IT Governance vs Maximum Innovation

YOUR DIGITAL AGENDA

On behalf of CWO : DIGITAL and Rackspace, you’re invited to a unique virtual networking and business experience to explore challenges and opportunities faced by CIOs when migrating legacy workloads to the cloud. Join us for this digital event all while sampling a selection of the finest wines delivered directly to your door. Interact with industry experts and your peers to discuss the problem of cloud governance, all from the comfort of your own home.

IT has seen a revolutionary transformation over the past decade, with cloud computing changing the way organisations work and how they serve customers. For those who fail to adopt the cloud, an existential crisis awaits. But adopting and managing the cloud is a challenge in its own right, especially when it comes to migrating complex legacy workloads without damaging security or performance. The right governance model is needed, but how do you implement the right policies and processes without damaging your business agility?

That’s why Rackspace commissioned CIONET to interview a selection of UK-based CIOs and uncover their challenges with business innovation in the cloud. At this evening’s event, we’ll hear from Roger Camrass, Director of CIONET UK, as he shares the unique insights CIONET gathered and compiled in the Cloud Governance Playbook for 2020 report. Insights from 10 major organisations interviewed and the CIONET UK community of 7,000 digital leaders include:

• Common challenges encountered in cloud migration
• Performance optimisation in a multi-cloud world
• Compliance, security and regulatory factors that CIOs engage with most
• Service integration for multi-cloud working
• And more…

Discover more and hear the expert insights from our guest speaker by registering today. In addition to world-class talks delivered direct to your computer screen via an HD video conferencing platform, you’ll also get to network with your peers and discuss cloud strategy. Enjoy all this over several glasses of the finest wines, introduced by Master of Wine Peter McCombie, who will lead a wine tasting competition. Limited to 15 guests only, accept your invite to this virtual networking experience now.

Business must continue and we’re delighted to enable this through our interactive events. We hope you can join us virtually for the discussion!

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.
