The shift in the modern business now revolves around a new IT concept - the digital transformation. It's a process that's taken "analog" organizations into the cloud and digital age. Today, companies are leveraging the power of their data center and combining the power of cloud to achieve next-generation business solutions. But what does that really mean? And, how can organizations actually implement a journey into this Hybrid IT space?

Here's the good news - the path to cloud and digitization begins by enabling a Hybrid IT model and creating a business which can support it. For example, platforms like AzureStack are designed to help organizations extend their data center platform into a cloud ecosystem. But, you must also understand how your data center can help enable this type of extension.

This helps organizations become a part of the digital economy by responding faster to market demands. Furthermore, when you combine data center and AzureStack platforms - you create a more agile infrastructure, supporting new types of user use-cases.

In this webinar, we'll clearly define the cloud and digital transformation process; and show you how a Hybrid IT model enables a path into the digital landscape. Furthermore, we'll discuss how to connect powerful data center ecosystems with cloud-ready platforms like AzureStack. Specifically, we'll cover:

  • Defining "Digitization" and the modern market.
  • Understanding hybrid cloud, digital users, and the workplace.
  • Leveraging data center technologies and extending into cloud - AzureStack.
  • The technologies which make Hybrid IT and digitization possible: Cloud, Data Center, Automation!
  • How to align hybrid cloud, your data center, and modern use-cases
  • Best practices when embarking on a digital transformation journey
