From Concept to Scale, Modernize Your Applications and Infrastructure with Speed and Consistency

Dinner Location: Tortoise Supper Club

According to Nucleus Research many organizations are migrating their infrastructure and applications to the cloud with AWS. The benefits include cost savings, more efficient infrastructure management, reduction in unplanned downtime and fewer security incidents per year. But modernizing your applications and infrastructure with speed and consistency is challenging.

As an AWS Premier Partner offering consulting services, IBM helps clients optimize their AWS cloud adoption, migration, and modernization. We bring together expertise in security, enterprise scalability, and open innovation with Red Hat OpenShift to help clients quickly and seamlessly migrate to AWS cloud. We help build intelligent workflows powered by data, AI, and automation.

Join IBM and a select group of your peers as we discuss the value of migration and modernization, how to boost innovation, respond quickly to changing customer demands, and drive sustainable business transformation.

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

Hope to see you in Chicago!

About AWS

Launched in 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began exposing key infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services -- now widely known as cloud computing. The ultimate benefit of cloud computing, and AWS, is the ability to leverage a new business model and turn capital infrastructure expenses into variable costs. Businesses no longer need to plan and procure servers and other IT resources weeks or months in advance. Using AWS, businesses can take advantage of Amazon's expertise and economies of scale to access resources when their business needs them, delivering results faster and at a lower cost.
