The Modern Cloud: Driving an Evolution in IT Operations

YOUR DIGITAL AGENDA

CWO Digital and Rackspace Technology invite you to an evening of virtual networking, fine wines and riveting business discussion. Alongside industry experts and senior peers, you’ll discuss why it’s no longer enough to simply “be in the cloud.”

Today, businesses are under pressure to use cloud technologies to solve strategic problems, build new revenue streams, and decrease costs. With the pace of innovation accelerating like never before, they need to transform how they operate in the cloud, and evolve to a cloud native approach. As organizations pursue this evolution, they need more than just support. These organizations need help understanding how to scale their IT organization in an agile world, how to transform their environments, and how to streamline their operating models.

Take your place around this virtual roundtable and join Tolga Tarhan (Chief Technology Officer, Rackspace Technology), Jeff DeVerter (Chief Technology Evangelist), AWS, and 15 of your senior industry peers to discuss how IT organizations can break down the traditional build and operate barriers and open up new possibilities to accelerate innovation.

To compliment the business discussion, you’ll receive a selection of fine wines direct to your door prior to the event. On the night, a dedicated wine expert will be on hand to talk to you through each bottle before putting your palates to the test in some light-hearted wine-related competition. Will you walk away with the ultimate title of ‘Chief Wine Officer’?

You will be joining senior leaders from companies including Hogan Lovells, Citizens Bank, White Clarke Group and ADP.
