Unlock Your Ultimate Container Strategy
YOUR DIGITAL AGENDA
CEO.digital and IBM are inviting just 10 IT leaders to an extraordinary virtual networking experience. You’ll enjoy interactive talks on application modernization, Kubernetes and containers plus C-level networking, rounded off with a delicious selection of refreshments from Fortnum & Mason.
IT leaders are under continuous pressure to increase agility and adapt cutting-edge cloud technologies that drive efficiency, fuel growth and cut costs. Many are turning to containers and Kubernetes. But how can you optimise their use to avoid the common challenges that come with hybrid cloud applications, such as limited flexibility, speed and scalability?
To answer these questions and more on streamlining containers across the server landscape, we’ll be joined by a trio of subject matter experts at this exclusive event:
- Dr R. David Edelman: a renowned scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who focuses on the governance of advanced and emerging technologies with a particular emphasis on AI policy.
- Will Kinard, CTO of BoxBoat Technologies: a specialist on building, shipping, and running distributed applications faster, and former senior software engineer at several Fortune 500 companies.
- Aparna Sharma, Global VP, Worldwide Application Development and Modernization at IBM: a distinguished thought leader and speaker on large-scale transformation through Application Development.
If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also receive a fine selection of coffee, tea and cookies from Fortnum & Mason. We hope you can join us!
