2019 CIO Think Tank:
How to Optimize Multiple Cloud Platforms

New York, NY - Sep 26, 2019


By 2021, 98% of organizations plan to adopt multi-cloud architectures, but only 41% have a multi-cloud management strategy and just 38% have procedures and tools to operate a multi-cloud environment. For most organizations, multiple cloud platforms grew organically, with no holistic strategy. As an IT leader you don't want to stifle forays into multi-cloud as it is an engine to efficiently support growth, innovation and transformation, however, it can be one of the most challenging changes that organizations face. 

Join Argyle, in partnership with IBM in our 2019 CIO Think Tank. During the Think Tank we’ll discuss: 

  • Opportunities and inherent challenges for organizations as applications across categories migrate to multi-cloud 
  • Stages of multi-cloud transformation 
  • Best practices from organizations that are succeeding with a multi-cloud environments
