Many people mistakenly think operations like product development, sales, marketing, finance, etc., all have different processes and goals. To certain extent, that’s true, but all these operations have common goals for driving the business forward. It’s the job of owners and their managers to leverage the right tools and strategies to keep these different departments running efficiently and in the same direction.

And while some companies have fully embraced the cloud as an asset to improve their business, many managers have largely ignored its growing impact and value. Understanding of the cloud, and how it can be integrated and leveraged in a business, can still be ambiguous.

Join us for a free 60-minute webinar, Unleash Innovation: How Technology and Operations Can Drive Performance, brought to you by Entrepreneur and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Moderator and Entrepreneur contributor Peter Gasca will speak with two experts — one at the leading edge of cloud-based business services and one who has led the integration across his organization and knows how you can, too.

The second speaker is Ian Wright is the VP of Infrastructure and Operations at Pearson, the world's leading learning company with 24,000 employees across 70 countries worldwide.
