IDC Infrastructure Future of Infrastructure: The digital future is built on Cloud

In-Person Event | Stockholm | November 17, 2022

Overview

The future of digital infrastructure is cloud in all its forms: private, hybrid and multicloud including edge. To use cloud successfully, organizations need to align their digital infrastructure with their business strategy and master 7 aspects of cloud:

1. Digital innovation and industry cloud
How do you build new digital products and services on your cloud platforms? How do you drive innovation in your industry and exchange data with customers and partners? How do you develop and run cloud-native applications in the most efficient way?

2. Application modernization

What is the right strategy for each application type? What should you do about ERP and mainframe workloads?

3. Data
How do you manage your data from the edge to the cloud in hybrid and multicloud architectures?

4. Intelligent CloudOps
How do you operate and govern a complex edge to cloud environment? How do you keep costs under control with CloudFinOps?

5. Skills
Should you develop skills internally or buy them through a managed service?

6. Digital sovereignty and regulations
What is coming down the line in terms of regulations and how can you execute on it?

7. Sustainability
How can you optimize your digital infrastructure for sustainability and how does the move to cloud help with sustainability accounting?


The move to cloud is no longer just a technology decision but increasingly a business decision that has a huge transformational potential for the entire organization. Strategy, skills, and culture are just as important for success as choosing the right technologies.

Change is the only certainty in IT, and to be ready to cope with change, future digital Infrastructure will need to be able to identify, analyze and respond to shifting requirements with minimal or no human intervention, in order to deliver at scale. The future of digital infrastructure will be a new way of looking at how to build, operate and enhance IT infrastructure in an integrated stack that is focused on application delivery, resiliency and flexibility.

 

Join & be inspired!


The conference will be held in Stockholm on the 17th of November 2022, bringing together IT professionals to:

  • Share experiences.
  • Be inspired on how to build business success on the Cloud.
  • Discuss the management trends, challenges, and technology building blocks in enabling successful hybrid multicloud environments.
