CIO to CIO: Building an Open Cloud

On demand

This webinar is the latest session in the Building an Open Cloud webinar series.

IT's value to the business, its ability to adapt to change, and its capability to deliver innovation will be determined by the cloud architecture decisions you make today.  Join Red Hat's CIO Lee Congdon for a c-level discussion of the key considerations and benefits of building an Open Cloud Architecture.

You'll learn:

  • the key Open Cloud decision criteria used by Lee Congdon and the Red Hat IT team when building and expanding Red Hat's internal cloud infrastructure.
  • how to manage diverse infrastructures under the same cloud architecture.
  • how to avoid creating new cloud silos that can limit the potential of the cloud for your enterprise.
Registrants will receive a link to the on-demand recording after the live event and a corresponding whitepaper for the
Building an Open Cloud webinar series.
