Multi-cloud is Here: Are You Getting the Most Value From It?

4th April 2023, London 18:30 - 21:35 BST

Dinner Location: Searcys at The Gherkin

Good evening and welcome to this Meet the Boss live event in partnership with Oracle and Accenture.

In recent years, cloud computing services have been dominated by the big players like AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google GCP. But every cloud service provider has its strengths, weaknesses and complexities – making it difficult for any one cloud solution to meet all of an organization’s needs.

That’s why having a multi-cloud strategy is key. Applied and deployed correctly, a strategy gives companies the freedom, flexibility and autonomy to use different cloud solution providers to their advantage – by optimizing things like cost, speed and performance enabled by an effective FinOps strategy. It can reduce downtime, lower latency and allows organizations to avoid the dreaded vendor lock-in. In fact, in a 2022 S&P Global multi-cloud survey, 97% of organizations said they use more than one cloud provider – with the leading drivers of this trend being cost, data residency and business agility.

At this event, we’ll explore why every organization should be embracing multi-cloud as part of their digital transformation journey in 2023. We’ll be joined by industry-leading experts from Oracle and Accenture as we find out what strategies work best, the considerations to make before deployment and the potential pitfalls to avoid along the way. We’ll even look beyond cloud, to the radical possibilities of tomorrow and innovations of the future.

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

Bon Appetit!
