The cloud: How far is too far?

The Cloud has become a backbone of the world economy over the last decade, powering everything from streaming services to mobile banking. It’s a fantastic resource, but as time goes on the limits of the Cloud are becoming clearer, from over-reliance issues to incompatibility with legacy hardware. This week - part 1 of a 2 part special - we’re taking a look at the challenges of the Cloud, and how organisations can make sure they are making best use of the opportunities it presents.

The Cloud has become a backbone of the world economy over the last decade, powering everything from streaming services to mobile banking. It’s a fantastic resource, but as time goes on the limits of the Cloud are becoming clearer, from over-reliance issues to incompatibility with legacy hardware.

This week - part 1 of a 2 part special - we’re taking a look at the challenges of the Cloud, and how organisations can make sure they are making best use of the opportunities it presents. We’ll be examining how the financial world is looking to ensure it doesn’t become too reliable on single points-of-failure in the cloud. We’ll be examining how organisations which have made huge capital investments in non-Cloud hardware are having to make choices about their digital future, and taking a look at two of the Cloud’s biggest selling points: sustainability and cost savings. We’re speaking with HPE Chief Technologists Russell MacDonald and Adrian Lovell around digital transformation and the effects of the Cloud on the world of FinTech.

We’re also talking with Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum about cloud adoption in the UK, Adriaan Bekker, Technical Director at Softwerx Ltd about the challenges of cloud migration and digital transformation, and EM Law founder Neil Williamson on the legal considerations surrounding cloud computing.

In the next episode, we’ll be looking at how organisations are overcoming these challenges - from upskilling staff to hybrid cloud models.
