Season One: Tuesday 22 February
Ensuring up to date knowledge on innovation of all things Hybrid & Multi Cloud
Computing is delighted to announce Deskflix season 1 for 2022, The Future of Hybrid & Multi Cloud which takes place on Tuesday 22 February.
With the majority of companies looking to the future of scalability and adjustability, the cloud has found its way into the everyday but has brought along some major considerations. The longing for efficiency without a proper understanding could lead to misuse and thus frustration when trying to adapt.
A deep understanding of the Cloud Ecosystem and what model would fit the organisational needs is key. Join us for a day of networking, innovation and discussions looking at some of the core issues when implementing a Hybrid or Multi Cloud strategy such as:
- Combating vendor lock-in
- Governing cloud usage
- Determining what stays on-prem
- Creating a ‘Cloud Culture’
As organisations switch to these newer models, the importance of management of this new ecosystem will be paramount and the Deskflix: Hybrid & Multi Cloud is the ‘can’t miss’ event for ensuring up to date knowledge on all things Cloud.

As we reset after the pandemic, CIOs need to consider how to manage the transition from the necessary knee-jerk approach to remote working to a systemic approach to digital transformation that works for everyone. The need for business continuity has evolved into the need for IT resiliency as leaders look to remove vulnerabilities while still making their employee and customer experiences frictionless and secure. Whether in the office or remote, how can CIOs and IT leaders adopt a Zero Trust security approach and cultivate a culture of trust in the workplace?
