IT leaders in Singapore are invited to join this roundtable discussion on ‘Maximising cloud to drive agility and optimise operations’.

An expert moderator will guide the knowledge-sharing event, stimulating discussion between participants in a closed, confidential environment. Attendance is by invitation only and complimentary. Registration is limited to a select number of guests per event.

Maximising cloud to drive agility and optimise operations

Organisations are transitioning from on-premise workloads to VMware cloud-based infrastructure, solutions, and services, as agile cloud technology becomes a larger factor for success. The need to build or migrate cloud-native apps, modernise existing apps, and run infrastructure across any cloud continues to grow along with the challenges.

Companies are exploring more cost-effective ways to enable integrated experiences for multi-cloud without compromising ongoing operations, with experts like Cloud Kinetics assisting trials of VMC on AWS. From ROI to change management, challenges remain as leaders accelerate modern app operations with network and security virtualisation for WAN and data centres, and cloud-based security at every layer.

  • How can companies leverage cloud flexibility while at the same time supporting existing on-premise workloads?
  • What can organisations do to smoothly transition their existing workforce while optimising user experience and change management?
  • How can companies capture the full value of their cloud infrastructure and measure returns on investment?
  • By 2023, 1 in 3 companies will generate more than 15% of their revenues from digital products and services, as compared to 1 in 6 in 2020.
  • By 2023, 35% of organisations will allocate half of their security budget to cross-technology ecosystems/platforms designed for rapid consumption and unified security capabilities to drive agile innovation.
  • By 2025, 55% of successful digitally innovative products will be built by teams that include people with creative, critical thinking, analysis, and automation skills as well as software engineers.
