Support your hybrid work environment with new workloads and operating models

 In |

Reading Time: 4 minutes

During our March 2 webinar kicking off SHI’s Hybrid Workforce series, SHI’s Matt Fisher polled the audience on its expectations of hybrid work as we head toward the second half of 2021.

While 30.8% expect to return to the office (but with greater flexibility), 46.2% expect to adopt a truly hybrid model — illustrating that over 75% of people polled believe that the future of work involves some combination of remote work and return to office.

Given this, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Is your infrastructure robust and flexible enough to adapt to the ever-shifting goals of a hybrid work model?
  2. Is an aging infrastructure standing between you and a successful hybrid work environment?
  3. Is your network designed for the requirements of yesterday?

If one, two, or all of these are of concern (or even if you’re not quite sure), our next three webinars are designed for you.

Supporting new workloads and operating models

Our next set of webinars focuses on helping you build a single infrastructure strategy that meets the needs of a truly hybrid workforce. Specifically, we’ll dive into how to design a flexible and robust infrastructure with an agile network capable of supporting whatever “hybrid work” looks like for your business.

In these weekly webinars, you’ll learn:

  1. Whether to push more workloads to the public cloud or modernize your on-premises infrastructure – or both!
  2. How to address technical debt accumulated during the pandemic
  3. How to upgrade your network capacity to meet the increased demand for data processing and computing power, while reducing downtime
  4. What it means to have the right physical network devices to support your hybrid workforce
  5. And much more

Our presenters will use real-life scenarios to help you identify what solutions work best for you and the best ways to implement them.


Ensure your cloud migration success: Leverage app modernization and more!

March 30, 2021, 12 p.m. EDT

The future of your organization depends on its ability to respond quickly to planned and, more importantly, unplanned changes. ​But, if your organization is still heavily reliant on legacy apps, your data center resources may not be equipped to handle the demand.

Even if you adopted new cloud applications and workloads in 2020, you still might not be leveraging the full native capabilities of cloud computing. In fact, when not executed properly, there are dangerous and expensive drawbacks to cloud-enabled innovation.

Join cloud-certified architects from Stratascale, SHI’s consulting firm, as they debate the dos and don’ts of cloud migration, the common pitfalls of not planning appropriately, and how to fully leverage best-of-breed technologies, such as containers, microservice architectures, and analytics to ensure your cloud is successful.

HCI & public cloud: Know your options

April 6, 2021, 12 p.m. EDT

If you’re looking for simplicity, efficiency, and savings, adopting both hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions and public cloud resources might be the ideal solution for your environment.

In this session, SHI’s experts will demonstrate how HCI and public cloud can not only replace a legacy three-tier IT architecture, but also reduce technical debt. ​

So, if you’re wondering how to select, deploy, and manage the right mix of technologies to support your hybrid workforce and evolving business models, this webinar is for you.

How to increase your networking agility

April 13, 2021, 12 p.m. EDT

Your organization may find itself pushing more data processing and computing power to the edge, or it may even find existing networking equipment cannot meet increased workloads.

In this webinar, our experts will take you through how to assess where you are now and how to get to where you want to be.

Learn ways to transform your network for your hybrid employees. From VPN and security patches, to how to respond to employees who must share Wi-Fi bandwidth with others working from home, we’ve got you covered.

SHI can help you prepare for whatever comes next with solutions for building an agile and resilient infrastructure and a network ready to work for your hybrid workforce.
