Case Study: Best Buy

A session at CloudBeat 2011

  • Thomas Kelly
  • Ian Kelly

Wednesday 30th November, 2011

11:45am to 12:10pm (PST)

Like a lot of enterprises, Best Buy found that its developers were routing around corporate IT in order to use storage and applications in the cloud. Rather than ban this, or look the other way, Best Buy worked to find effective ways to exploit the benefits of both cloud and on-premise infrastructure. Developers retained the flexibility that they’d gone outside the firewall to look for, and Best Buy was able to ensure that IT policies and procedures were adhered to, delivering clear benefits to all concerned. Ian Kelly and Thomas Kelly from Best Buy join Trinity Ventures’ Dan Scholnick to explore the lessons that Best Buy learned, and the challenges that still need to be overcome.
