For technical and business leaders alike, modernizing operations is a key priority in today’s economy. However, complexities, compliance, and a lack of resources can plague modernization initiatives – particularly those involving cloud migrations. That’s why we’ve invited the cloud cost planning experts at Akasia, to provide insights during this session, on ways to tackle costly roadblocks.
With the average company having only moved 18% of its workloads to the cloud, our research shows that there continue to be misconceptions, roadblocks, and inefficiencies that impact operations and planning related to these migrations. This, combined with the fact that 76% of leaders say they’re moving applications to the cloud to improve the speed of IT service delivery, underscores the potential disconnect between Technical and Line of Business operations regarding the cloud.
Watch the event replay, which is ideal for both technical and business leaders. It will equip each of you with critical knowledge and insights, enhancing your collaboration to move your modernization initiatives related to the cloud forward faster.
