CWO : DIGITAL and Micro Focus present a virtual experience – with real wine

Transforming Application Delivery in a New Digital Economy

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

CWO : DIGITAL and Micro Focus are excited to invite you to what is sure to be an immersive experience. We’ll be mixing business with pleasure and melding the physical and digital by sending you complimentary wines straight to your door. Lock in for a virtual wine tasting experience guided by Master of Wine Peter McCombie as we bring you face-to-face with C-suite peers and senior executives for industry-leading conversations.

Today, it’s imperative that organizations accelerate the development of new products, services and business models and create new ways for citizens and businesses to interact in their daily lives. With greater pressure to drive software innovation, application delivery teams must accelerate and adapt to meet existing and new demands. During this interactive and informative virtual event, we’ll discuss how teams can effectively transform and leverage existing capabilities to further keep pace. You’ll also hear real-life experiences drawn in the company of customers and application delivery experts to help highlight challenges and understand practical solutions.

During the evening, guest speaker Archie Roboostoff will share first-hand experiences of how to drive software innovation and pave the way for building and delivering better software, faster. You’ll also learn how you can implement a high-speed approach with minimal risk to ensure business continuity today, tomorrow and in the future.

Alongside this stimulating business insight, we’ll connect you with application delivery experts providing the unique opportunity for you to network online and discuss how you can enable more agile innovation to bridge the gap between existing and emerging technologies.

Places are limited to 15 guests only, so save your spot now for an unmissable evening. You’ll leave equipped with the tools you need to build robust and secure software that withstands the test of time. Capping off the evening will be our Master of Wine Peter McCombie who’ll bring your palate to test, questioning your wine knowledge with a light-hearted quiz. Finally, our host will crown one avid listener the highly coveted title of “Chief Wine Officer”.
