Tips to bring your cloud strategy to the next level

Today, organizations are challenged to keep up with the pace of development and innovation required for businesses to earn money and be successful. A significant gap has opened where the IT budget is flat, and mobile, social, big data, and the need for new sources of sustainable revenue, are forcing a change.

However, by exhibiting maturity in cloud, businesses gain significant benefits—in allowing their organizations to focus on strategy versus day-to-day operations, in faster time to provision new services, in reduced IT costs, and perhaps most importantly—in the ability to make more revenue.

In the following white paper, learn about various tips and strategies to help realize maturity in the cloud. Access now and answer some of the more pressing cloud-based questions like:

  • Where to find help when struggling with cloud
  • How to advance your cloud strategies
  • Where are the most common pain points in cloud strategies
  • And much more.

  • Build a robust, trustworthy mainframe cloud to improve IT service

    Today’s enterprise workloads require highly reliable and secure platforms to meet demanding service levels, hence why mainframes are still actively used in data centers of all sorts. And, when you consider that cloud computing is increasingly used to improve IT responsiveness and decrease costs, mainframes are more relevant than ever, as they serve as a platform for building robust, trusted clouds.

    In this resource, you'll explore several distinct advantages of building a cloud using a mainframe, including improved:

    • Performance and reliability
    • Security
    • Cost-savings
    • And more

    Read on to discover the benefits of a mainframe cloud, detailed use cases, and more.

  • Cloud is finally growing up: Hyped expectations vs. reality

    In less than a decade, the cloud has gone from a distant vision to the mainstream of business technology. More and more companies are moving core functions into the cloud, and many now have several years of experience with the opportunities and challenges that accompany this transformation.

    But in the beginning, hype ruled the cloud and caused many businesses to seek out opportunities that couldn’t even exist, making their journey to effective use long, arduous, and fruitless in some cases. Thankfully, cloud is growing up and so are the realistic expectations that go along.

    In the following white paper, learn how businesses are maturing with their cloud use and expectations. Read on now and see how these businesses are now leveraging cloud realistically and are making once elusive goals a tangible reality.
