    TechConnex and The Toronto Cloud Business Coalition are collaborating on the 2015 Toronto Cloud Bootcamp, a full-day event that provides practical guidance on adopting, connecting, and driving business benefit from cloud.

    Attendees – individuals with responsibility for managing cloud adoption and integration – will be divided into working groups. Using a variety of case study scenarios, the session will examine the important steps in effective cloud deployment and optimization from a variety of different contexts. Each participant will work with peers drawn from across the GTA cloud community to identify key actions and practices in six primary areas:

    Cloud strategy and planning – Cloud has different implications for enterprise and SMB organizations, but it requires planning in both cases: integration within the overall IT delivery fabric (and ensuring that cloud’s increasing presence doesn’t lead to increased security/regulatory exposure) within enterprises, and enablement of new business process within SMBs. This session will identify key issues that need to be considered in the adoption and expansion of cloud within IT and business contexts.

    Skills requirements and development – Cloud reduces the importance of some traditional IT skills, but it also drives requirements for many new competencies. This session will help attendees to understand which new skills are important within and outside the IT department, the best ways of developing them.

    Governance, risk and compliance (including privacy and data residency) – In many cases, the key cloud management issue for businesses is governance: how is cloud incorporated within existing governance, risk and compliance structures? This session will explore what needs to be done for cloud to be a positive contributor to GRC, and not a point of exposure.

    Delivering cloud via public, private and hybrid cloud environments – In a world that is transitioning from traditional on-premise infrastructure to corporate IT fabrics that incorporate multiple cloud platforms, defining and delivering cloud infrastructure is more a journey than a destination. This session will provide a framework for identifying key issues in establishing public, private and hybrid clouds within “brownfield” and “greenfield” environments.

    Advanced cloud application adoption and enablement – Increasingly, cloud is the platform enabling the most compelling next steps in IT. Collaboration, Analytics and Big Data, IoT and mobility all draw on cloud capabilities to improve a wide variety of business processes. This session will delve into the key issues in supporting advanced applications within an evolving cloud infrastructure.

    Cloud standards and security – Cloud standards and cloud security are both fundamental to building and delivering cloud services to business users (and customers). Standards (including OpenStack) and alternative commercial cloud foundations are important to creating the core of cloud infrastructure, and security is essential to using that infrastructure in a business context. This session will provide guidance in identifying what should businesses consider to ensure that they have the right foundations for cloud-based IT service delivery.

    Each module will draw on the best practices work that is being done within the Toronto Cloud Business Coalition (TCBC), and TCBC experts ranging from global vendors to local IT managers will be involved in working group discussions and in panel presentations framing key issues in each of the six areas. And to ensure that the bootcamp delivers value over time, attendees will be emailed best practices documents for each of the six key areas, developed by TCBC and authored by GTA-area cloud experts InsightaaS.

    To ensure that the session is highly interactive, there is a strict limit on overall attendance. Interested individuals are encouraged to reserve a seat at the table today!
