Systems and IBM host “Leveraging the Power of Cloud”

Systems in collaboration with IBM hosted “Leveraging the Power of Cloud” on June 25 at Karachi Marriott Hotel. The event highlighted numerous cloud capabilities and use cases that help in solving business problems.

The event began with an informative presentation on “IBM Strategy for Multicloud World” by Onforio Lazzizzera, Cloud Architect at IBM. The presentation was followed by a case study panel discussion on Systems implementation of IBM Cloud Private and IBM Multicloud Manager and how this enhanced business processes. The discussion was moderated by Ovais Khan, Head of Digital Frameworks at Systems, and the panelists included Asim Noorani, Hybrid Cloud Technical Sales Leader at IBM; Tariq Gul, Head of Process Automation & Database & Data Analytics at Bank Alfalah; and Maiarj Yousuf, Country Manager, IBM Software Pakistan & Afghanistan.

“We have to provide an effective way of upgrading and rolling back of applications,” said Onofrio Lazzizzera, Cloud Architect at IBM. “There has to be a simple way to deploy the package that makes its use convenient and hassle free for the users.

“Innovation is fostered and agility is being delivered through cloud adoption rather than simply managing existing applications. Once customers start their journey with cloud, they become dependent on cloud capabilities to enhance their operational efficiency.”, says Tariq Gul, Head of Process Automation & Database & Data Analytics at Bank Alfalah;

The event concluded with one-on-one consultations on cloud implementations between participants and Systems’ professionals.
