You’re invited to an exclusive event to explore the new era of data for business transformation. Alongside a select group of IT, data and applications leaders and dedicated experts from Pure Storage, you’ll enjoy interactive discussions and networking, plus a spot of fine wine tasting to top off the virtual experience! We hope you can join us.
2020 was a reality check on the data front. Today’s IT leaders need to support a record range of applications and workflows to enter the next level of digital transformation. But 57% say their current storage system makes it difficult to share data across the enterprise, according to a recent survey by Harvard Business Review. How should you manage and store the data that underpins the scale, performance and flexibility promised by modern applications and workflows?
You’re invited to discuss this critical question with your peers and experts at this invite-only event. You’ll explore the top six data-related challenges leaders are facing today, including how to leverage modern data architectures to support business-critical attributes like competitive customer experiences and heightened security. And you’ll spark relationships with like-minded leaders as you share your own experiences, discussing challenges and opportunities as you map out the path to digital business success through modern data infrastructures.
And that’s not all. You’ll also enjoy an array of premium wines under the guidance of a world-renowned wine expert, before putting your skills to the test in a competition to prove yourself the best taster in the room. Are you ready to challenge your taste buds and become the next ‘Chief Wine Officer’? RSVP to secure your space today!
