Roundtable Discussion with Mark Ardito & Kelsey Hightower
The idea is simple: Gather a small, select group of enterprise CIO leaders for honest, practical, and important discussions with VP of Modernization, Mark Ardito, around today’s most pressing topics. The first topic we’ll tackle, as we believe that we are finally making the turn and heading into the next evolution of cloud computing, is Cloud 2.0.
The initial idea of cloud computing for CIOs was once breathtaking. The promise: An unlimited amount of storage with an ecosystem of servers that had the ability to burst with additional capacity on demand. All the while, nothing needed to be purchased or installed because you simply rented this from a cloud provider. Sound familiar? Today, it’s clear we fell far short of that promise. Instead, CIOs still bear the responsibility of employing engineers to run and configure an infrastructure we don’t even own ourselves. So how can we, as CIOs, break free of this cycle?

Submitted questions & open forum for discussion
In this session, VP of Modernization at Kin + Carta, Mark Ardito, will discuss the shift from Infrastructure As A Service (IaaS) Cloud 1.0 mentality to the Platform/Software/Database As A Service (PaaS/SaaS/DaaS) paradigm of Cloud 2.0.
Together, we’ll openly discuss and identify solutions for:
The challenges of running traditional workloads in a public cloud
Moving away from a lift-and-shift mentality
The PaaS/SaaS/DaaS paradigm
How to truly adopt cloud-native services to benefit from cloud computing
Finally, you’ll stop worrying about button clicking and knob twisting infrastructure work and be able to focus on delivering business value and desired outcomes.

To ensure that each roundtable gathering is a productive and impactful discussion, participating CIOs will be asked a set of qualifying questions to make sure that everyone involved is coming in with some type of commonality, whether it is the pain points they are experiencing, where they are in their cloud journey, or seeking guidance on the technology they are leveraging.
