Cloud computing has been around as a term for such a long time that you might be forgiven for wondering what else there is to learn about it. Yet the concept of cloud computing is constantly evolving – where once there was a binary private or public cloud choice, now the conversation has moved on to how enterprises manage a hybrid of environments, covering private, public and on-premise services.
The reason for this shift, and the complex sprawl of multiple clouds, is organisations’ drive to have the right infrastructures to underpin their digital transformation. Different apps require different environments to operate at maximum efficiency.
According to research by Dell EMC, companies that aggressively adopt hybrid cloud are three times more likely than non-adopters to be approaching their digital business and infrastructure readiness goals.
The result is a mash of different clouds, delivered by multiple vendors, requiring multiple skillsets and approaches. It’s a headache, but one that needs to be overcome for IT to help the business transform and, ultimately, grow in the digital era.
We want to help IT professionals make the most of their cloud environments. That’s why this year’s VMworld Europe contains one of the most comprehensive cloud tracks we’ve ever offered on record.
With over 100 panels, breakouts, keynotes and sessions dedicated to private, public and hybrid cloud, managing cloud, cloud-native apps and cloud services, it promises to be an event that will help any IT professional, no matter what their experience, get a deeper understanding of how cloud computing can support their business goals.
