Episode 4: The secrets to managing applications in the cloud


26m listen time




As organisations migrate workloads and applications to the cloud, they need to ensure that these are carefully overseen, managed and protected – and this is where CIOs are increasingly reliant on managed cloud service providers.

In this fourth episode, we tackle where responsibility lies between CIOs and vendors, how MCSPs can supplement the skills gap and how organisations get clear insight into how their applications are performing in the cloud.

Listen to the debate!

Contributors featured in this episode include:

  • Bola Rotibi, Research Director, CCS Insight
