CIPS MB Winnipeg Sep 22nd Lunch: "Who Really Is Using Public Clouds and Why?"
Tue, 09/22/2015
Event Location: 
Bergmann’s on Lombard (620 – 167 Lombard)

CIPS Manitoba Presents:  

Who Really Is Using Public Clouds and Why?

Many organizations today are facing significant decisions on how to support their core business. Internal IT has a new enabler, and maybe a new competitor, with public cloud offerings. Decisions on leveraging cloud providers are happening outside of the traditional IT decision making process. This is creating pressure for CIOs to determine a cloud strategy while still preserving the importance of their IT department. With broader awareness of cloud offerings, IT needs to properly balance the expectations of cost, performance and security with the overall needs of the organization. This discussion will focus on the types of services suited to cloud and considerations that come with moving elements of your business to a cloud provider.

Rob Wiens is Co-Founder and Managing Director of Sequoia, a Winnipeg-based Enterprise Consulting and Integration company. Rob has an enterprise sales background with 10 years at Hewlett-Packard and 5 years most recently with VMware. Building on his experience with enterprise systems, virtualization and cloud platforms, his organization focuses on helping customers realize the full value of their current on premise IT investments while enabling adoption of hybrid and public cloud solutions.
