    Many are adopting the cloud for business applications, but what happens next? What unexpected problems or benefits do enterprises encounter? Do IT pros ever revert workloads back to on-premises after experimenting with public cloud? On the other hand, do they ever say "I wish I had moved a lot sooner"? Our panel of experts and IT practitioners will explore these answer to these questions and more:

    • Do lift-and-shift of existing workloads succeed, or are greenfield applications more successful?
    • Are costs in line with expectations? Are models for cost projection accurate?
    • Do consumption models through subscriptions meet existing IT budget processes and accounting processes, such as capex versus opex?
    • Can existing staff adapt to a cloud computing environment without a rework of skill sets, or are new staff needed?
    • Can the compliance standards that public cloud providers claim to meet be trusted? Are there hidden problems in terms of governance or risk?
    • Security paradox: Is the cloud better or worse for security? Can you get the same visibility as on-premises?
    • Is a multi-cloud strategy better to avoid lock-in, or should you aim for "best of breed"?
    • Does internal resistance stem from real technical or business reasons or from "business as usual" inertia?
