How cloud migration enables business transformation

29 september 2022 @ 08:00 - 12:30


The use of new technology will always be a mix of IT push and business pull. But no one would deny that today’s solutions, clouds, and software platforms are both preconditions and drivers of digital business transformation. This roundtable, co-hosted by Cloudreach, is all about sharing knowledge and experience on the benefits of migration to the public cloud. The guest speaker is Chris Gabriel, Chief Strategy Officer at Sapphire Systems.

For organizations and their IT leaders, it’s basically about two things. Keeping up with all new digital developments in order to be able to realize business innovation quickly, effectively, and adaptively. But that will not be possible without getting the core in order: the foundation of processes and systems on which all customer and market-oriented innovation can be built.

The public cloud plays a vital role in addressing these challenges. In this breakfast meeting, Chris Gabriel of Sapphire Systems will elaborate on his migration, which had to ensure stability, scalability, durability, and security. “At the same time, we wanted to be able to respond to business opportunities”, says the former CTO, CDO, and current chief strategist of the private equity-owned company. “Ultimately, with a holy grail of features, everything is better now and also gives us a competitive edge.”

The meeting, organized with domain specialist Cloudreach, aims to answer a number of fundamental questions: Why would you migrate to the public cloud? How do you design and create a cloud-based environment in the right way? How do you then properly migrate to such a heavily secure and in the meantime flexible IT basis? And how do you make money with it? Of course, there is room for questions and discussion.
