Architecting and optimizing cloud for the entire enterprise

Many of the problems organizations have with realizing cloud ROI and value stem from an architecture that isn’t optimized for the overall business strategy, but instead for particular solutions or narrow business goals. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Red Hat’s E.G. Nadhan about how companies can take a collaborative approach to ensure that their architecture is built and optimized to reflect the strategy of the business as a whole, not just a sum of its parts.


The architecture should be accommodative of different environments...so that you as the enterprise have the freedom of choice as to the target.
