Presented by: Steve Francis, Nigel Kersten


According to a recent study, 83% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020—41% of enterprise workloads will run on public cloud platforms, an additional 20% are predicted to be private cloud based, and another 22% will be running on hybrid cloud platforms.

The cloud (in all its forms) allows your organization to deliver more value to customers faster. In order to execute a successful cloud strategy, organizations have adopted a DevOps approach, focusing on automation and monitoring. Full visibility of your IT infrastructure and workloads—whether in the data center or cloud—is key to successfully managing a DevOps environment.

Join this webcast with LogicMonitor founder and chief evangelist Steve Francis and Puppet chief tech strategist Nigel Kersten to:

  • Learn what should and shouldn’t be migrated to the cloud
  • Learn why having strong configuration management along the way is ideal
  • Gain valuable insights and tips on how to increase your IT agility
  • Understand what steps you can take to enhance the DevOps culture within your organization
