Cloud Secrets Webinar Series: The Five Stages of Cloud Adoption – Benchmarking Your Org and Where to Go Next


Previously Recorded March 22, 2017 | 12:00PM – 1:00PM EST

Whether unsanctioned Shadow IT, or fully-governed hybrid cloud, enterprises adopt the public cloud in five discrete stages, each marked by tell-tale practices, challenges, and cost structures.

In the earliest stages, organizations struggle to understand the ever-evolving service catalogues offered by burgeoning cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and IBM Softlayer. Native and supplemental tooling requirements are foreign concepts, costs are accepted ad hoc, and little to no governance exists to slow spend down.

In the advanced stage, enterprises have accelerated speed of service delivery to nearly instantaneous provisioning delivered through Platform- and Container-as-a-Service (PaaS and CaaS) orchestration workflows, fully automated and governed by budgetary, performance and compliance requirements.

Join us for this first installation of the Turbonomic Cloud Journey Series as speakers Mor Cohen and Eric Wright usher you through the five stages of cloud adoption and help your organization benchmark where it is and where it’s going.

Our webinar will conclude with an interactive Q&A session, and all registered attendees will receive one (1) entry to Turbonomic’s Green Circle Community AWS re:Invent Sweepstakes – your very own chance to attend the new marquee event in cloud and data center!
