Now more than ever, agencies cannot afford to get burned by legacy infrastructure investments that not only fail to provide the agility required today, but that are also excessively expensive. To both maximize productivity and mission efficiency, more agencies are prioritizing hybrid cloud initiatives as their cloud-smart strategy. Among the best ways to realize this vision is software-defined infrastructure like hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), allowing private datacenters to operate like public clouds.
But what are the right tools for determining ROI on cloud investments? How do you get IT to meet budget and project goals—and how do you measure success? How do others do it? What works? What does not? How do you more effectively lead your people to be more effective and transparent?
Hear Steven Kaplan, author of The ROI Story: A Guide for IT Leaders and frequent contributor to Forbes Magazine, explain how organizations can approach their cloud strategy with a return-on-investment (ROI) framework to help federal CIOs, CTOs, CFOs, IT managers, IT staff, and system integrators sustainably modernize their IT for the cloud era.
