For years, flexible business practices, enabled through efficient cloud technology, have been touted as the future of multiple service industries. Entirely remote operations, highly specialised, cost-effective resourcing for various teams and inter-departmental transparency have been the primary end goals of almost all cloud strategies.
Great strides have been made in the past few years towards the realisation of these ambitions. But the global pandemic has quickly forced the theoretical to become a reality. Almost overnight, companies around the world have been forced to adopt remote working and become reliant on the infrastructure they already have, regardless of their preparedness.
Companies that have invested in cloud infrastructure are at a significant advantage. However, at a time when business resilience will be critical to surviving the economic fallout, there are still issues that persist with cloud optimisation. In turn, this has made maximising cloud infrastructure’s potential all the more critical. From managing increased security threats, to developing new business capabilities at speed and remotely in response to rapidly shifting health guidance, the urgency of overcoming cloud challenges cannot be understated. For CTOs, CIOs and CISOs, their companies’ abilities to survive and thrive are now dependent on what they can achieve via the cloud.
The Financial Times, in partnership with CloudHealth by VMware, present this executive webinar session that will examine the significant challenges transformational leaders must overcome as they optimise their use of cloud technology in this crisis.
