May 29, 2014:Today, Jason Miller, WTOP and Doug Bourgeois, VMware, and Stuart Fleagle, Carpathia discuss the case for Hybrid Cloud. Major transformation is underway that affects how we live and work. This transformation is enabled by technological innovation, particularly by Cloud Computing and the Mobile Internet. For Federal IT organizations to successfully deliver this Transformation, they need to fully embrace their existing investments to leverage a hybrid cloud. A carefully architected hybrid cloud approach that leverages previous private cloud investments will help drive compatibility across a multi-cloud environment, and minimize the ‘silos of clouds' that are popping up today. Listen in to the discussion, and see what they have to say about the intersection of technology and transformation.
