2022 HMG Live! Multi-Cloud Executive Leadership Summit

As enterprise companies expand their use of the cloud, they typically rely on multiple cloud providers to meet their needs and to achieve greater redundancy and business continuity. For companies that adopt a multi-cloud strategy, most executives cite best-of-breed opportunities and cost optimization as their primary objectives, according to a study by IDG. In this executive panel discussion, top business technology executives and industry experts share their recommendations for leveraging a multi-cloud environment to get the most bang for their buck while enabling the digital enterprise to fire on all cylinders. 

 


 

“Trust changes everything for you as a leader, for your IT team and for your relationships.”

    EXECUTIVE PRESENTATION:  How to Accelerate your Journey to Multi-Cloud

    Hammad Alam, VP, Solutions Architecture, Aviatrix interviewed by Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

    Organizations put their workload where they run best. With that, every large enterprise is by definition multi-cloud as no one cloud is best for all kinds of workload. In addition, M&A activities, speed, location, cost, leadership changes are all additional factors that result in requiring infrastructure teams to be ready to support multi-cloud.

    One of the fundamental enablers to run and operationalize a multi-cloud enterprise is to have a secure network architecture which allows applications to be placed where business needs them to be. They require security and operational models to remain consistent irrespective of the underlying CSP.

    Aviatrix has a unique, industry-first Multi-Cloud Network Architecture that enables enterprises to commoditize cloud providers and break the vendor lock-in. In this session, you will learn how Aviatrix is leading with Secure Networking to accelerating your Cloud Transformation while also solving cloud skillset gap in the marketplace.

      Tonkean is the OS for Business Operations, empowering operations teams to rapidly improve efficiency with an enterprise-grade, composable automation platform. By allowing ops teams to automate, monitor, and manage mission-critical business processes with no-code, while still maintaining compliance and security, Tonkean enables enterprises to accelerate operational velocity at scale. The Tonkean platform makes automating complex business processes simple and accessible to non-developers, such as business operations teams and process owners, by abstracting the high technical barrier and coding expertise needed to deliver robust, enterprise-grade process solutions via composability. Ops teams compose custom process solutions using building blocks called “enterprise components” or ECs. ECs are modular, interchangeable, and reusable capabilities that perform actions or complete steps in a business process. ECs are fully governed and curated, typically by IT. They can be adopted from vendors or custom built, or they can simply be extensions of existing tools and systems. This allows ops and process experts to rapidly build holistic process solutions that can work with different systems, easily adapt to changing needs, and measure cross-functional KPIs–all with no-code and no change management. Enterprises like Google, EVERSANA, Instacart, Grubhub, Crypto.com, and more rely on Tonkean to optimize and align their operations across functions—including sales, marketing, customer support, legal, finance, and more. With Tonkean, enterprises can expand the pie of who can deliver software to make a world of Makers.
