IDC and TATA Communications Executive Dinner

Driving Business Growth with a Secure, Agile and Resilient Communications Network

In Association with
IDC and Tata Communications invite you to join us at the Ivy Market Grill in London on March 29, 2023, where we will discuss how modern digital businesses depend on an ecosystem of applications and services spread across public, private and hybrid clouds (multicloud) that all need to be linked together with an adaptable, secure, reliable, and cost-effective communications network that can change as fast as your business does.
Do you have the feeling that your business is having to cope with too many people, in too many places, trying to access too many apps in too many locations? The pace of change of business is relentless, and it seems like we're running hard just to stand still.

The shift to predominantly digital business models, increasing use of public, private and hybrid clouds, and the move to more hybrid working is creating a much more dynamic digital environment that needs flexible infrastructure and connectivity to support the business in developing innovative new products, services and business models.
IDC's 2022 European Infrastructure Survey shows that the top quarter of companies that successfully manage this are growing their revenues much more strongly than the rest of the market. In fact, 17% of these Digital Leaders increased their revenue by more than 10%, compared to just 8% for rest of the market. Investing in agile infrastructure pays for itself!

We can't keep trying to make IT work using traditional infrastructure and networking architectures. It is taking too long and is turning out to be too costly to be viable in the ultra-competitive and agile digital marketplace. But if the old ways are not cutting it anymore, what exactly should we be doing?
Why Attend?
IDC’s invitation-only, complimentary, Executive Dinners are designed to be a small-scale, personal, and interactive gathering, with sufficient time for you to connect with like-minded industry peers. The structure of our event aims to be simple and effective - starting at 6.30pm and ending at 9.30pm, with discussions being held over a three-course dinner and champagne reception.
