Diversity scholarships are available for qualified applicants here, and the conference will be live streamed for those who cannot attend.
“Nearly every CIO I talk to is pursuing a “cloud-first” strategy as part of their digital transformation, but few organizations actually have a clear strategy or vision that takes into consideration the complexity of hybrid IT and application architecture,” said Margaret Dawson, Vice President Portfolio Product Marketing at Red Hat. “To achieve digital leadership takes alignment and collaboration across IT, lines of business, and finance, and CloudyCon is where this discussion and alignment is happening.”
CloudyCon attendees will gain knowledge through breakout sessions, workshops, FinOps certification courses, “how to” cloud financial management use cases and tutorials on FinOps – an operating model that empowers IT, finance and business teams to maintain high velocity IT delivery while mastering the unit economics of cloud. Attendees will also receive exclusive access to the new O’Reilly book Cloud FinOps: Collaborative, Real-Time Cloud Financial Management, now available for pre-order on Amazon. FinOps is a combination of systems, best practices and culture used by the largest cloud spenders in the world to increase an organization’s ability to understand cloud costs while bringing financial accountability to the variable spend model of cloud. More details about FinOps are available here, and to learn more about joining the FinOps Foundation, a non-profit trade association focused on FinOps best practices and standards, click here.
