The essential guide to IT transformation

Live Today In the real world, you need to manage hundreds of apps, multiple operating systems, many classes of service. And now they're asking for cloud, too.

What do you do with the rest of your day?

Watch our latest Regcast, that's what. Today's live broadcast is at 11:00 BST and we've teamed up with datacentre expert Gordon McKenna at Inframon and Microsoft too, to bring you four ways in which you can manage the datacentre on your terms. You don't need to be a slave to your users. you don't need to be driven to the edge of insanity by the board. And you don't need to spend every weekend between now and early retirement kludging tools together.

We're going to deal with four important problems: how do you manage your apps? How do you manage cross-platform environments from the metal up? How do you assure application performance? and how do you accommodate internal and external cloud services?

We want you to share your experiences too via our ongoing live Q&A.

Gordon's promising us demos from the bleeding edge of Microsoft System Center 2012, because he doesn't think he should tell you what to do unless he shows you how to do it. We agree.

Join us from the comfort of your browser to find out if you do too.

You can register for this today's event right here, for free.
