Everyone wants the rainbow - reduced IT costs, scalability, continuity, flexibility, manageability, and innovation

You Can't Get the Rainbow Without the Cloud

Reserve Your Seat for this Session ▸ Here

Everyone wants the rainbow - reduced IT costs, scalability, continuity, flexibility, manageability, and innovation. But in order to get to that collaboration rainbow, you need the cloud! In this presentation, we'll cover three areas:

First - the rainbow of benefits from cloud collaboration. There are many different reasons why more and more companies and institutions are moving to the cloud.  Benefits include: cost savings (reducing on-prem infrastructure, reducing data center foot print, reducing IT support costs), enabling growth (ensuring a highly available, highly scalable infrastructure), increasing employee access & engagement (by having collaboration tools that are usable and available globally regardless of location there will be an increased connectedness amongst teams and individuals that will help increase both efficiency and productivity.)

Second - clearing away the storm clouds of concern around privacy, security, and compliance. While a move to the cloud may help provide some of the benefits described, it's important to understand what some of the key concerns and things to consider when moving to the cloud.  Those three areas are privacy (how to ensure your content and user data is protected and ensure users are only able to view the content to which they are entitled), security (how to prevent malicious attacks and other intrusions aimed to compromise the system or steal data), and compliance (making sure you adhere to the IT regulations set forth by your industry or local government).  

Third - the simple steps for getting to the cloud - starting with choosing a buying model that bridges the path, understanding gateway technologies, and creating user experiences that accelerate the shift. We will walk through a two lane road map that shows both the technical path and the business strategy path.  For the technical path we will discuss what needs to be in place architecturally to move to the cloud, what role hybrid integrations that bridge on-prem with the cloud can play, and what is the full breadth of collaboration capabilities available in the cloud. For the business strategy path, we will discuss how to prepare your users and ensure that areas such as adoption and absorption of these capabilities are being addressed.

Speaker Bio:

Chris Palermo is a manager within Cisco's Global Collaboration Sales group where he serves a number of key roles. One of his primary roles revolves around helping collaboration sellers tell the enterprise story of meetings and team collaboration to their customers.  Palermo joined Cisco in 2010 to help create and drive the services around Cisco's social collaboration product at the time, WebEx Social.  Palermo helped shift the services within the group from being technology-centric to being more focused on the "people" and "process" sides of technology deployments. This shift in approach has resulted in the creation of high-value services that cater to the strategic and cultural areas that impact technology adoption & absorption in the enterprise. Palermo's areas of expertise within collaboration include business process redesign, asynchronous & synchronous collaboration tools, use cases, voice of the user/customer, time & motion studies, adoption & change management.

Prior to joining Cisco, Palermo spent twelve years with global management consulting firm, Accenture, where he was one of the founding members of their Portals, Content, and Collaboration group.  As an executive in that group, Palermo helped enterprise customers with their transition from the static Web 1.0 to the dynamic Web 2.0, with a focus on enterprise portals, enterprise content management, and collaboration tools.  He has continued this evolution at Cisco, where he now helps guide and promote the value of customers transitioning to the emergent world of virtual, continuous teamwork, driven by video meetings, messaging, file sharing, and white boarding.

CloudEXPODevOpsSUMMITDXWorldEXPO 2018 New York will be held November 12-13, 2018 in New York City.

Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.

A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
