VMware CIO Exchange Roundtable | Cairo

Empowering Digital Transformation

Cairo, January 22, 2019


Digital business requires a digital foundation that unlocks value from today's technologies — a growing landscape of public cloud services, datacenter resources, mobile devices, and smart "things" — as well as from new technologies that haven't been invented yet.

A secure, flexible digital foundation allows organizations to deliver any app to any device, accelerating digital transformation while reducing technology complexity, cost, and risk. And because IT sits at the core of this transformation, the business is looking to you — the CIOs and top IT leaders — to establish the right digital foundation to respond to new opportunities and threats.

Join us for this exclusive roundtable discussion on building a foundation for digital business. We'll explore how digital transformation can create new possibilities for your business and explain what IT strategies are needed to turn those possibilities into reality.

Engage in the conversation. Connect with your peers. Explore the possibilities.
