Interconnection, Adaptation, Innovation: Computing at the Edge

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

Chief Wine Officer and Equinix invite you to join your C-level peers at an exclusive virtual event on Wednesday 26th August. Join us for a unique evening of fine wines, networking and expert discussion. Our guest speakers will share their unique views on interconnection, accelerated digital transformation, and how businesses have used technology to rally in the face of adversity.

Our guest speaker, Ather Gattami, will also be sharing his insights into the roles artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) plays in this new age of business operations, one that relies on edge computing and many-to-many secure connections across the enterprise cloud portfolio.

With an interconnection-first approach to getting digital-ready, we are seeing organisations;

  • Stay agile with fast, scalable network connectivity
  • Improve online connectivity in minutes to support employees working from home
  • Stay securely connected, wherever business and employees are
  • Going virtual for greater flexibility and scale
  • Optimise multi-cloud connectivity

Throughout this digital event, C-level and C-1 attendees will have the opportunity to partake in relevant business discussions, network with their peers and discover innovative cloud strategies.

World-class insights aren’t the only thing on offer at this CWO and Equinix event. RSVP to book one of just 15 seats and we’ll deliver a selection of fine wines straight to your door for you to enjoy alongside fellow attendees. As part of the entertaining and educational experience, you’ll also be invited to take part in the world-renowned Chief Wine Officer competition, where you’ll compete against your peers to see who will be crowned the ultimate grand slam title – Chief Wine Officer!
