Cloud… Elevate to Innovate

 

Overcoming the challenges of cloud migration and benefits of moving to the AWS platform

The hybrid cloud ecosystem is evolving to a point where private cloud, public cloud co-exist with on-premise IT infrastructure. 80% organizations in the Middle East are expected to have more than one cloud platform by the end of 2021. Lack of talent availability and inability to create a cloud adoption road map are on-going challenges. Working with a qualified cloud partner to plan out your cloud journey and accelerate the milestones can avoid typical pitfalls and generate better ROI.

Join us for an in-person roundtable at Dubai’s premier golfing arena “The Top Golf”, and compete with your peers in golf strokes while networking with cloud solutions specialists from AWS and Zero&One, and consulting company IDC.

Hybrid Cloud: The Platform for Innovation in the Next Normal

IDC is observing an evolution of a Hybrid ecosystem where private cloud, public cloud will coexist with on-premise IT infrastructure. IDC predicts that 80% organizations in the Middle East will have more than one cloud by the end of 2021. While there are benefits of cloud adoption, a few challenges such as lack of talent availability and inability of organizations to create a cloud adoption road map are also seen to be emerging. This essentially calls for a structured and thought-out approach to take the cloud journey to avoid any pitfalls and challenges that might outweigh the benefits.

IDC’s Keynote session will highlight the trends of cloud adoption and provide the audience with practical insights that can be applied in your IT environment.
