The business benefits of moving to the cloud are well documented. In addition to the direct financial benefits including reduced capex, opex and headcount, there are other business advantages such as agility and efficiency. Because of these key benefits, IT leaders no longer see deploying cloud technology as a choice. In fact, in a recent study by Ericsson ConsumerLab called “Work in the Cloud”, they expressed fear of being left behind by not adopting it. In that study 52 percent of IT decision makers say they plan to accelerate cloud implementation during the next 3 years.

So the key question about migrating to the cloud is not “if”, but “when” and “how”. The first step in that process is to determine which applications should remain in your data center, which ones should move to the private cloud, and which ones should move to the public cloud. The second step in that process is determining whether your data and applications are cloud ready. Companies need to modernize their data and applications so they are written in contemporary and compatible code that is usable in a cloud environment. Next, they need to perform the actual movement of those applications from legacy systems over to the cloud in an organized and efficient process. And finally, they need to be able to make sure their applications and data are safe in the cloud. More than traditional security, companies need to be certain that they have the best policies and governance tools to ensure the integrity of their cloud data and applications even down to the micro-services and container level.

Join us to learn about the best ways to ensure the migration of your applications and data to the cloud goes as smoothly as possible. We’ll be discussing tips, tools and best practices that have been proven to make certain your data and applications are modernized, migrated smoothly and are secure.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
