Experience-Driven Elasticity: Unlocking Sustainable Business Value from App Modernization

28th September 2022, Chicago 18:00 - 21:30 CDT

Dinner Location: Smith & Wollensky

Good evening…

And welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with IBM Turbonomic

This is a modern application era. And an investment in cloud native is an investment in application modernization.

By 2025, Gartner estimates over 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud native platforms. That’s up from 30% in 2021.

But as the masses look to modernize, how do you unlock the true potential of your applications to stand out? How can you do it sustainably?

And how do you make your cloud architecture as resilient and agile as elastic?

The key? Automation that takes an app-first approach.

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

Bon Appetit!
