  • The Realities of Hybrid Multicloud Environments

  • Tuesday, 5th July 2022
  • 12.25pm to 2pm
  • Location: Virtual
  • Registration Closed

Enterprises that manage mission-critical infrastructures are under unprecedented and complex operational pressures. At the same time business leaders want to take advantage of the agility of cloud applications for transformation of workplace services and the customer experience.

To deliver on both dimensions, we need to modernise on-premise infrastructures, including mainframes, and adopt new operating models that can maximise the return from hybrid, multicloud infrastructures, including edge computing and virtualised workplaces, that have developed over the last few years.

This Digital Boardroom will explore

  • how mission-critical enterprises can deal with legacy and technical debt
  • how we can bring hybrid and multicloud infrastructures under control
  • how to build business resiliency into our IT transformation
  • the prerequisites for a data fabric that can unlock value from data and AI
