The data driven future. Your infrastructure, your way, data first

20th September 2023, Europe 11:00 - 12:30 CET

How are you solving the challenges of providing your organization with a flexible and scalable, always on data infrastructure?

Data is the fuel powering the global business ecosystem. And in a world of rapid digital transformation and an evolving threat landscape, data holds the key to innovation, growth, and resilience. But many businesses are falling behind in the race to modernise, with data stuck in silos and key legacy infrastructure holding back efforts to become agile, responsive, and truly data driven. As a result, they are losing out on opportunities to drive efficiencies and deliver value for their customers.

Together, we’ll discuss your challenges surrounding decarbonization of the data centre, hybrid cloud strategies and updating your disaster recovery plan considering ransomware and classifying your data into multiple classes for prioritization on recovery if everything is lost.

Join Hitachi Vantara and a select group of your peers as we explore key technology priorities and how businesses across industries are dealing with the challenges and opportunities of data fuelled innovation against a backdrop of disruption and drive toward sustainability.
