Dubai – With cloud adoption becoming an increasing necessity for enterprises across the Middle East looking to accelerate their digital transformation journeys, International Data Corporation (IDC) will this week host the UAE edition of its virtual IDC Cloud Roadshow 2021. Addressing the theme ‘Enabling a Hybrid Multicloud Ecosystem’, the online event on Wednesday, June 2 will present expert advice on how to develop and implement a strategic, digitally driven road map for the successful deployment of hybrid cloud.
“Highlighted as the key technology in IDC’s five stages of enterprise recovery, cloud has emerged as the fastest path and natural choice for enabling a resilient digital infrastructure,” says Matthew Eastwood, IDC’s senior vice president for enterprise infrastructure, cloud, developers & alliances. “CIOs across the region are aggressively investing in increasing their cloud leverage, and the effectiveness of their cloud strategies will be a critical factor shaping their competitiveness and growth post recovery.”
Eastwood will deliver the event’s keynote address, ‘Exploring the Value of a Cloud-Centric and Autonomous Digital Infrastructure’, while a series of respected industry thought leaders will be on hand to present essential guidance on defining effective cloud strategies, accelerating cloud migration, enabling datacenters of the future, driving application modernization, and securing hybrid cloud deployments.
Delegates will also be able to explore IDC’s exclusive CIO Masterclass Arena throughout the course of the event. This section of the virtual platform will showcase a series of pre-recorded best-practice case studies, fireside chats, and panel discussions with industry-leading cloud pioneers from organizations such as HSBC, Saudi Aramco, Emirates Global Aluminium, Bahrain’s National Oil and Gas Authority, Kuwait’s Communication and Information Technology Regulatory Authority, and Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism.
