Dimension Data: SAP-as-a-Service: Fact or Fiction?
Peter Prowse - General Manager, Data Centre, Dimension Data
There is no doubt that of all the changes in today’s IT landscape, the most disruptive, and transformational, to the datacentre has been cloud. Many organisations face the decision to host applications and retain their datacentre infrastructure or focus entirely on cloud services. Although hybrid models are the starting point for many Australian organisations, there is an emerging trend for large enterprises to move all workloads, including mission critical applications, to the public cloud.
These are critical strategic decisions that can have profound implications for an organisation’s core IT capabilities and its associated ability to innovate. It involves making decisions about what are and are not critical applications, and about what are the appropriate services to manage these applications.
During this session we will explore practical examples of enterprise applications including SAP
