Cloud is the future of digital infrastructure. Over 90% of European organizations IDC surveyed intend to change their long-term IT strategy in the wake of the pandemic with an aggressive push to the cloud for business continuity, resiliency, and reducing operational overheads.

IDC estimates that by the end of 2021, 80% of enterprises will put a mechanism in place to shift to cloud-centric digital infrastructure twice as fast as before the pandemic.

Cloud has completely reset people's expectations from IT and there is tremendous pressure on IT leaders to modernize applications. However, operational and governance concerns such as data residency, security and compliance, cost control, and eliminating infrastructure silos are growing too limiting mass migration of workloads to a cloud destination.

Organizations that want to leverage cloud in their recovery journey to truly build digital resilience without compromising on compliance or costs are evaluating cloud-centric strategies and a new breed of cloud-centric technologies. The hallmarks of a modern, cloud-centric architecture are that they are software-defined, API-driven, automated, scalable and opex-based but also deliver next-gen security, automated management, data residency, integration, and eliminate need to develop new skills or refactor applications.

Such a strategy can help organizations take a consistent, secure, and long-term view to building digital resiliency, accelerating digital transformation, and ensure security and cost optimization.

Join IDC, Oracle and a select group of your peers on 25th November at 10am for a dynamic and interactive virtual roundtable to discuss how to improve digital resiliency, security and speed of your business both from business and technology perspectives.


During the webinar we will discuss:

  • Delivering the digital resiliency imperatives – Speed, security, simplicity, choice, and flexibility are all important. How can IT and business leaders achieve this without compromising on budgets, skills, and data protection? 
  • Determining the right cloud strategy for you – whilst hybrid multicloud is prevalent in 85% of enterprises, every organization's hybrid cloud mix looks different. Not everyone has the resources in place to manage infrastructure, re-architect their applications to suit the cloud destination, or managing digital trust, regulatory compliance, data governance.
  • Best practices in becoming a resilient and trusted Future Digital Enterprise by exploring the technology building blocks that can help in near-term and sustained resiliency
