The journey from SDWAN to AI Driven Enterprise

2 major macro-trends are shaping up our IT industry: Digital transformation and the Cloud. Digital disruption is hitting hard all sectors of the global economy and the effects are still only just playing out. Cloud is the “Super-Nova that releases massive energy and accelerate the change”. Many companies and economies are scrambling to catch each new wave and the keep up with rate of change.
Successful digital transformations should be well designed and soundly executed across multiple domains, taking full benefits of technology advances. Central to the success of the transformation is being clear about the impact of connectivity infrastructure, security, the data and the Cloud while understanding the key dependencies across all of them.
In this Keynote, we will tackle the basis of building a connectivity infrastructure using technology as a competitive advantage taking into account the myriad new ways value can be created.
