Bimodal IT Webinar with Computing, Advanced and PRS for Music - now available to view on demand

"There is a change happening. How do we embrace that change, how do we learn from it, and how do we actually get the value from it?
- Rob Bruce, Head of Technology and IT Support, PRS for Music

Most businesses operate on a mix of in-house, hosted and Cloud-based infrastructure – known by Gartner as Bimodal IT. 

Whilst this model is not new, many still find this state to be an uncomfortable transitionary zone. Core applications remain wedded to legacy infrastructure, meaning businesses are unable to move as quickly as they would like. At the same time, efforts should be focused on the Cloud which is crucial in creating a digital, customer-facing infrastructure. 

We open up the discussion about ways in which organisations can smooth the journey to seamless cloud integration and what it means for IT Departments.

The panel is hosted by Computing and includes Marc Beder, Director of Technology at Advanced and Rob Bruce, Head of IT from PRS for Music - an Advanced customer.
