ExecTech Digital: Roy Hart on the importance of virtualization on the journey to cloud

As part of the development of GCDCS20 and the DC Foresight community associated with the event, InsightaaS has developed a number of ‘ExecTech Digital’ features – video interviews with Canadian and international data centre/IT service delivery thought leaders.

This content is available to GCDCS20 registrants, and InsightaaS is posting extracts from these discussion to our website as well.

Today’s session features Roy Hart, CIO at BCIT, discussing the importance of extensive/full virtualization of on-premises infrastructure in preparing for cloud. The full recording of Roy’s remarks also includes discussion of the following topics:

  • Establishing and defining business and technical requirements for cloud and hybrid
  • The role and structure of a SaaS library: why is it important, how is it achieved?
  • Keys to managing a diverse portfolio of cloud applications (and diverse user constituencies) through a central IT function
  • Delivering enterprise IT through cloud-based infrastructure
  • Building user acceptance of cloud/hybrid: managing resistance, celebrating success

We thank Roy for his contribution to thought leadership on a critical IT infrastructure topic! And look forward to welcoming him as a speaker at GCDCS20 on December 8th and 9th, and as a valued member of the DC Foresight community.
