The Best of Both Worlds: On-premise technology with a "Pay-as-You-Use" cloud/consumption model

For IT leaders tasked with managing the data center, the rise of public cloud offerings has provided a new way for traditionally on-premises workloads to be addressed.  The public cloud's flexibility, operating expense treatment and pay-as-you-use consumption billing can be compelling.  However, the tradeoffs on control, privacy and regulatory compliance can often be too much to overcome.

Come hear how Winthrop is enabling organizations to capture the best of both worlds:  keep an on-premises data center strategy while leveraging a "Pay-as-You-Use" cloud/consumption billing model -- all while capturing superior economics compared to transitioning to a cloud solution.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
