Three Ways to Prepare Your Business for the Cloud

This month we collaborated with IBM to present three ways that you can prepare your business for the cloud. There are so many options that are bombarding your inbox regarding this solution or that solution; however how do you know which options are right for you? In this presentation we discussed three different ways your business can take advantage of the cloud and the respective ways you can make decisions today to make the transition smoother. Here are the three components we discussed:

  • Private Cloud – What does this mean to you?
  • Public Cloud – How do you know which options are right for you?
  • Hosted Cloud Services – You are already using some of these today!


During the discussion we used some case study examples of what some companies are doing today to leverage each of these different Cloud offerings. We also discussed how most organizations have some hybrid of at least two of the three components above – what does that look like, what obstacles this may present to your organization and how to prepare today for a future migration when it makes sense for you.

Presented by our guest speaker from IBM, Robert McMullan.
