Today’s fast-changing business landscape has defined a new operating environment that demands real-time connectivity, frictionless data exchange and personalised customer experiences at the edge.

While traditional IT toolkits and processes struggle to keep pace with modern day business needs, organisations are leveraging the flexibility of the enterprise Cloud with embedded automated productivity tools and opportunities for omni-channel business models.

Many tech leaders have discovered that the ‘lift and shift’ approach with their existing on-premise systems often result in performance issues, unexpected breakages and minimal cost savings. How then can tech leaders realise the full benefits by adopting best practices in Cloud orchestration? How can we identify and pay close attention to critical areas for a successful Cloud migration journey?

This session brings together tech leaders and Cloud domain experts talking sharing case studies and valuable tips for industry practitioners embarking in their own Cloud transformation journeys.

This session will offer practical insights of the following areas:

  • Effective Cloud architecture design for organisations with complex legacy systems and processes
  • Achieving greater efficiencies and improving risk management by adopting a multi-cloud approach
  • Embedding security by design into enterprise Cloud transformation strategy – technology toolkits designed for Cloud-native technology operations
  • Optimising technology cost and performance through Software Defined-Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) in Cloud-enabled delivery of digital services over a distributed geographical network
