70% of UK businesses have a cloud first strategy… are you one of them?
Pulsant is hosting an interactive workshop, in collaboration with Microsoft, discussing migrating IT environments to a Microsoft Azure solution for hybrid cloud. So whether you’re already using cloud or thinking of migrating, this workshop is ideal.

The session will be hosted by Todd Whaley, director of Consultancy Services, and Tony Hogg, managing principal, Transformative Services, at Pulsant. They will also be joined by Mike Williams, senior technology strategist at Microsoft UK, who has years of experience in helping customers and partners digitally transform and adopt cloud-based solutions.

The session will examine the overall state of the industry, before delving into four key areas:
Cloud readiness – Understand what you have in your current environment, assess the costs and business case and provide a realistic roadmap to a cloud model.
Hybrid operating models – How do you assess and develop the best target operating model for your business? Get to grips with the models and considerations that will inevitably lead to an initial hybrid environment.
Migration – Understanding how to schedule and perform a migration is critical in order to ensure minimal disruption to the business.
Security – Looking at information security and networking, we will explore how and what is available to secure cloud solutions, and what are the considerations you need to review in a hybrid model.
