Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Whether it’s public, private, or hybrid, there is an emerging consensus that various forms of cloud computing will have a role to play in the future of IT delivery. But you have a data centre already, doing tasks that won't go away overnight. How do you build an operational environment without creating a completely disjointed mess? Do you shift everything to a cloud environment, or mix your delivery models? Vertical stacks or "plug and play"? Integrated management, or a heterogeneous environment?

Questions, questions...So live on November 30 at 11:00 GMT, Hewlett-Packard's David Chalmers joins Dale Vile from Freeform Dynamics and The Reg's Tim Phillips to provide answers, answers. They will discuss how recent innovations in server, storage and networking technology can be integrated, how to make those difficult decisions, and what the experience of Reg readers tells us about the choices you have made so far, and the results you have had.

We want to hear your questions and answers on these matters from the front line too.
