CanadianCIO Executive Roundtable
Making the Move to Hybrid Cloud – Lessons Learned 

Hybrid cloud and “IT as a service” are becoming the operating model of choice for a growing number of CIOs, each of which have discovered that a cloud environment has its own unique set of technical, organizational, and cultural challenges. Security, integration, privacy, SLAs and even governance models can be radically different in a cloud-based model.Join Jim Love, CIO and Chief Digital Officer of ITWC and featured guests for an engaging, open discussion in which participants explore and share real world experiences in areas such as:

  • Public, private and hybrid models — strengths and pitfalls of each
  • Achieving the ‘balance’ between which applications are kept on premise or moved to the public cloud
  • Managing private cloud and preparing for effective delivery of ITaaS
  • How to evaluate and manage a cloud provider — the new SLAs
  • Different paths to the cloud
  • Lessons learned, benefits gained and pitfalls encountered
  • How CIOs have addressed issues and challenges
  • Dealing with the business pressures and issues
  • New organizational skills required to move to and operate in the cloud
  • Preparing for tomorrow — how will cloud evolve?
As a thank you for attending, each attendee will receive a
$100 gift card to The Keg Steakhouse.
