Smoothing the path to frictionless IT

Weds 21st October 2015, 4:00pm – 7:00pm

St Mary Moorfields, 4-5 Eldon St, EC2M 7LS

Expert Speakers ◊ Informed Debate ◊ Networking

Cloud computing is typical of a new form of frictionless IT that’s rapid, agile and accessible. This is transforming the way businesses use computing. Join us at EuroCloud UK’s October meeting for a lively discussion of the latest trends and the role of cloud providers in delivering frictionless IT. We have four top industry speakers who will each bring their unique insights on this trending topic:

Towards a frictionless IT (whether you like it or not)

Alessandro Perilli, GM Cloud Management Strategy, Red Hat

The enterprise has to move from traditional Frustrating IT to modern Frictionless IT, whose characteristics are ease of use, speed and integration. How can we smooth this transition? (read more about frictionless IT)

How DevOps culture changes enterprise IT

Mandi Walls, technical practice manager, Chef Software

Continuous delivery, infrastructure-as-code and devops are tools to enable rapid, agile delivery of cutting-edge IT. How are enterprises adapting to these new techniques?

How cloud providers help manage change

David McLeman, CEO, Ancoris

As-a-service delivery of IT and applications isn’t just a technology proposition – it transforms the culture of how IT is consumed and changes the relationship between business and IT within an organization. How do providers help manage this change?

Containerization and the cloud provider

Anna Al-Damluji, sales and support manager, ElasticHosts

How containerization brings new pricing and delivery models for delivering IT with less friction, and the impact on cloud providers

Debate moderated by EuroCloud UK chair Phil Wainewright, co-founder, diginomica

Hear from our panel of expert speakers from leading industry vendors, join in the debate and experience EuroCloud's legendary network effect. As usual each speaker will have 10 minutes, but then join together for a panel question and answer session before we break for drinks, food and networking.

If you are a cloud provider selling into the business and enterprise market, this event is a must. In just a couple of hours you'll gain invaluable insights on this key issue and have the chance to network and talk with the great, the good, the best of UK Cloud in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. 

Our venue is conveniently located a short walk from either Moorgate or Liverpool Street stations. 

Entrance is by prior registration only, and free to EuroCloud members. Non-members are made very welcome - all our members started first by coming to one of our meetings to take a look and assess the value we provide.
