Maximise Your Modernisation Journey in the Cloud

February 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm

We’re combining our experience in the physical and digital spaces to bring Chief Wine Officer to your door.
The networking continues!

CWO : DIGITAL and MICRO FOCUS present a virtual experience – with real wine

Maximise Your Modernisation Journey in the Cloud

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

Chief Wine Officer, Micro Focus and Accenture are hosting an exclusive virtual business discussion, networking and wine tasting event – and you’re invited! You’ll receive a luxurious selection of fine wines direct to your door to enjoy throughout the evening. All while discussing how mainframe users can improve business agility, app functionality and client satisfaction through application and cloud modernisation.

In 2020, the global pandemic highlighted the startling lack of investment in key infrastructure among supposedly world-leading organisations. What followed was a rapid acceleration of digital transformation efforts – efforts that are still ongoing. But the haphazard nature of those transformations failed to deliver the outcomes C-Suite leaders expected.

Fortunately, there’s a better way forward.

By reusing, not replacing, relevant existing technologies, some organisations are moving along their transformation journeys faster than their competitors. These mainframe users are protecting and using their core systems in new ways and increasing their app and data value by leveraging the cloud and containers to drive new business. This is your chance to find out how.

On 4th February 2021, join Chief Wine Officer, Micro Focus and Accenture to learn how mainframe users and transformation leaders like you are bringing greater value to modernisation solutions. We’ll show you how to reduce costs and risk by enhancing agility and functionality. Each attendee will also receive fine wines to sample throughout the evening, each introduced by an internationally renowned wine expert. Then, face off against your new business connections in a light-hearted wine-related competition to see who will take home the coveted title of “Chief Wine Officer”. Don’t miss out!
