The evolution of cloud service and application delivery

4th December 2020 | 11:00am - 12:30pm ET
How will your business adapt to the disaggregation of the cloud?

The current climate has organizations worldwide innovating at speed and accelerating their journey to the cloud. This has created a high demand for distributed cloud-based applications.

According to Nokia, at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic “cloud providers experienced up to 600% growth in application usage, while network providers carried 40% more traffic in a week.” Both cloud providers and enterprise teams were faced with scaling the cloud quickly to deliver these applications as businesses saw a dramatic increase in remote workers because of shelter-at-home orders.

Many businesses adapted successfully to the new normal and learned much from the experience. Post-pandemic, meeting the needs of the business will continue to be challenging, particularly when delivering new distributed cloud-based applications – such as 5G, IoT, and Industry 4.0.

As we navigate our businesses through these uncertain times, there is added urgency to respond quickly to changing business needs by successfully leveraging cloud technologies, implementing new operational approaches, and adopting multi-cloud strategies.

Join Nokia thought leaders and a select group of your industry peers to share your experiences explore the challenges of managing the new normal and discuss how best to prepare your business for the post-pandemic cloud.
