Overview

As customer expectations and technology continue to evolve at an unprecedented rate, the move to cloud is becoming a strategic priority for organizations across the region. According to IDC research, 49% of CIOs across the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa believe that cloud adoption will greatly influence their plans to drive innovation and create new digital products, business models, and revenue streams over the next 12-18 months.

To ensure the most efficient implementation process possible, IT teams must take a holistic look at their cloud operating models. IT has become integral to driving business value and is now a crucial enabler for meeting business and customer expectations around speed, flexibility, cost, and reliability.

Cloud deployments will undoubtedly help organizations improve their operational efficiency over the long term, particularly those that have not yet fully optimized their technology environments. Indeed, those organizations that find themselves further down the transformation road are already realizing multiple benefits, including faster time to market, simplified innovation, easier scalability, and reduced risk. Organizations that get their operating model right can expect to see dramatic improvements in terms of target-state economics and transition costs.

Against this backdrop, the IDC Cloud Roadshow 2022 will explore how organizations can capture the inherent value of cloud by reimagining the IT infrastructure that underpins the cloud operating model. Join regional and global experts as we explain how your organization can build the right infrastructure to unleash its true innovation potential.

IDC Keynote: Delivering Enterprise Level Agility in the Cloud Era

Nagia El-Emary

Country Director (Egypt) & Senior Consultant (MEA), IDC

Today’s organizations looking to digitally transform are forced to weigh cost controls vs. business agility. Despite corporate decision makers finding a clear link between cloud computing and business agility, the main concern is still cost savings rather than potential benefits. This session will cut through the hype and present the facts about what cloud can really deliver to both IT and the organization as a whole.

 

10:15

Hybrid Data Management Across Multiple Clouds

As public clouds mature from a mere technological novelty to an established business platform in a relatively short period of time, the value of data to an organization’s bottom-line increases. To optimally put data to use, executives need the right tools and techniques for managing data in a safe and effective manner, no matter where that data resides.

 

 

10:30

Datacenter Optimization Within a Transition to Cloud

More than ever, datacenters must evolve to provide the agility and efficiency that accelerate business growth. Powerful technologies already exist to facilitate rapid service delivery such as cloud, high-performance computing, and big data analytics. These technologies provide huge opportunities for organizations, helping them transform their data center infrastructure to meet the requirements of today’s business while laying the groundwork for a next-generation data center that supports even greater business innovation and efficiency.

 

10:45

Managing Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

Hybrid cloud management makes efficient use of public cloud hardware resources in data center administration or web hosting. Hybrid cloud management permits IT professionals in complex business organizations to procure the lowest costs on hardware resources through competitive bidding across platforms. Learn more about SDN hybrid cloud management software that enhances data security, guarantees continual uptime, and ensures the continuity of business services.

Future Intelligence: Putting Hyperscale Analytics to Work 

Hyperscale is the ability of an IT system or architecture to scale exponentially and rapidly to respond to demand that is increasingly heavily. With hyperscale datacenters, enterprises can replace individual physical components as opposed to replacing the entire server. This approach gives extreme flexibility in scaling at the physical level, as components can be added modularly. Learn more about how hyperscale datacenters are changing the game from the way hardware components are sourced to the way they are designed.

 

 

11:15

Cloud Is the Gateway to All Things DX

In today’s digital world, the benefits of cloud are increasingly being recognized by organizations across the region. Indeed, there is growing consensus that cloud is the springboard for any successful digital transformation journey. Join this session and learn more about the benefits of cloud computing and how it has transformed doing business. Be it flexibility, agility, speed, balance, scale, shared applications and services, business continuity and disaster recovery, cloud architectures have become a key component in organizational survival and gaining a competitive edge.

Re-Think Cloud, Be Cloud Smart
