Microsoft Cloud: Can You Really Afford to Fail?

I'll be hosting a webinar on April 21 at 11 am ET entitled, "Microsoft Cloud: Can You Really Afford to Fail?" Below is some more information on the event. Be sure to register and bring any questions you'd like answered!

Microsoft Cloud: Can You Really Afford to Fail?

In it's simplest form, the Microsoft Cloud is like a puzzle. Once you get an edge started you can build it out from there. But you need the picture on the box to understand the whole structure.

In this special Microsoft Cloud webinar, we will help you complete the first corner, then the remaining corners, and then the border. It will be up to you to fill in the center. But we promise you this will be a good start.

More specifically, we will provide answers to common Microsoft Cloud questions such as:

  • Can I keep some of my stuff in the data center?
  • How do all the services I supply to my end users fit in this model?
  • Can some be in Azure? How about O365? EMS? Windows Server 2012?
  • Can I run SQL in "The Cloud"?

We'll highlight the pitfalls to avoid that will enable you to successfully embrace the Microsoft Cloud in your environment.
