Cloud Expo Silicon Valley: An Executive View on Cloud Service Brokers

The way organizations are consuming IT services is evolving, driven by the cloud and mobile era. Cloud enables new IT service delivery models. This represents a disruptive change for both business and IT, but with this comes increased complexities and expanded management and integration scope. Leveraging the cloud requires more than just technology migration. It requires a new approach for designing, building and operating IT solutions in the new cloud service delivery model. This, in turn, requires a common methodology across multiple cloud providers and internal infrastructure, along with a centralized approach to unify provisioning, procurement, metering and control. Our cloud workshop will helps organizations get started in the cloud with the right strategy, methodology and a proven tactical approach to enable the business value of cloud.
In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Chad M. Lawler, Director of Consulting, Cloud Computing at Hitachi Consulting, will explore the aggregation integration, customization, and automation of cloud solutions design, architecture, provisioning, procurement, deployment, management and governance in the cloud service broker model. Attendees will receive an overview of how innovative cloud brokerage technologies are helping organizations streamline cloud sourcing, procurement, on-boarding, billing and use of different cloud services for cost savings, centralized management and increased governance control.
