Tune into El Reg and Avnet live online today: How equipment makers will bring clouds home

Build a full-stack solution that makes the best of all available resources

Webcast As equipment manufacturers in industries from healthcare and transportation to security and communications well know, the future is going to be software-defined and maybe a little bit cloudy.

Opportunities are legion in terms of direct innovation and delivering new, better experiences for customers, driving both business effectiveness and reduced delivery costs.

But there is no one-size fits-all option when it comes to deployment. Far from it being a journey about how to “go to the cloud”, many organisations are discovering it’s about “bringing the clouds to you” — that is, embracing cloud as an architecture for in-house and publicly hosted systems and services alike. In parallel, questions abound about what to run where, given constraints of compliance and costs, connectivity and control.

In today's webcast, we discuss with Brian Stack, data centre business unit lead for Avnet Integrated, defining a premeditated multi-cloud strategy, making the best use of in-house data centres and public services, and selecting the right tool for the job.

Today's session, brought to you by Avnet, will cover:

  • The challenge and opportunity for OEMs — what are such organisations trying to do, and which issues are thwarting them?
  • What’s the starting point — defining an-overarching plan to help you as you review current applications and services
  • Where to go from here — setting out your road map for using cloud-based solutions, wherever they are hosted
  • Lessons, tips and tricks — summarising lessons learned from the field

So, if you’re all-in on cloud, feel you are stumbling in the dark, or are still on the starting blocks and don’t want to step into the mist without a bright light to guide you, join us online today.
