How do integrated systems help accelerate the adoption of cloud in an IT environment?
Last week, we held the first Tweet Chat in a series of four for July. The topic revolved around the costs and benefits of Integrated Systems and those who joined the chat were greeted with a deeply informative and passionate discussion. Check out our recap of the event that features the chat questions and top participant answers.
Join our expert panel for the next Tweet Chat hosted by IBM on “Accelerating the Adoption of Cloud,” where we’ll discuss how expert integrated systems can help organizations get to a cloud service model ,with all of the value that it brings, on a much more rapid timeline. The Tweet Chat will take place on Wednesday, July 18 from 1:00-2:00 pm EDT (5-6pm GMT) and moderated by Larry Carvalho, Cloud Computing Analyst & Advisory Services, STEM Advocate, and entrepreneur at RobustCloud. To join the conversation, please follow and use the hashtag #ExpertSysChat. The bios of the panelists are included at the bottom of this post.
According to IDC, 80 percent of new commercial enterprise apps will be deployed on cloud platforms, making the cloud more significant than ever. But with resources more strapped than ever, it’s become increasingly difficult for the IT department to equip its developers with the cloud environment that can be used to develop, test and ultimately support their applications. However, through the use of integrated systems that already contain cloud capabilities, IT departments can deliver the platforms and capabilities that will enable developers to deliver better applications with faster time to market. Here’s an example of some of the important industry questions being addressed during the chat:
- How can expert integrated systems and cloud technology help organizations deliver on products and services faster?
- How can enterprises accelerate cloud implementation and adoption? How can they integrate and allocate resources while keeping deployments secure?
- How can integrated systems containing cloud computing capabilities help developers create better applications and enable faster time to market?
Take advantage of this opportunity to meet influential integrated systems experts in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. It’s easy to join the conversation using Twitter – simply follow and use the hashtag #ExpertSysChat on the day of the event to participate.
