EP31 - Utility industry is critical national infrastructure, where security, compliance & visibility in cloud is absolutely vital- [with our special guest Steven Ward @Siemens MAS‪]‬ Let’s Talk Cloud Networking - Unscripted

    • Technologie

Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast conversation with Steven Ward, Corporate Infra leader at Siemens MAS. 

Steven shared lessons learned from his personal cloud journey and how Siemens have transformed over the years to start realizing full benefit of cloud.

Some of the key points from the conversation:


Utility industry is critical national infrastructure, where security, compliance and visibility is absolutely critical and is a large part of why Siemens is working with Aviatrix
2 key factors businesses look for are: Predictability in Cost and predictability in outcome and cloud do provides this very well.
Enterprises are NOT a “software house” and DIY scripting at scale across different environments is like a “square peg in a round hole”
Aviatrix is redefining the security posture in the cloud by making it a first class citizen, embedded as part of the fabric with intelligence built on top. NOT a “bolted On” after thought which is a lift and shift on-prem to cloud approach.
Simplified Operations, Secure by Design and Repeatable experience across clouds are key foundational principles of modern cloud architecture. If Operations team is not confident, you will not go far with your cloud journey.
Early on, many businesses moved to the cloud as an experiment, a “cool thing to do” and to be seen as a forward-looking company      in front of customers and investors. But cloud has now clearly proven that it is much more than a replacement for VMware, Cisco etc.. Cloud is truly fueling      rapid innovation in almost every vertical.
Lastly, when moving to the cloud, don’t fall into the trap of “sorting it later”. Ensure to look at the cost implications of right sizing the environment up      front and ensure right cloud network architecture in place.
