Enterprise Apps World @ Cloud Word Forum

enterprise

We’d like to invite you to the Enterprise Apps World, taking place at the Cloud World Forum on 24th & 25th June at Olympia Grand in London.

The inclusion of the extended Enterprise Apps World theatre responds to the research by those such as the Centre for Economics and Business Research showing how the European enterprise cloud app market is set to generate £2.7 billion ($4.2 billion) in revenue, an increase of 206%, by 2018.

Cloud computing is a critical driver in the Enterprise App market’s development and the timely Enterprise Apps theatre discusses and advances market opportunities, and provides necessary insight into cross-device and platform integration, security and BYOD challenges.

You will benefit from learning how enterprises and vendors can move on from ad hoc deployment of employee and customer facing applications, to implementing a strong enterprise mobility strategy to manage the cost and reap the operational benefits of traditional enterprise mobility solutions.

The Cloud World Forum and Enterprise Apps World’s 300+ strong industry expert speaker line-up includes…

  • Fin Goulding, CIO, Paddy Power
  • Imran Younis, Global Head of UX, LateRooms.com

We’re delighted to confirm Jane Gilmour, International CTO of Coca-Cola will be speaking at the Cloud World Forum on ‘IoT and the Coca-Cola Smart Vending Machines‘! In anticipation, we thought we’d share a great article from our 2014 Coca-Cola speaker, Onyeka Nchege, CIO of Coca Cola Bottling Company Consolidated on ‘Using Cloud for Mission-Critical App Consolidation.’

Coke is IT: Using Cloud for Mission-Critical App Consolidation

In recent years, North America’s largest Coca Cola bottling company has increased the number of cloud services it uses. And along with three other large US-based bottlers most recently began an ambitious project to migrate its on premise ERP application‑its crown jewels‑to the cloud. But Onyeka Nchege, chief information officer of Coca Cola Bottling Company Consolidated explained to Business Cloud News that despite working as separately owned organisations, Coca Cola is a collaborative effort, making the individual companies ideal candidates to leverage the economies of scale cloud services deliver.

CCBCC has shifted its focus in recent years to cloud services primarily because of the perceived benefits associated with flexibility and time-to-market.

The firm now uses ServiceNow for IT service management, which has helped the company streamline its internal helpdesk processes, and it’s also using a range of cloud-based services for human resources. The company is using Cornerstone OnDemand for talent management and Coupa for expenses management, all fairly light-weight software as a service applications.

Nchege says that the company, which was founded in North Carolina in 1902, is like most large, well-established firms with a large estate of legacy IT infrastructure: it had to do a lot of things in order to prepare for its move to the cloud.

We had to wrap our heads around this culturally. We shied away from moving to the cloud for so long and the business being as old as it is, a big part of moving bits and pieces out to the cloud first was to get our organisation comfortable with this new paradigm,” he says.

The biggest risks of moving to the cloud have less to do with technology and more to do with lack of education. It’s about trying to understand what you don’t really know, which is why we started with non-business critical applications.
