To unlock the fastest path to value from the cloud, enterprises must consider how to industrialize the application delivery process across each layer of the cloud environment, namely

  • Provisioning
  • Security
  • Networking
  • Deployment

This means embracing the cloud operating model and adapting your people, process, and tools to it.

In this webinar, HashiCorp Global CTO Brent Holden will look at the implications of the cloud operating model and present solutions for IT teams to adopt this model across infrastructure provisioning, security, networking, and application delivery.
