Enterprise Strategies for Cloud-Aware Apps

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Enterprise IT needs more applications designed for cloud in order to take advantage of private cloud implementations and more efficiently use public cloud solutions.  Leveraging the unique benefits of the cloud requires a specialized approach to application architecture.  The right design enables business agility, massive scaling, ability to burst, and high resiliency.  Plus, it promotes resource efficiency, contributing to cost optimization.  The lack of cloud-aware applications hinders innovative hybrid cloud usages and, for the enterprise, is a major inhibitor of cloud adoption.  Attend this roundtable with experts from Intel IT, Liberty Mutual IT, Deutsche Telekom AG and HP to discuss principles of cloud-aware design, architectural patterns which maximize cloud, and enterprise strategies to promote cloud-aware behavior.


Speakers: Catherine Spence, Intel IT; Yih Leong Sun, Liberty Mutual IT; Gerd Prüßmann, Deutsche Telekom AG; Stephen Walli, HP
