I’m looking forward to working for Whitehall Media chairing their Enterprise Cloud Computing Conference next Wednesday 8 May. This is the second time I’ve chaired the London event, which is focused on helping senior IT people set a strategy for DevOps, Cloud and the Data Centre. The event covers an interesting range of topics that are top of mind for today’s CIO, from organisational change required to unite DevOps and Security, to the issue around implementing a cloud platform, to managing the journey from a data centre with monolithic legacy applications to a cloud hosted collection of microservices.
The speakers telling the stories are from Paddy Power Betfair, Debenhams, Royal Mail, Capital One, HSBC Global Banking and Markets, the National Theatre, Vodafone, the Nationwide Building Society and more. They’ll be talking about how to build a business-centric IT department, fast iterative development of applications, and, importantly, how to approach scaling your digital transformation. I’m opening the day with my Director and Deputy Chair of the Cloud Industry Forum hat on, but the closing keynote is from my colleague Alex Hilton, the CIF CEO.
Here’s are my thoughts on the previous edition:
Hopefully, in between being MC, I can take some notes and write a little that I’ll publish here for those of you that can’t make it. If you are interested in this kind of attending or speaking at this kind of event, please get in touch.
