The essential guide to IT transformation

Webcast Data centre managers today need to get IT marching to the beat of the business and that means finely tuning the solutions and services they offer to get everything in step.

On the 11th of March at 11am, we have a few special guests to talk us through the finer points of these challenges. Tim Phillips from The Register is host for the day and he's joined by Greg Charman from Microsoft and Graham Rushton from Avanade.

For some people orchestration means getting knee deep in ITIL and COBIT. For others it means identifying and automating the solutions the business relies on. It means fully aligning the processes under their responsibility and it means getting their management tools integrated so they keep everything singing in tune.

Orchestration does of course mean looking at things differently, it's not about provisioning servers or patching or triage. It's about end to end management of the solutions and processes and it can take some getting used to in the real world. But there's little doubt if you get it right it can pay significant dividends.

The panel will be exploring all of these theories and practices and shedding some light on how it's done in the real world, thanks to some interesting projects the panel members have been working on. We hope you'll be keeping them busy with plenty of questions too. They're ready to handle whatever you've got to throw at them during this live broadcast.

If it sounds like your bag, you can join us for free right here.

If you can't make the live date, register now and we'll send you a recording as soon as it's available. Then you can watch it at your liesure.
