Retail and manufacturing’s changing landscape: get ahead with cost-savings in the cloud

21st May 2020 | 2:00pm - 3:30pm EST
How to leverage cloud to drive agility and cost benefits

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

Retailers and manufacturers agree that migrating to the cloud is a necessity, particularly as their digital-first counter parts are quickly taking advantage of the ability to scale as required.

There’s no denying the cost benefits that cloud offers and, as businesses gain the ability to move larger portions of computing costs away from on-premise infrastructures, the expense of cloud becomes more manageable.

A cloud-based ERP system – the heart of your infrastructure and application suite – is no exception and can offer low implementation costs, reduced man hours and minimal system down-time.

But how do you ensure you’re actually saving money in the cloud versus an on-prem infrastructure? How do you make sure cloud spend doesn’t get out of control?

Join Atos, Maven Wave, Google Cloud and a select group of retail and manufacturing thought leaders to find out, as well as to discuss how moving to the cloud can enable agility and help ensure preparedness for emergency situations.
