The Business of IT Transformation [Webinar]

Today, businesses of all sizes and from every industry are facing an increasing set of challenges.

Decision makers are being asked to do more with less — increase innovation and efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership. Others want to gain a competitive edge by harnessing data to learn more about their customers’ needs.

In many cases, business leaders know what outcomes they want to achieve, they just don’t know where to start. The word “cloud” has grown to encompass so many things, it’s hard to know how this technology can best be put to use.

Are you trying to grow your business in this ever-evolving market and feeling overwhelmed? You’re not alone.

Maybe you’ve been tasked with improving efficiency at your company, or you’re struggling to keep TCO down. Many business leaders have tried to take on these hurdles unsuccessfully, while others have leveraged the cloud to meet their toughest business transformation challenges head on.

With the right plan in place, businesses can rely on the cloud for lower infrastructure costs, faster, more efficient workflows and access to data storage and analytics tools to give them the edge they need.

If you’re interested in learning more about the cloud as a way to transform your business, watch on-demand now: The Business of IT Transformation: Driving Factors and Consideration Questions.

Rackspace CIO Ryan Neading will host the talk, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. CST and co-sponsored by Intel. Topics will include the major forces behind today’s business transformations, the top questions about the cloud every CIO should ask to minimize risk, and tips for starting a successful cloud journey using our executive summary and actionable checklist.
