Are you running a hybrid environment between on-premises and Azure? Do you want to be? In a recent webinar, Sr. Principal Architect, Chris Seferlis, answered the question: How can my organization begin using hybrid cloud today? In this webinar, he defines the four key pillars of true hybrid development, identity, security, data platform and development, and shows actionable resources to help get you started down the hybrid road.
Hybrid cloud presents great opportunity for your organization and is the path most are going down:
80% of enterprises see themselves operating hybrid clouds for the foreseeable future
58% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy (up from 55% a year ago)
87% of organizations are planning to integrate on-premises datacenters with public cloud
In this in-depth webinar, Chris covers:
Hybrid Identity with Window Server Active Directory and Azure Active Directory – Identity is the new control plane. We’ve all got lots of services, devices and internal apps and firewalls do not protect your users in the cloud.
With Azure AD you:
- Have 1000s of apps with 1 identity
- Enable business without borders
- Manage access at scale
- Have cloud-powered protection
Security – Better security starts at the OS – protect identity, protect the OS on-premises or in the cloud, help secure virtual machines.
Coupling Server 2016 with Azure enables security for your environment at cloud speed.
Azure enables rapid deployment of build-in security controls, as well as products and services from security partners and provided integration of partner solutions. Microsoft is making a major commitment to integration with 3rd party tools for ease of transition and a true hybrid approach.
Data and AI – AI investment increased by 300% in 2017. Organizations that harness data, cloud and AI out-perform and out-innovate with nearly double operating margin.
This webinar will tell you how to transform your business with a modern data estate.
