Cloud-first strategies are accelerating transformation at unprecedented speeds, and tech leaders are making critical decisions to secure maximum value and a scalable future for their cloud capabilities. Many are turning to containerisation – a trend that continues to dominate the market, with Gartner predicting that 85% of companies will have containers running in production by 2025.
You’re invited to join the table with your peers to explore the possibilities from championing an application-centric approach, to eliminating barriers between data centres and clouds, and staying on top of ever-evolving data landscapes. The insights at this event are not to be missed.
We’re also treating our guests to a trio of premium wines, expertly presented by one of the just 419 Masters of Wine. Prepare to learn, and also to compete: Peter McCombie will wrap up the event by hosting a strike-out wine tasting competition, where you’ll be in with a chance of being crowned the evening’s ‘Chief Wine Officer’!
We’re inviting just 15 senior IT leaders to shape the discussions at this exclusive event. This is an unmissable chance to share challenges and opportunities with like-minded executives, expand your professional network, and learn from thought leaders in the cloud architectures space. Reserve your space and wine delivery today.
