Faced with challenges around everything from customer engagement to risk management, and cybersecurity to operational excellence, businesses everywhere must become data-driven if they are to remain competitive.

Bypassing many of the cost and organisational bottlenecks associated with implementing new capacity in on-premise data centres, the cloud will play a key role in this.  

But becoming data-driven means servicing the requirements of all the stakeholders who work with that data. To avoid creating unsustainable data silos, enterprises require the flexibility to support each stakeholder group in an environment where data, governance and security policies are shared and enforced comprehensively and consistently.

Join Cloudera, Ovum and Microsoft for this live webinar at 2pm GMT/3pm CET on Tuesday April 30th where we’ll be exploring the future of enterprise cloud deployments in a world dominated by data. We’ll discuss:
  • Why managed cloud services will be critical for enterprises to leverage the full promise of the cloud in terms of time to value and agility.

  • Ovum’s belief that PaaS cloud services will become the default choice for the next wave of big data adopters

  • The emergence of the enterprise data cloud, offering private, hybrid and public cloud deployment models, and a variety of analytic experiences from the Edge to AI

  • How Cloudera’s and Microsoft’s partnership in delivering Altus services on Azure serves as a case study in delivering time to value for customers
