Features insights from renowned analyst James Staten of independent research firm
BURLINGTON, Mass., Feb. 27 — DynamicOps, pioneer of the Operations Virtualization platform that enables unified cloud automation and management, today announced that it is hosting a seminar and a webcast featuring James Staten, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc. The "Fastest Path to Cloud" seminar on February 29, 2012, and the webcast on March 15, 2012, will focus on how to quickly implement private/hybrid clouds that deliver real value.
"Many businesses find that cloud deployments take much more time and money than they had planned, but it doesn't have to be that way. We've seen a lot of customers deploy large-scale, highly personalized cloud environments at just a fraction of the typical cost and time," said Chad Jones, VP of Strategy and Product Management, DynamicOps. "We're very pleased to offer attendees the chance to hear insights about cloud best practices directly from Mr. Staten, one of the industry's foremost experts."
"We know that much of the infrastructure and operations (I&O) market is under pressure to leverage cloud computing. This pressure to get to cloud stems from myriad claims of greater time-to-market, efficiency, and cost savings – and there's some truth to these claims, as shown in the growing volume of enterprise case studies demonstrating these benefits to be true. But these gains are not universal, and there are more ways to get cloud wrong than there are paths to true benefit," wrote Staten in a recent Forrester report.
"Fastest Path to Cloud" will show attendees how to avoid the common cloud pitfalls. It will feature the following:
