Published on

Hosted by Jessica Roland (SDL) with panelists: Mimi Hills (VMWare), David Snider (LinkedIn) and Melissa Biggs (Informatica).

So you have your localization tools and data in a private, public or hybrid Cloud. Great! But how “Cloud” are you, really? Do you have your people working at the speed of Cloud? If you don’t, does it matter if you have all the Cloud infrastructure/systems in place? And which is more important, speed of Cloud or ease of Cloud? Our panel of expert leaders has seen the full-spectrum journey to the Cloud and will share their thoughts on what it takes to really leverage this oh-so-popular model…and why.
