Our first CTO Roundtable of 2018 is on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 from 8 to 10 AM on the “4th Wave of Disruption – the remaking of the Enterprise IT Stack”.
Enterprise IT is again in the middle of significant disruption. It is no longer sufficient to migrate IT workloads to AWS or Azure. We must re-architect applications to leverage the new Cloud Native Enterprise IT Stack. The CTO Roundtable has partnered with Mayfield, the premier Silicon Valley Venture Firm, to develop a compelling 3-part agenda led by knowledgeable speakers to discuss this significant evolution in Enterprise IT.
Enterprise IT – 4th Wave of Disruption, a VC Perspective

Cloud and Container Native as game changes for Enterprise IT
Michael Ferranti, VP of Product Marketing, Portworx (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Two things are happening in parallel that make it radically simpler to build, deploy and run sophisticated applications. The first of course is the move to the cloud, and we all know that its impact is huge. The second is the move to Cloud Native architectures. Cloud Native has some key attributes, loosely coupled microservices built with containers and automation at each stage (CI/CD, APIs, Config, etc.) and finally with DevOps as the driver. The Cloud Native architecture enables agility and resiliency — making it clear why we all want to get there as quickly as possible.
Cloud Economics and Migration or Re-Architecture, Disruption and Skills Gap
Parmeet Chaddha, SVP Operations, CloudSimple (email@example.com)
Reaching for clouds — Enterprises are decreasing datacenter spending and adopting cloud-based services, and yet, many applications remain on-premises, and the benefits of cloud remain elusive. A smooth transformation into a Cloud Consumption model without application or operations re-architecture in Virtualization, Availability, Networking, Security, Data Protection, Operations etc. remain the key obstacles. Diving deeper the issues and obstacles increase such as, further independent, dedicated domains for security, failure, maintenance and sovereignty, audit and compliance clearance. Parmeet will also review Infrastructure innovations essential to get the best availability, resiliency and performance for applications.
