Professional Grade Cloud for your Hybrid IT Needs (ENT106) | AWS re:Invent 2013


Published on

"(Presented by BMC Software) Like most companies, yours is probably building both an internal, flexible IT environment and leveraging the power of Amazon Web Services. Each plays a key role in the IT footprint, and together they offer unparalleled flexibility, efficiency, and the agility to meet changing business needs. You may be starting small or moving quickly to address a range of business needs, geographies, or users. As you do, consider the role of an integrated, holistic management model to your enterprise.
This session will introduce the key qualities of integrated management, built to address the hybrid use cases of AWS, on-premises converged fabrics, advanced service catalogs, multi–data center deployments, and, ultimately, IT transformation using the cloud. You've likely already dabbled in—or even mastered—the basics of the cloud. Now learn from two case studies what it takes to reach the next level and lead your company to success with hybrid IT including AWS."
