Lift and Shift: Taking your Physical Network Management to the Cloud 

Tuesday, April 7 at 2:00pm EDT


Communications service providers are seeking ways to increase their competitive  edge and accelerate their digital transformation. Their IT managers are under pressure to  raise the performance bar to higher speed and scale despite reductions in budget and siloed  legacy systems. By managing their physical network assets with cloud service applications,  CSPs can gain visibility into their deployment projects and the availability of their network  resources. And using cloud infrastructure CSPs can improve security, data privacy, and  compliance operations while maintaining control and scalability.​ During this webinar the  presenters review the market forces driving the need for a ​lift-n-shift ​move to the cloud  architecture and applications; and they describe the changes to the IT workloads and  processes necessary to transform their network management to a cloud infrastructure.
