The cloud isn’t your only option – premises or hybrid solutions may even be the better path. In this session, a leading consultant with extensive experience in cloud/premises decision-making will present attendees with a quiz that explores the choices in detail and how best to evaluate each solution.

During the session, attendees will also get detailed advice on:
• The three prerequisites an enterprise needs to consider before making the cloud jump
• Financial considerations and impact of each deployment model
• The strengths and risks associated with premises and cloud solutions

Attendees will leave the session with personalized quiz results that provide insight into the impact of each solution and which one would be best for their enterprise.


* Determine what factors can deter a move to the cloud, and which situations are better suited for cloud deployments.
* Learn how to identify when a premises solution makes more sense.
* Understand the financial and technical considerations for each deployment method.
