Google+ Hangout Recap: If IT Is The ‘How,’ The Business Is The ‘Why’

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Alan Bush | September 3, 2013 2:56 pm

In last week’s installment of our Cloud Office Hours Hangout, we talked about some of the business use cases in the cloud. We had recently discussed some of the very specific IT use cases, but we wanted to take a step back and look at the business needs that informs those IT uses. You can watch the full video at the bottom of this post[1], but I have gone ahead and listed some of the highlights with a link to the point in time that the topic came up in the Hangout.

Those were some of the highlights from our previous Hangout! We are going to be back in action this short workweek on Thursday at 1:00 p.m. CST. Join us for an “Ask the Engineers” session with the engineers behind our new Deployments[9] automation engine. Be sure to visit Rackspace’s Google+ Events page[10] for more information and to register for the event. We’ll see you then!
