The Executive’s Guide to Application Modernization

July 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

CWO Digital and Rackspace Technology invite you to spend a summer’s evening of networking and fine wine tasting – from the comfort of your home, garden or balcony

The Executive’s Guide to Application Modernization

YOUR DIGITAL AGENDA

Spend a summer’s evening at home and in good company – with CWO DIGITAL, renowned speakers, industry peers, and a premium selection of refreshing wines.

CWO and special guest hosts Rackspace are bringing together a selection of Technology, IT, Product and Digital leaders for this exclusive virtual networking opportunity – and you’re invited! Join us to learn how to modernize your application portfolio and future-proof your organization.

Many companies are taking steps towards modernizing their applications. But more often than not, they are blocked by the complexity of public cloud technologies and modern architectures, as well as new processes and development workflows. There’s no one-size-fits-all pathway to modernization. To accelerate innovation, secure future revenue, and attract/retain employees, companies must determine the optimal combination of cloud technologies and architectural patterns for them.

At this virtual roundtable discussion and wine tasting, join other CTOs, CIOs and similar digital and technology leaders to address app modernization and discover use cases of success you can replicate. We’ll hear from Jeff DeVerter, CTO at Rackspace, on topics including serverless refactoring, container adoption, and cloud-native re-platforming as we help you identify a future-proof strategy for your application portfolio.

RSVP now and you’ll also receive a selection of fine wines to enjoy on the night! Delivered direct to your door, each wine will be introduced by an internationally renowned wine expert. You’ll then put your wine tasting skills to the test as you face off against your peers to see who will be crowned “Chief Wine Officer.” Don’t’ miss out!
