19th October 2021 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm EST
Lost In the Clouds? How to create a competitive advantage in the marketplace through the IT estate

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by IBM

Companies are no longer strictly competing for market share; they are competing to build their vision of the future faster than the competition. Success will depend on their ability to master change in all parts of their business, which in turn will be a direct function of the technology decisions you make today.

Hybrid cloud is becoming an enabler of innovation as enterprises look to create future value for their customers. The challenge is that cloud adoption is not just about how you adapt technology but how your business needs to change to take advantage of that technology.

So, how can we create a competitive advantage in the marketplace through our IT estate? How can we reduce data complexity and storage by moving or managing IT workloads away from the data centre? And how can we implement next generation tech like: AI, Edge computing or IoT?

Join IBM and a select group of industry peers to discuss your own challenges on moving to, and building within the cloud and explore ways to adopt an agile or DevOps approach to increase innovation.

Discussion Topics

The most common factors that impede an organization from realizing the full value potential of moving to the cloud
How the cloud landscape is changing to make moving workloads to the cloud easier
The top workloads to move to cloud, the top workloads to repatriate to on-premises
