Cut Through Cloud Migration Complexity

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

This is your exclusive invitation to join CWO : DIGITAL and Rackspace Technology for a virtual networking event like no other. As you enjoy the selection of fine wines we’ll deliver straight to your door, we’ll provide the insights to help you cut through the complexity of managing a cloud migration and accelerate your journey to the cloud. Reserve your place today!

In response to the events of last year, organisations are now facing increasing market disruption from players that are already using cloud native technologies for greater agility. Supporting continued growth means undergoing a significant digital transformation project underpinned by the cloud.

To remain agile, senior IT leaders must seek modern infrastructure in order to leverage cutting edge cloud technologies and enable innovation. This starts with a successful cloud migration.

Join us and discover:

  • Insights and thought leadership from Rackspace Technology’s CTO Simon Bennett who’ll recount the success of customer Aramex after they saw 30-40% growth in ecommerce volumes while scaling during a pandemic – and how you can achieve the same!
  • Key migration topics such as data centre exit and cloud strategy.
  • How you can accelerate your journey to the cloud while minimising risk and improving operational efficiency.

Riveting insights aren’t the only thing on offer at this CWO : DIGITAL and Rackspace Technology event. You’ll be joined by wine expert, Jane Parkinson who’ll take you on a whistle-stop tour of some of finest wines we’ll deliver straight to your door. Prepare to put your newfound wine knowledge to the test as you go head-to-head against your peers and compete for the coveted title: Chief Wine Officer!
