Cloud has become a popular tool, representing a much larger problem domain that encompasses:

Consumerization of IT via smartphones and tablets
Knowledge of smartest and best solutions available to the enterprise at a reasonable cost
Inclusive scale, performance and availability for enterprise applications at no additional cost
Value-based products and services with nominal cost for change

These four factors drive business agility, which is the number one reason businesses are considering cloud according to Gartner Group. Still, for many, cloud represents an intangible entity requiring tangible examples to bring the value proposition to life.

Learn how you can:
Leverage emerging IT capabilities afforded by cloud, PaaS and DevOps automation
Demonstrate the speed and ease with which you can deploy modern cloud applications across multiple cloud service providers
Drive agility within your organization with cloud solutions
