Rumour has it that CIOs and CTOs from some of the UK’s leading organisations will be meeting together in the City of London next week for a specially convened roundtable focusing on their IT strategies.
Smart421 has reserved a major City of London venue to host this exclusive roundtable, designed to enable these leaders to learn from each other as well as to discuss their challenges with subject area experts on Cloud computing, including directors of AWS and our own CTO, Robin Meehan (who contributes regularly to this blog).
Senior executives share a common purpose – to drive their strategy forward and reinforce their leadership positions in their respective markets through embracing the new “art of the possible” where advances in technologies enable them to do so.
We will present that argument in the context of the specialised area of infrastructure as a service (IaaS). IaaS is a layer of Cloud computing that seems far less sexy than the more visible SaaS front end. However, for those that possess the know how, it offers a set of enterprise-grade technical solutions that large business want to harness.
Expected discussion topics will include business continuity planning, disaster recovery (BCP/DR), “big data” analytics and service management in the Cloud.
You heard it first here…. (we’ll keep you posted).
