5 Reasons You Are Not Ready for the Cloud - Gartner IT Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit, Berlin Germany

Enterprises are challenged with driving revenue and reducing risk, while also tasked with increasing innovation. The promise of the cloud and new technologies (for example, containers and microservices) enable unparalleled speed and flexibility; however, this can introduce serious risk. Mark Thiele will discuss how organizations can securely leverage modern IT methods with complete confidence and trust.
Apcera provides enterprises with the software and technology needed to deliver trust and drive innovation in today's dynamic cloud environment. Apcera takes a policy-first approach and delivers a significant increase in agility, security and speed across any IT infrastructure. Apcera’s platform allows IT teams and developers alike to safely deploy, orchestrate and govern any imaginable workload on premises or in any cloud—public or private—in a friction-free and trusted fashion.

“In the face of complexity, taking a policy-first approach will give organizations more trust in their cloud infrastructure,” Mark Thiele explained. “Customers today want to be able to securely deploy Docker workloads and build applications using microservices architectures, without sacrificing innovation or time to market.”
