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 RACKSPACE TECHNOLOGY present a virtual experience – with real wine

Cloud Migration for Improved Agility, Flexibility & Responsiveness

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

Join CWO : DIGITAL and special host Rackspace for a virtual networking experience and discover how you can ensure a smooth cloud migration to future-proof your business for the decade ahead. You’ll be joined by expert speakers, industry-leading peers and a dedicated wine expert, all whilst enjoying a selection of fine wines we’ll deliver straight to your door!

As the technology landscape continues to evolve, organisations that rely solely on traditional IT infrastructure are struggling to keep up with their competitors. Why? Because it hampers engineering teams from being able to provide the agility, flexibility and responsiveness their businesses need to thrive. As a result, organisations across all industries are investing in cloud solutions. By streamlining and optimising operations, updating go-to-market strategies and modernising applications, IT leaders can arm their workforce with the tools they need to perform effectively and efficiently.

Reserve you place around this interactive roundtable and join expert speaker Paul Traynor, Client Engagement Director, Rackspace Technology to learn how you can overcome the common obstacles to cloud migration and accelerate your digital transformation. Discover the benefits of moving to a cloud like Microsoft Azure which provides all the tools you need to ensure operational success. Join us and you’ll also gain:

  • Knowledge on key cloud migration topics, such as data centre exit and cloud strategy.
  • How To’s on accelerating your journey to the cloud while minimising risk and improving operational efficiency.
  • Insights and thought leadership from Rackspace Technology’s executives who’ll recount the success of customer migrations including British Heart Foundation

All attendee will also receive fine wines to sample throughout the evening, each introduced by internationally renowned wine expert Sam Capron. Armed with your new-found knowledge, prepare to face off against your peers in a light-hearted wine-related competition to see who will take home the coveted title of “Chief Wine Officer”!
