Multi-Cloud: delivering digital innovation at the speed of business
Are you one of the 93% of organisations working across multiple clouds? How are you ensuring the seamless delivery of data, applications and workflows across those environments? And where do you need to improve in order to increase business agility?
Now more than ever, business agility and innovation are about enabling the speed of business. This requires organisations to deliver applications and data across many environments – typically disparate, and increasingly across multiple clouds. Today, every organisation needs to be a digital organisation, powered by data, running in a Multi-Cloud world.
What this means is that today’s IT leaders must radically reassess their methods of delivering technology. Coupled with edge computing, the key driver behind Multi-Cloud is to deliver compute and apps everywhere, at unimaginable scale. Indeed, Forrester has shown that more than 93% of customers will deploy workloads across two or more clouds today.
However, multi-cloud is not a destination. It is a journey to creating a digital foundation. This demands a globally consistent set of operations over a globally consistent architecture. Only with a strong foundation can we begin to deliver a flexible set of platforms that truly drive innovation. That innovation is increasingly being driven from outside of traditional IT, and demanded in apps for users and customers alike.
This brave new world of digital innovation demands business agility. And ensuring your organisation is equipped to meet that challenge is what this Co.Lab Series event aims to do. What are the keys to success when it comes to delivering greater agility and innovation? Why are the use of “application-first principals” critical to creating this digital foundation? And how can a true Multi-Cloud methodology securely and flexibly deliver on the ever-increasing expectations of your business and its customers? Join us to find out.
