How do you harness hybrid infrastructures as a lever for business growth?

The CIO roadmap to hybrid and multi-cloud

October 22, 2019 1:00 pm EST

To maintain relevance in the marketplace, businesses must evolve their operational and business models through several lenses. And one of these lenses is technology. Companies are increasingly using digital technology to drive nimble innovation, find better ways of working, adopt inventive business models, and deliver engaging new customer experiences.

As such, the CIO has become a strategic part of the business because the market differentiation axis is now expressed by a company’s ability to leverage technology solutions. From SaaS to PaaS, on-prem to public, containers and Kubernetes, we’re living in a hybrid, multi-cloud world. And understanding what those technology models mean for your business – and how you can capitalize – is critical.

What is needed is a realistic roadmap that ties IT strategy to business strategy, and identifies the people, processes and technologies required of each stage of the hybrid cloud journey so that CIOs can confidently move toward a multi-cloud operating model. The question is, what does that look like in the context of your own transformation journey? And what considerations do you need to look at in order to plan and implement it successfully? Join Meet the Boss, VMware and a number of your industry peers on this virtual roundtable discussion to find out.
