IC3 spoke with an IT director at a regional hospital who is coming to IC3 to learn best practices and kick start public cloud initiatives at his company. He’s all about quick wins with disaster recovery, storage and archiving. Like other IT managers, he sees the vision for IT automation in the cloud, but doesn’t know how to get there.
This is the recurring pattern we see with enterprise IT. Some are waiting for permission. Some are waiting to be asked. Some are waiting for their enterprise vendors to tell them what to do. But nearly everyone see IT in the cloud as inevitable. The industry is at a tipping point and the catalyst is training and transparency.
The only question is how fast this will happen. That’s why we’ve gathered the world’s best enterprise IT and cloud computing trainers, curriculum and hands-on labs for a 2-day train up designed to accelerate developers’ and IT managers’ automation of IT in the cloud. Maybe our colleague in healthcare starts with DR or archiving, but soon he’s using advanced configuration management tools and running the cloud like a boss. That’s our vision.
