Building IT Infrastructure for the Digital Future

August 27, 2019 | Seattle, WA

As organizations adopt a digital-first approach to operations, process and customer engagement, they’re finding revenue opportunities fueled by new offerings, improved sales capacity, better data analysis, and speed to market. At the same time, they face daunting obstacles to digital initiatives across skills, culture and the complexity of legacy infrastructure. Simply put, legacy approaches tied to dated IT infrastructure not only inhibit digital-first initiatives and revenue growth, they increase an organization’s exposure to competitive disruption.

How are organizations strategically adopting a highly efficient fuel mix across today’s core data center infrastructure and cloud resources? What networking and automation strategies free up legacy time spent on operations, thereby allowing greater focus on digital-first business initiatives? And where are other organizations finding IT infrastructure success with improved skills alignment, culture development, and previously untapped consumption capabilities for digital-first, artificial intelligence, and machine learning initiatives, among others?

How are organizations protecting their businesses in an era teeming with new technologies that support digital business, artificial intelligence and machine learning? What new and evolving approaches show promise to protect the organization against emerging threats? And where are other organizations finding success in their cyber risk and security efforts?

Join us for CDW’s dinner discussion on Core-to-Cloud: Building IT Infrastructure for the Digital Future – presented by CIO, CSO, Computerworld and Network World – where we’ll bring together experts who are savvy to these questions, challenges and more. You’ll gain an up-to-the-minute understanding of where today’s modern data center, cloud and networking strategies are headed, and why they’re critical to success in today’s increasingly digital business environment.
