Build IT. Manage IT. Protect IT.

Modern IT organizations are between a rock and a hard place.

Today's IT infrastructure and operations professionals are at once the Protectors of the Kingdom, responsible for delivering safe, high-performance and reliable services to lines of business and end users.

But with that role comes the perception of IT as the Department of No, putting the kibosh on innovation and time to market. 

The Modern Infrastructure Summit combats this perception by striking a logical balance between giving the business what it wants, and providing the business with what it needs.

Join over 100 of your IT peers for this one-day, 2-track event and listen to keynotes from grounded-but-visionary peers on how today’s consumer-oriented technologies can – beyond the vendor-hype – be viewed as an asset rather than a hindrance. But, is the cure is worse than the disease? Attend breakout sessions on topics such as:

  • New infrastructure choices for designing and delivering demanding applications;
  • The workplace of the future;
  • How automation, management and DevOps can bring new levels of efficiency to the IT infrastructure you already have;
  • Identifying the best and worst workload candidates for cloud;
  • Understanding cloud costs; and
  • Using cloud for backup and data protection.

This unique 2 track format – that you can read more about below – provides attendees with ample networking time and expert content without spending too much time out of the office.

Don't miss this opportunity to receive proven strategies and independent advice on staying ahead of the curve in today's constantly changing IT landscape.

As mentioned above, the 2 concurrently running tracks allow attendees to customize the agenda to best fit their and their organizations, unique needs. Attend each and every session within one singular track or pick-and-choose from each to create a day that directly speaks to the issues you’re facing now. Discover more about each track below:
