Enterprise Cloud Forum: Cloud Is A New Business Model, Not A Technology

One of the biggest missteps enterprises make is treating cloud computing like a technology, when instead it should be viewed as an entirely new business model.

On Wednesday, January 9 at 11 a.m. CST, the Rackspace Enterprise Cloud Forum will address this issue in its latest webinar “Adopting a Service Provider Mentality and Empowering a Self-Service Organization.”

Join Lisa Larson, Rackspace Vice President of Enterprise Cloud Solutions; Anand Bhadouria, Rackspace Senior IT Strategist, Enterprise Cloud Solutions; and Steve Mills, Rackspace CIO, in the Enterprise Cloud Forum, where they will discuss how Rackspace is becoming its own customer and how Rackspace IT is empowering a self-service organization.

Powered by the Rackspace Advisory Services Team, the Enterprise Cloud Forum is a virtual roundtable discussion that brings together ideas from both IT and business to help drive your future IT strategy. Our industry thought leaders will share key learnings from real-life experiences on a wide variety of cloud topics.

During this installment of the Enterprise Cloud Forum, the panel will discuss:

  • The importance of IT meeting the demands of the business
  • How to protect from the dangers of shadow IT and leverage its benefits
  • How to create an army of empowered employees
  • How to approach service catalog development
  • How IT can drive business value back into the organization through the apps

Be prepared to change the way you think of the business of IT during the live hour-long session – the second 30 minutes is for Q&A.

Register now for the session. Space is limited to the first 50 registrants, so sign up now.
