The CIOs Future Vision for the Digital Core — Adopting Application First Infrastructure

With the rapid pace of change set to continue through the second half of 2021, CIOs are asking if they can achieve organisational goals with their current digital transformation projects. To do this, CIOs need to enable an intelligent core to be digitally agile, and adopting multiple clouds and cloud native applications can help ensure flexibility and modernisation. Yet ongoing operational complexity and security implications can slow the full impact of an application-first strategy, putting pressure on IT. This discussion will look to address those challenges to ensure your cloud strategy enables resilience, innovation and modernisation. Specifically, you will discuss:

  • The common obstacles of a Hybrid Cloud strategy and how to overcome them
  • Modernising applications to deliver a more simplified app-first infrastructure
  • Utilising emerging technology to deliver secure, application first infrastructure that helps to break down organisational silos
