Cloudhealth by VMware.
Join us for Blue-Sky Thinking, a new virtual discussion hosted by The Economist Events. Tech leaders will outline lessons learned from the covid 19 pandemic, including best practices and how to redesign businesses around cloud-based strategies.
Covid-19 has highlighted the need for corporations to be agile and quick to adapt to unexpected shocks. Although digitisation was well underway before the outbreak, covid-19 changed how companies use cloud-based platforms and services.
Digital technologies played a crucial role in keeping the lights on, enabling remote working, and ensuring companies met the needs of their communities.
As uncertainty continues about how long covid-19 will linger, organisations must continue to pursue resilience and agility. Decision-makers will have tough choices to make about resources, budgets and suitable governance frameworks. A close eye must be kept on business needs, costs and performance so technology investments deliver clear value. Cyber-security must stay high on the agenda, especially as hackers and savvy criminals get better at breaching firewalls and safeguards. The to-do list is long and daunting: where to start?
Our virtual event will ask:
What lessons have been learned from covid-19?
How do approaches differ based on company size, industry, and geography?
How do benefits compare to the costs across a business?
What are the organisational structures and talent needed to deliver value?
What are the key metrics for evaluating success?
