Cloud Neutrality

    Have you ever wanted to provide immediate scalability, remote access and collaboration, automation, added IT security, and cost predictability…, well many data centers have already extended beyond traditional owned infrastructure to include a collection of assets and services spread across the globe.  As cloud markets mature, more companies are looking to transition their data center operations and business applications into cloud environments.  You’ve probably at least caught wind of the concept of cloud technology if not already actively using in your business.  Neutrality means you are not bound to one cloud provider or carrier.  Freedom to choose!  We can purchase the best solution for our organizations thus creating hybrid infrastructure.  The enterprise network now becomes a center of the computing universe and we need to be very good at securely connecting it all together.

Alice McClellen

    Our June speaker will discuss the subject of cloud neutrality and hybrid infrastructure to bring us up to date on the benefits and lessons learned.

    Our speaker is Alice McCellan who is Vice President of Technology and Facilities at Genesco. Alice has been with Genesco since early 2015. She and her staff have been researching the cloud opportunities in order to prepare Genesco management for the future.

Note that dinner fees have changed for 2016:
