Overview

2020 was a very unpredictable and volatile year, with rapid changes in how we lived our lives and did business. Uber, for example, started the year as a leading digital ride-hailing and payment company; it ended it as mainly a take-out food delivery company. Adaptability has been the key to survival and success. But for many companies, rigid and inflexible IT has made coping with change a major challenge.

While we can move some workloads readily to the public cloud, the reality is that many applications are already developed and delivering value, and just lifting and shifting is not the answer.

What is needed is a new and modern approach to building and running IT, one that delivers the agility and flexibility the business needs not just to survive, but to thrive. And this must be implemented with the management and security required to successfully adapt to the modern reality of a mainly digital approach to engaging with customers, suppliers, partners, and employees.

 

Discussion Points:

- What is needed to deliver an agile IT infrastructure?

- How do we improve security after such major and rapid changes in how apps and services are accessed?

- How do we ensure that our public cloud services can integrate and communicate seamlessly with our existing application ecosystem?
