Why You Should Attend!

The modern cloud era has fundamentally reset expectations of enterprise IT services. Internal and external consumers of these IT resources demand the same agility and scalability of public clouds. As a result, today’s CIOs need to bring true cloud-like simplicity and flexibility to their data centers to stay competitive, and to support their business.

To build their next-generation infrastructure, enterprise IT leaders are looking beyond their legacy vendors and architectures, and are building data centers that rival public clouds. What does this new enterprise IT stack look like, and how can CIOs leverage the latest innovations as they put their data center and cloud strategies into practice?

Argyle Executive forum, in partnership with Nutanix, is bringing together leading CIOs and senior IT executives across industries to discuss best practices in revolutionizing cloud strategy for The 2017 CIO Leadership Dinner: Your MultiCloud Strategy. Join us as we cover building and implementing a successful cloud strategy, leveraging public cloud services, innovations in technologies to drive efficiency and performance, and more.
