Developing a Roadmap for the Distributed Cloud

18th January 2022 | 3:00pm - 4:30pm IST | 8:30am - 10:00am GMT
How are you maximizing and optimizing your cloud strategy?

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by Hitachi Vantara

By the end of 2021, based on lessons learned over the course of the last 18 months, 80% of enterprises will put a mechanism in place to shift to cloud-centric infrastructure and applications – twice as many as before the pandemic. By 2024, 75% of enterprises will prioritise infrastructure agility and operational efficiency, leading to 5 times increase in the adoption of cloud-native architecture for core business application.

Many organisations are now adopting multiple clouds and cloud-native applications to ensure flexibility, resiliency, and modernisation. However, ongoing operational complexity can slow the full impact of a cloud-first strategy, putting added pressure on IT. So, how can you maximise your cloud strategy and enable an intelligent core to be digitally agile?

Join Hitachi Vantara and a select group of likeminded peers to discuss the challenges CIOs are facing with their cloud strategies, as well as how to develop a proper roadmap for the distributed cloud.

Discussion Topics

What obstacles are you facing with optimising your cloud strategy?
What emerging technologies within the cloud should you be implementing?
How can you better modernize the digital core and infrastructure?
