Cloud Webinar Series Part 2: Design Cloud Services, Not Systems

You can migrate your virtualized environment to the cloud—but your cloud services will only be successful if they meet the needs of the business and are deployed in a repeatable, reliable way.


In part 2 of this series, you'll learn how to design cloud services that enable self-service deployment of IT resources and create unique advantages for your business.  We'll look at ways to simplify your computing environment and deploy processes so that the right things can be built the right way—easily and consistently. By the end of this webinar, you'll know how to:

  • Design cloud services that create competitive advantage
  • Specify and certify templates and their associated deployment policies
  • Enable one-touch self-service ordering using a service catalog
  • Create an integrated and repeatable approach for building and deploying workloads across multiple environments (physical, virtual, and cloud)

Registrants will receive a link to the on-demand recording after the live event and a corresponding whitepaper for part 2 of the From virtualization to cloud series. See additional webinars in this series.
