ONUG Announces Virtual, Biannual Fall 2021 Event Focus: Enterprise Cloud 2.0

The community of Global 2000 companies, enterprise architects, cloud providers and thought leaders announce the most comprehensive virtual program yet.

ONUG, the voice of the Global 2000, recently announced its ONUG Fall 2021 event. To be held virtually on October 20-21, ONUG Fall 2021 is a world-renowned live event for cloud architects, IT professionals, designers, engineers, DevOps teams and C-level executives to learn about the tools and solutions to build, run and secure multi-cloud infrastructure in 2022 and beyond.

Sponsored by DXC Technology, ONUG Fall will host 55 sessions led by more than 80 cloud and digital transformation thought leaders from some of the largest cloud consumer companies in the world. The free event will include a unique attendee experience with interactive content, vendor-neutral discussion, Q&As with global IT leaders and valuable networking opportunities.

“Governance, policy and controls are at the heart of Enterprise Cloud 2.0,” said Nick Lippis, co-founder and co-chair of ONUG. “The Open ONUG Community is now building open source products that will become part of the connective tissue between on- and off-premise infrastructure. At ONUG Fall 2021 we look forward to an industry conversation around Enterprise Cloud 2.0 attributes and how to close connective tissue gaps within hybrid/multi-cloud infrastructure. Solutions will come from start-ups, on-prem suppliers, cloud providers, open-source communities, academics, home-grown approaches and others,” he said.

“Also at ONUG Fall, the ONUG open community’s Cloud Security Notification Framework decorator will be unveiled,” Lippis announced. “It will mark an industry first for the CSNF decorator to be demonstrated across multiple cloud services and on-prem providers.”

Attendees will hear from the enterprise IT vendor ecosystem and learn about key topics including but not limited to a model for open multi-cloud security notifications, detection versus protection cybersecurity, cloud edge solutions, are workloads being repatriated back to on-prem, best practices for cloud governance, control and policy, how Target is gaining cloud independence, ONUG working group run books, how the shift left is driving DevOps adoption, a cloud-native security maturity model and so much more.
