VMware Exchange 2020 Online: Lead Forward

17th August 2020 | 3:00pm BST
How do you adapt your application landscape for a cloud and digital-first world?

More applications are expected to be deployed in the next five years than in the last four decades.

And in what’s become a digital-first world, the very preservation and competitiveness of your business is dependent on delivering those apps that differentiate your organisation and enhance your internal and external customers’ experience. Never has the need to be able to react and adapt to market conditions and mobilise employees and operations been more profound.

Yet according to new research from Forrester, 48% of businesses have not improved their app portfolio in more than a year. So, why is this? And how do we bridge the gap?

Join VMware’s Executive Exchange 2020 Online – hosted by Ian Andrews, VP Modern Applications, and Kit Colbert, VP & CTO, Cloud Platforms – to explore how to adapt to a new digital-first norm. The pair will showcase new, global executive research findings from Forrester Consulting, and discuss the alignment of skills, leadership and technology needed to create great user experiences in a digital-first world – both now and in the longer term.

Hear from VMware experts, supported with new, global research findings from Forrester Consulting. Listen to real-world stories from peers who are innovating and transforming. And discover how you can develop a robust app strategy to deliver any app, on any cloud, any device, today and tomorrow.

Discussion Topics

How do you adapt and accelerate time-to-market for new services and apps? Is your app strategy helping or hindering your ability to mobilise?
How do you transform how you build, run, manage, connect and secure your apps? And does your team have the right skill set to deliver a differentiated customer experience in a modern app world?
How can hybrid cloud, enabled by a digital foundation, support the traditional and cloud native apps you need to compete? And how do you prepare for what’s coming next?
