Podcast: Requirements for a successful cloud, with Lilac Schoenbeck

We are gearing up for VMworld this week. Did you catch Monday’s podcast? If not… here’s a second chance.

In this podcast we hear from BMC Software cloud marketing expert Lilac Schoenbeck about what it takes to succeed with cloud projects. It’s important to understand the process toward cloud. Lilac makes the case for working within your own IT department, defining your business goals, and then deciding to make, or buy, cloud services. She offers an overview of the 15 criteria listed in her white paper Requirements for a Successful Cloud.

For Cloud, there’s the make-or-buy question. The answer? It depends. Do you have the manpower and expertise to do it yourself? Or does it make more sense to get a solution from a company that not only has the expertise, but also has a wide range of experience in crafting cloud services successfully?
