Is it possible to save money by migrating workloads to the Public Cloud?  At first glance, many would argue that there are no savings to be had.  Current IT hardware and data center space may be fully paid for along with software licensing which only incurs low maintenance charges.  Why would I risk disrupting my IT operations, along with my balance sheet, when there’s no cost savings to be had? 

However, you may be surprised to learn of some of the seldom considered IT costs that you’ve been incurring for years that can now be eliminated.  More significantly, business growth resulting from modernized systems in the Cloud will more than offset the costs of this new hosting platform. This webinar takes a closer look at the costs associated with operating in the Cloud, including a demonstration of a tool to help you quantify your costs and help formulate your Cloud plans.

Key takeaways:

  • Identify areas where your business can save money by moving to the Cloud

  • Use a proven tool to objectively identify whether the Cloud is right for you and your budget

Who should attend:

  • CIO/CTO's

  • IT Directors/Managers

  • Data Center Managers

  • Systems Software Managers

  • IT Architects
