Modernizing IT to deliver the benefits of the cloud – video

Cintra CTO Abdul Sheikh talks to Computer Weekly Editor-in-Chief Bryan Glick about why on-premises modernization is a critical part of a customer’s technology journey, even in the age of cloud transformation.


Sheikh explores why legacy on-premises architecture needs to evolve as part of a wider hybrid cloud strategy, and what organizations need to be doing to modernize their estates.

He addresses some of the options, including Oracle Database Appliance, Exadata Database Machine and talks at length about the benefits of Cloud at Customer, which provides the flexibility of opex pricing behind the customer’s own firewall.
