Cloud adoption continues to escalate. The cloud's natural elasticity, resiliency, and agility are certainly attractive to IT, but what about business value? A strong business case for cloud can be based on the predictable pricing models, but there are many more areas to scope out the fuller business impact. For example, 

  • What is the total opportunity cost for not moving to cloud? 
  • What's lost by failing to meet unpredictable, seasonal, or even ongoing latent IT demands? 
  • How do you price business agility, operational resiliency, and—especially important today—effective digital transformation?

And just using cloud for infrastructure doesn’t come close to maximizing the potential business opportunity. 

Citrix and AWS are working together to layer Citrix’s advanced productivity solutions on AWS, enabling improved user experiences, user productivity gains, and an acceleration of business operations. The Citrix Cloud also integrates on-premises IT and AWS into a cohesive, value-producing hybrid. No application, data, or user gets left behind while cloud adoption accelerates.

Come join Small World Big Data’s Principal Analyst Mike Matchett as he explores this exciting collaboration between Citrix and AWS Value Engineer Gregg Nichols and Senior Partner Solution Architect, Joanne Lei. Together we will lay out detailed cloud business value factors, review actual corporate IT experiences, and explore all the ways that businesses can achieve increased business value on their journey to the cloud.
