Did you miss our recent webinar, “Harnessing Lightning: DevOps + ITOM for Secure & Compliant Hybrid Cloud Ops?” Simon Johnson, Senior VP of Client Services and Jay Keating, Senior VP of Cloud and Managed Services explain how to embrace, not resist, DevOps, the pivotal role of IT as the control plane for workload distribution, how to transform your IT with a next-gen IT Operations Transformation Framework, and much more.
