In today’s world of changing priorities, technologies and strategies, businesses are continuously facing the need to innovate and drive efficiencies into their business. As the computing paradigm shifts to using just in time resources, how does your organization leverage the ‘Cloud’ to reduce the cost of technical expenditures while taking products to market faster? Before you decide to leverage the ‘Cloud’ you need to answer the following questions: 1) is my company organizationally and technically prepared to move to the cloud? 2) which cloud services in the marketplace should I leverage and 3) how do I get there from here? Join us for this discussion as VMC Consulting’s Stephen Carn and Eric Mead will not only address these questions but will also demonstrate how you can leverage Cloud Brokerage Services when assessing, migrating and managing technologies in the cloud, and how to make the cloud work for your business.
