Hybrid Cloud: The right data, in the right place, for the right cost

12th April 2023, Minneapolis 18:30 - 21:30 CDT
In partnership

Dinner Location: Minneapolis

Welcome to this Meet The Boss event in partnership with Hitachi Vantara and Computacenter.

More than 90% of enterprises will rely on a hybrid cloud environment to meet their infrastructure needs. Few companies rely solely on private, on-premises data centers or public clouds, as each has its benefits. They overwhelmingly favor a hybrid cloud approach, which gives them the flexibility to store and use data and applications in the way that best suits their needs for agility, security, compliance, speed, cost-efficiency.

But moving to a hybrid cloud model comes with challenges. How do you manage a complex, sprawling, multi-cloud environment—one that’s slowing innovation and causing costs to rise? How do you deal with a shortage of cloud talent, not to mention issues with security and data recovery? Join us as we explore these questions and more during this engaging discussion with technology leaders.

From the entire team at Meet The Boss, Hitachi Vantara and Computacenter, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.
