IT organizations are moving from infrastructure providers to infrastructure brokers and auditors. In this panel, moderated by Nancy Gohring, editor in chief for FierceMarkets' enterprise IT publications, Cynthia Thomas and other industry experts from Nouvola, LiveAction and GoDaddy will discuss how to ensure users are getting the most out of their subscriptions, as well as how to orchestrate dependent services from different providers.
