Many cloud service providers are investigating cloud federation as a means to gain revenue and expand their reach. Whilst this approach may be valid for some, it is unlikely to be the most efficient, impactful or defensible strategy.
In this webinar, Tony will provide clarity around the strengths, weaknesses and difficulties of implementing a successful cloud federation business model by presenting some of the business and operational challenges.
Instead, an alternative approach to federation is proposed that focuses on why differentiation is an attractive and viable alternative. Tony will show that creating differentiated services can often create much faster market traction and a client base that is more defensible than striving for a federated offer.
Benefits for attendees:
Attend this webinar if you want to be able to assess whether any of the common challenges in adopting federation apply to you and/or you want to understand how you can use differentiation as a complimentary or alternative approach to federation.
Webinar Date / Time: Tuesday 19th, February, 2013 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm EDT / 11:00am to 12:00pm PDT
