Mike has spent 30 years at HP in development, product management and latterly, product marketing.
Mike's team is responsible for marketing cross-IT solutions for HP Software including cloud, application transformation, and converged infrastructure.
Our question this week is: "How can you ensure integration, security and lifecycle management across your existing IT infrastructure and your cloud? Will I have to commit to a single proprietary cloud environment and integrate deeply, or only use basic services?"
Come learn about cloud in the real of enterprise IT from experts and your peers.
This is our fourth of sixth Twitter chats every Thursday 1-2 p.m. EDT. The final two will be May 10th and 17th.
Security and privacy, not surprisingly, tops the list of cocnerns with cloud adoption. That's according to the attached IDC Research Services survey conducted on behalf of HP. Number two is compliance and governance security followed by identity and access management. As enterprises move to the cloud, about half will rely on outside firms or groups outside of IT to address security. Check out this survey and find what your peers are concernced about when it comes to cloud adoption.
“I want to do private cloud because I want to be more agile and because I want to be much more efficient at IT operations”.
Um. Private cloud will most certainly help you with the first objective – it will stand up development, test and production environments (i.e. server/storage/network and middleware and dev, test and production applications) much more quickly. And it will “cut IT out the loop” allowing users to have their requests actioned without humans holding up the process.
We in HP Software have created a new HP Software Cloud presentation. I"ve posted two versions. The first has a voiceover (only about 10 minutes). The second is a PDF created from showing the slides and the notes I created for each slide.
I was explaining to my teenage kids the other day what I did. I talked about how our
software products ensured that IT infrastructure was reliable. Blank look.
"What is IT infrastructure?", they asked. I said, "it's like the
power or water or sewage".

Taylor, managing editor for IDG Enterprise. The full interview can be found here.
