IBM Cloud Webinar

Managing Workloads and Ensuring Business Continuity

United Arab Emirates, June 4, 2020


While the COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented levels of disruption to the region, it has also highlighted the critical role of cloud in ensuring business continuity. Indeed, digital transformation-savvy organizations are experiencing the least disruption as they were far better prepared to face the challenges that lay in wait.

COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are being relaxed by governments, and companies are enabling a "return to office" option for employees. As the situation continues to evolve, more and more enterprises will look to rethink their business continuity strategies, with an eye on stabilizing their critical infrastructure and improving their response to unforeseen events.

IDC's research shows that cloud computing is gaining momentum across the Middle East region, with more companies investing in cloud services and cloud technology to secure a competitive edge. As more and more businesses adjust to the new challenges of enabling a remote workforce, IBM Cloud can help build a culture that brings business, development, and operations together for improved responsiveness to market demands.

 Join us to learn about IT resiliency and business continuity in an era of pandemic and continuous disruption. IDC will also review industry trends and provide you with an opportunity to look at the ways companies can "clean up" cluttered cloud landscapes and use continuous integration to speed up innovation and business transformation.
