Putting all your eggs in one cloud basket is risky, because clouds are not immune to denials of service, nor are they immune to going out of business. Using multiple clouds with multiple vendors is a good idea, but managing it can be tricky. In this session, we'll discuss best practices and provide tips and advice to help you decide how best to manage your cloud data and your vendor relationships.
As the cloud matures, companies will start using it differently, moving from static, high-volume tasks such as ERP or storage to a true integration with the workflow of the business. Improved APIs, maximized scaling, "big memory" and enhanced use of big data will make the cloud more useful and efficient for businesses.
In order to optimize your utilization of cloud computing, you need to be able to deliver reliability and scalability while managing workload spikes for a range of applications. Leveraging the cloud for prioritizing traffic, scaling your applications' workloads, and streamlining connections between data centers can help you realize those performance goals.
In this session, we'll discuss how to enter the next phase of cloud computing, using cloud services and capabilities to deliver business value across a wide range of applications, including communications and collaboration.
Open source technology is gaining ground throughout IT and especially in operating systems and databases. Open source software drives efficiency and innovation, but affects your application stacks and introduces new challenges to keeping them highly available and performing. Find out about the hottest open source options and how they can help your organization achieve better uptime and performance levels. We'll also explore the tradeoffs of using open source software, how to evaluate and assess the available types, and the potential effects on your applications and infrastructure.
The operational models and technologies used to manage and operate IT on a day-to-day basis are dramatically changing. Open, programmable systems and devices are becoming the norm, allowing integration with DevOps automation tools.
In this session, we'll discuss ways organizations and individuals can use DevOps tools and concepts to implement automation and simplify IT operations, the emergence of a “superpattern” in DevOps and how you can apply these processes to automation.
Legacy applications are costing your organization money and standing in the way of innovation. On average, 70% of IT budget is absorbed by supporting current infrastructure and applications, leaving little for disruptive technologies that can improve your business.

In this session we'll break down the regulatory and legal compliance issues to be aware of, help you identify contract pitfalls to avoid, and give you the guidance you need to make sure you're prepared next time your organization needs to fulfill an E-Discovery request.
