Two core themes


Digital transformation and new business requirements are driving change in today's organisations, forcing them to rethink service delivery to users and customers alike. The question is: how does business support these requirements while getting to grips with the new technologies, and find the balance between risk and benefit? This track will look at these trends and challenges, and find ways to harness or meet them.


Today's IT infrastructures are unrecognisable from those of a few years ago. Edge computing, IOT and big data have all changed the game, and IT leaders need to prepare for the 'as a service' world, where applications, workloads and infrastructure must be accessible wherever they are needed. This track will look at these trends in delivery models, and what is needed to support and deploy them.
