The essential guide to IT transformation

Live today De Vere hotels had legacy systems, systems that needed updating but, most of all, it had lots of servers doing different things. Having grown by acquisition, it needed to consolidate if it wanted to realise its plans for customer service. It did this using a private cloud created by ANS Group, based on NetApp's FlexPod. At 11:00 GMT today, you can hear the story of how it succeeded from Studio Reg.

Joining us for a live hour of their chat and your questions on how private cloud can be used to consolidate - and how consolidation can achieve flexibility and performance as well as save money - will be Jo Stanford from the De Vere Group, Andy Barrow from ANS Group and Laurence James from NetApp. Tony Lock of Freeform Dynamics will be providing the Wisdom Of The Ages as usual, and the Reg's Tim Phillips will squeeze in too (but we're not sure where) to put your questions to the expert panel.

As the feverish excitement of cloud hype becomes a practical challenge for you to solve, you strive to know whether private cloud delivers what it promises and whether it can meet the needs of a real business. We have the people who can give you the answers you need. Join us here, for free, on January 25 to hear them. ®
