Technology - Virtual Roundtable

Leading IT in a pandemic

26th May 2020 | 10:00am EST
How is the current crisis affecting your infrastructure and innovation?

Join five senior leaders on this roundtable discussion as we dedicate 90 minutes to answering one of the most valuable questions in business today…

There’s no doubt COVID-19 is affecting businesses in more ways than one. Stores are closing, employees are being mandated to their homes, and innovation is being disrupted. This current climate is creating major concerns for CIOs.

Information workers now need to focus on how to enable collaboration and creation while people are remote. They also need to look at expanding digital workplace resources so that the organization can remain agile.

Cyber security is also a big concern causing IT departments to review and update their existing security infrastructure. According to Hitachi Vantara, more than 90% of work will be created in uncontrolled environments, therefore creating a new dimension of possible attacks. Hackers can use this opportunity to attack your data center in and outside of your network.

So, how do you combat risk, enable collaboration and modify your DX program based on the current impact to the business? Join Hitachi Vantara and a group of digital IT leaders and CIOs to discuss what to prioritize during the pandemic.
