How To Build A Business Analytics Business Case When The Future Is Cloudy
Feedback form is now closed.
We all know that IT spend is getting cloudier and cloudier these days, with software, infrastructure and platform spend moving to the cloud…but we are also all in situations where we need to make the best use of our organization's investment in existing applications and infrastructure! In this session, we will discuss practical advice for making the business case to move to cloud as appropriate for BI/business analytics and related software/infrastructure/platform solutions, with a detailed conversation around when cloud makes sense financially...and when it doesn't. We will discuss real-life case studies on companies that moved to the cloud; companies that chose (near-to-mid-term) to stay fully on-premise; and companies that made the business case for a hybrid environment for the foreseeable future. Learn how you can evaluate what makes sense for you and your organization!
