CDW Executive SummIT: Optimizing Costs in the Cloud for the Financial Sector
When migrating to the cloud, some users are finding out that costs can outweigh the benefits of scalability and agility, and some organizations are rethinking the decisions they made over the past few years. For companies in the financial sector, which has been slower to move to the cloud, this timing could turn out to be advantageous. As they continue to migrate data and workloads to the cloud, they can leverage the power of automation to mitigate some costs. At the CDW Executive SummIT in Dallas, IT decision-makers discussed some of the challenges of moving to the cloud, as well as the possibilities that arise when automating traditionally manual tasks.
