aware of the options and the real cost.

Join Red Hat and BMC Software experts as they discuss the options that customers have, when they build their public and private clouds?

Do you have to pick just one platform? What does it really cost to be successful?....are just a few of the many questions, which will be answered during the session. In the end, customers will realize they have a choice when it comes to building the cloud and it doesn’t have to break the bank.

Take a ways…

  • Can you only have one platform in your cloud
  • What should you think about when building your cloud
  • Does the cloud have to be expensive
  • What should be my “cloud management” strategy
  • The real cost and ROI for the cloud
