    Taking your next step with cloud technologies is not at all clear or simple, no matter where you’re at with cloud migration of you infrastructure, applications, or your legacy system. Planning and executing your steps with Cloud and going from “here” to “there” presents a myriad of approaches, vendor options, and key risks that expose the entire business – not just an aspect of the IT department. This session will break down mysteries for the available cloud models and help you compare the aspects of architecture, model, service delivery, service levels, staffing/skills, security, and legacy/current core application deployment. Covering the above overall subject from the Azure (Microsoft) standpoint, but also with an external solution partner perspective for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications through Microsoft-managed data centers along with clarity for software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
