If your IT organization is like most, you probably have some level of virtualization in place today that you're thinking about moving to the cloud. How should you get started? This webinar will discuss the benefits of moving beyond virtualization to gain the full benefits of cloud computing -- and how to avoid missteps along the way.

We'll explore:     
How the cloud builds on but moves beyond virtualization    
The shift to "IT as a Service" that underpins cloud computing    
Organizational, governance, and technology best practices for cloud adoption 

Virtualization and cloud computing are sometimes discussed interchangeably. But gaining the full benefits of cloud computing requires approaches and processes that often aren't in place where ad hoc virtualization is the norm. Join us and learn how to make a smooth transition.
