As-a service

The as-a-Service model is one of the most successful and widely used developments in business technology of the past decade. It gives you more flexibility than ever and immediate access to the latest innovations. But it has its drawbacks too. Many firms struggle with cloud bloat, unpredictable overspend, a lack of control and persistent security worries. In this theme we’ll be looking at how the as-a-Service model is evolving, trends in strategy and management techniques that can help you stay on top of your many subscriptions.

Sustainable Cloud

Cloud data centres are responsible for around 0.5% of global CO2 emissions – that’s roughly equivalent to The Netherlands’ carbon footprint. Public cloud providers are responsible for a large share of this, and are under pressure to reduce emissions – but their customers also share some responsibility. These sessions will explore innovations that are helping make cloud data centres more sustainable. We’ll also look at how cloud customers can account for the carbon footprint of their cloud usage and methods for reducing their environmental impact.

Hybrid & Multi Cloud

There’s never been more flexibility when it comes to setting up your ideal corporate IT environment. Most organisations are opting for a blend of clouds from different vendors, as well as some on-prem and perhaps their own private cloud too. This flexibility allows you to build your own highly personalised infrastructure. But it does have the drawback of being complex to manage. In these sessions, we’ll be looking at how to get the balance right when it comes to connecting platforms, ensuring a smooth flow of information and choosing technologies to bridge the gap between clouds and on-prem.
