Multi-cloud: delivering digital innovation at the speed of business

23rd January 2020 | 6:00pm | De Nederlanden, Amsterdam
A Meet the Boss Live event in association with Dell Co.lab powered by Intel®

Are you one of the 93% of organisations working across multiple clouds? Is that creating the 30-40% savings you expect on your public cloud elements?

Today’s IT and finance leaders must radically reassess their methods of delivering technology together. Indeed, IDC has shown that traditional C-level roles are having to evolve to meet business-driven expectations, none more so than the CIO and the CFO in partnership. CIOs are becoming more strategic, and the CFO is expected to understand technology drivers.

The key benefits of a multi-cloud transformation should focus around the issues of siloed innovation and removing operational complexity and operation. Traditionally, costs were focused around upfront investment, which was measured against a TOC or an ROI of business successes. With most business applications it was about measuring the needs of the workplace and your customers, and building the best environment to deliver it.

We will explore how multi-cloud changes that dynamic by delivering full flexibility of both capital (capex) and operational (opex) expenditure models, to bring long-term investment for new services and applications. In other words, finance is no longer a blocker to experimentation and innovation, and multi-cloud has become the “master-key” for driving digital innovation.

At this Co.Lab event, you will discuss these opportunities for change with your peers. We will help you understand the evolution of leadership roles across industries. Most importantly, we will reveal how concepts such as private/public/traditional/cloud native are just implementation details based on policy, and uncover how multi-cloud drives digital innovation

Discussion Topics

How do we move from a mindset of being primarily driven by CAPEX/OPEX concerns, to one driven more by innovation? What hurdles need to be overcome to become more innovation-driven?
Users and customers alike today expect access to compute and apps everywhere, anytime. What are the tools, technologies and platforms that can help improve agility and deliver at “the speed of business”?
Multi-cloud is less about technology and more about establishing the right methodologies. How can a true multi-cloud methodology securely and flexibly deliver on the ever-increasing expectations of your business and its customers?
Siloed platforms, data and management systems are all blockers to business agility – yet operating across multiple cloud platforms is a reality for most organisations. How do we avoid recreating the mistakes of previous siloed environments in today’s multi-cloud world?
