Moving data and analytics to the cloud – insights, discussions, reflections
Free virtual roundtable October 19, 09.00-10.00 CET
Join a close group of CIO colleagues to discuss and explore what analytics workloads work best in the cloud, and how to craft a strategy that supports a cloud-only or a hybrid-cloud model depending on business needs.
How can you create a powerful analytics program that supports innovation and the establishment of a decisioning culture throughout your organization?
Topics to be discussed include:
• The pros and cons with on-premise solutions and cloud solutions
• Data privacy concerns – how can solutions be secure and still easy to manage
• Single cloud or multi cloud? Which is the best strategy?
• Cloud vendor comparison – finding the right solution for the right challenge
This is an exclusive event giving you as a CIO, CDO, CAO, or in another role responsible for the company’s cloud strategy, the opportunity to discuss, reflect and gain new insights together with a small group of peers. A moment to share your experiences, learn from others and get your questions answered.
Moderating the roundtable will be Magnus Aschan, founder of Teknikministeriet and editor-in-chief at Warp News.
The most important thing is to have a cloud strategy. Far from everybody has one today”
Cloud strategies have many components, what would you say should be prioritised?
“The most important thing is to have a cloud strategy. Far from everybody has one today. The strategy is crucial for your organization to use cloud services in the best possible and safest way. It is essential that many collaborate to develop it, that it is based on business benefits and best practices for IT operating models. The strategy becomes a common framework and also takes into account the uniqueness within your particular organization. Everyone is different, so what is the most prioritized part of the strategy differs”, says Magnus Aschan.
Will you adress cyber security issues as well?
“Security and risk analysis are fundamental regardless of how we operate IT, including cloud services. Today, most organizations have some form of hybrid IT operations. It can be a bit messy, which means a more complex risk analysis. But that makes it even more critical to do thoroughly. In areas where the benefits are great and the risks are small, public cloud services are attractive, but there are also many examples where it is the opposite, and then the choice of IT operation changes. Risk and security decide the outcome”, he says.
This roundtable is free, digital and invite-only – for CIOs, CDOs, CAOs, Heads of IT, VPs of IT, IT Directors and people with similar roles at companies outside the IT vendor sector.
