CWO : DIGITAL, Rackspace and VMware present a virtual experience – with real wine

Initiating Virtual Discussions for Integrating Multi-Cloud Success

WHAT’S ON THE DIGITAL AGENDA

This July, join CWO: Digital, Rackspace and VMware for our exclusive virtual format, where you’ll be part of an evening like no other. From the comfort of your own home, prepare to take part in industry-leading conversations with executives and C-suite peers exploring how to integrate and achieve multi-cloud success. Under the guidance of one of only 395* Masters of Wine, you’ll also enjoy a virtual wine tasting – with real wines delivered straight to your door.

At this exclusive virtual event, discover why it’s essential to modernize your legacy applications and data centres, implementing a multi-cloud approach that works for you. Learn why you need to get rid of old processes, replacing them with cost-effective solutions that increase agility and focus on the core of your business. You’ll also hear how to customize your cloud, ensuring it continually adapts to fit your entire cloud life-cycle.

Two industry guest speakers (Jeff DeVerter, CTO at Rackspace & Amanda Blevins, Senior Director and Chief Technologist, Office of the CTO at VMware) will discuss why it’s important to innovate now to future-proof your business for multi-cloud success, unveiling the best practices for accelerating your cloud journey. Ultimately, putting you in the best position to ensure business continuity despite an ever-changing marketplace.

Alongside the thought-provoking business insight from leaders in cloud and transformation, you’ll have an opportunity to network virtually, connecting with C-suite peers and discussing how to overcome challenges and equip your enterprise with cloud. The evening will end with some light-hearted competition, as one lucky guest will be crowned the enviable title of Chief Wine Officer.

Business continues and so must interactive events such as this. We hope you can join virtually, to join your peers in exploring and contributing to the future of work.

Thank you to the CWO team and sponsors for a great evening. I look forward to following up with the new contacts you allowed me to meet and will keep an eye out for future events of interest.
Excellent event, and nice balance of business content, networking and learning about wine.
