11.15 - 11.45 Keynote 4: Transforming IT Possibilities into Business Outcomes

As with any major generational shift in computing, IT organizations will need to alter more than just technical architectures in order to successfully capitalize on the opportunities presented by cloud computing. Customers that evolve the core operational model - their organizational structures, operational processes, and IT financial management practices - while concurrently transitioning to more effective technical architectures, will reap the greatest benefits over time.

IT organizations face increasing pressure to become more agile and innovate more rapidly to meet internal business requirements and help their organizations respond to competitive threats. Today, CIOs are expected to increase IT efficiency, improve responsiveness, and provide IT services that are both competitively priced and superior to those available from external suppliers. Moreover, these services must be delivered reliably and securely as part of a well-governed IT services delivery strategy.

How can IT address and overcome these challenges? Increasingly, cloud computing is seen as the answer. Cloud is a fundamentally different model for IT - one that enables CIOs to redefine the way IT services are delivered and consumed by the business. Innovative IT services that deliver business value and help organizations realize their strategic objectives often underpin improved alignment between business and IT.

VMware cloud solutions can help improve IT efficiency, agility and reliability, and drive innovation. By combining the technologies, services and guidance required to build, operate, staff and manage your cloud, VMware cloud solutions help organizations maximize the benefits of cloud computing.
