As we see how automation is fueling digital transformation (On-premise vs cloud or the hybrid approach), many companies are now investing in cloud-based solutions. There are still some concerns from end-users who are sitting on the fence, cloud vs on-premise. As our business workload increases, security and emergency management professionals are looking at options that will help reduce costs and improve operational efficiencies. This session cover some of the challenges facing end-users in determining if a cloud base service solution like Software as a Service (SaaS) is ideal for their organization.

Learning Objectives:
1. Lessons learned case study - (vendor agnostic) on moving to the cloud (successes and challenges facing end-users) key concerns organizations face when addressing data privacy, data residency, cyber and compliance.
2. Understanding the operational efficiencies of a true validation of a ROI from an end-user.
3. What questions to ask before migrating to the cloud? How to get buy-in from the executive team.
4. A road-map to digital transformation strategy.
