The Evolution of Cloud - A thought leadership forum held in the clouds

No doubt many of your customers will already have recognised the power of cloud and are reaping the benefits in terms of on-demand expansion of storage and compute capacity, lower operating costs and a more agile enterprise. However, it has to be acknowledged that concerns around the privacy and security of invaluable corporate data assets held in the cloud can impede further adoption. 

We’ve made sure that issues such as this are covered in the event programme. Other highlights include intelligence from the 2016 Canalys Channels Forums, a trusted source of information for channel partners in the IT industry, presented by Arrow’s UK Managing Director, Data Centre Solutions - UK and Ireland. 

You’ll also hear from Arrow’s Global Cloud Leader on how on our cloud strategy can transform your business and assemble the right pathway for your customers. We’ll be open about our own successes and failures on the road to becoming a cloud-oriented business.

We’ll be welcoming leading cloud industry experts from Microsoft, who will be sharing valuable insight into cloud security and strengthening the IT infrastructure.

Thought-provoking thought leadership indeed!

Appropriately, we’re holding the event ‘in the clouds’ in Westminster’s tallest building at Altitude 360, a venue that offers breath-taking views of the capital. 

As an opportunity to learn from the experts, benefit from personalised consultancy in specially designed pods, network with the Arrow channel partner community and Arrow representatives, and enjoy fun, cloud-themed refreshments in a stunning setting, this event is a must!

If further incentive were needed, one lucky organisation attending the event will win a one-day digital marketing workshop, packed with actionable ideas and recommendations.

Please note, we are genuinely limiting the number of guests to ensure a quality experience, so early registration is advisable.

I’ll look forward to hearing that you're going to be joining us.
