Venue: The Frankfurter Hof
84% of CEOs have serious digital ambitions for their organisation. 42% are demanding their company be ‘digital-first’ or ‘digital to the core’, says Gartner’s 2017 CEO survey. Now is the time for CIOs to fuel digital business transformation.
We know digital agility is a must for all businesses to improve customer outcomes, and we know the best way to achieve this agility is through a cloud-first strategy. The problem? We also know that big businesses come with big technology – complex, mission-critical applications that keep factories running, engines turning and commerce moving – and those applications weren’t always designed to run in the cloud.
Join a select gathering of senior technology executives and digital thought leaders for one essential evening dedicated to one critical conversation: how do you take your enterprise grade applications to the cloud today, quickly and efficiently, to better enable a competitive, agile, digital-first enterprise?
