About The Event
The Bloomberg Modernization Roadshow explores how companies can create a secure, integrated hybrid cloud environment that extends the value of their technology investments while accelerating their ability to respond to market shifts and customer demands.
The problem today? A highly disruptive environment has created uncertainty, affecting both short-term operations and long-term sustainability of business operations. Inside their companies, information-technology leaders also must contend with multiple application-development platforms and cloud providers, and complex on-premises infrastructures. This creates complexity that makes it challenging for corporations to execute with speed, provide comprehensive security for their data and infrastructure, and drive efficiency. In a highly competitive labor environment, executives must recruit and retain a talent pool skilled in dealing with rapidly changing technology. Add to all that the challenge of navigating changing government regulations and greater demands both internally and externally for information- technology sustainability.
What constitutes success? Technology-enabled innovation and efficiency. What does this look like? Companies that drive innovation with cloud as an operating model without compromising on security, privacy, or regulatory controls. It also means ensuring access to data that are secure, resilient and stored where needed. The result can be a unified, open, and flexible distributed-computing environment to run and scale traditional and cloud-native workloads on the most appropriate computing model. In the end, the optimal solution efficiently moves a company forward with speed and without introducing high levels of risk.
A population of nearly 10 million people ranks London as one of Europe’s two megacities (Paris is the second). With six international airports, 10 major ground transport hubs and an extensive, iconic underground rail system, London's infrastructure is among the best in the world – making it a hub for multiple industries, including media, healthcare and technology. The city also ranks as the world's financial capital; it alone supports more than six million jobs.
The business and technology executives gathered for the Modernization Roadshow will describe the concrete solutions that have helped them tackle the challenges in their information environments. They will deliver insights that advance the conversation around the value of an open, integrated hybrid cloud strategy. Participants will include established companies that have made strides in modernizing without hampering innovation and creativity. In addition, experts will share their outlook on emerging technologies that will disrupt the status quo to create additional value.
