9:00am-10:00am CDT: Digital Transformation: How Business & IT Should Think About Cloud Migration

 

 

Dr. David G. Rettig, C.E.O, Synoptus

 

 

Digital transformation is changing how organizations in every industry approach their business strategy, serving as the foundation of their technology initiatives. Key among this includes cloud adoption, which is not just about IT savings, but where organizations are leveraging new ways of doing business for competitive advantage.

 

In this session, attendees will learn how IT:

  • can take a leadership role with the business

10:30am-11:30am CDT: Securing Your Cloud In The Age of Hybrid Workplaces and SASE

 

David Ginsburg, VP, Product and Solutions Marketing, Aryaka

 

 

Two trends top-of-mind for CIOs and their teams are the need for effective regionally-based access to the different public cloud platforms and SaaS applications, sometimes termed Software-Defined Cloud Interconnect, as well as how to secure this connectivity whether an employee is on-premises or remote. This second trend is where the Secure Access Service Edge, or SASE, comes into play. In this talk, we look at how to best architect a SASE deployment to support these connectivity requirements in a secure, scalable, and manageable way. We also look at the advantages of consuming this as part of a managed service vs going at it alone.

Topics will also include:

• Is SASE right for me, and how to I get started? Why now?
• How can I integrate SASE with my on-premises security and preserve my existing investment?
• The role of Services PoPs in enabling SASE.
• What are the most important SASE use cases?

11:30am-12:30pm CDT: Untangle the Mess: Streamlining Hybrid Cloud Data Mobility

 

Chris Muro, Principal Solutions Architect, PacketFabric

 

Envision this. You need to move volumetric data between cloud provider A and cloud provider B for an important, six month analytics initiative, but you run smack into high friction realities:

High egress charges
A troubling choice between Internet privacy, security and performance risks and long telecom provisioning times plus infeasible contract terms
Complex multi-vendor governance issues and overhead

Join PacketFabric Principal Solutions Architect Chris Muro for an educational webinar where you’ll learn how to overcome these challenges with a connected cloud core architecture blueprint that will help you:

 

*Reduce costs
*Gain the performance you need to get data where it can be useful, faster
*Simplify your vendor ecosystem
*Deliver better application performance and user experience
*Showcase IT innovation

1:30pm-2:30pm CDT: Cloud Migration Could Be Your Dress Rehearsal for IT Disaster Recovery

 


Annur Sumar, CTO, Cloud Unity
Humza Yasin, Senior Managing Director, Dallas College

 

Day-to-day threats can destroy data and ruin a business. That’s why it is critical for all businesses to have a current, active disaster recovery (DR) plan. If you’ve completed a cloud migration project, perhaps it was your dress rehearsal and your chance to see how well prepared you really are.

 

In this session, attendees will learn to adapt their BC/DR plans to support Cloud Migration.

 

Areas that will be covered include:

  • Server operations failover and failback
  • Production application-specific operations failover and failback
  • Production database operations failover and failback
  • Production workload failover and failback
  • Workload onboarding into public cloud
  • Software and data dependency discovery and mapping
  • Critical path analysis of recovery and continuity workflows
  • Production data consistency and integrity
