Whether you already have a cloud strategy in place and are well advanced in your approach or are at the early stages, we discussed:
- The evolving data landscape and its impact on those that own and manage it and those that use it.
- Critical success factors in achieving a better enterprise data strategy in a multi-cloud environment.
- Data security, governance and control across all of your environments that supports the evolving data landscape.
- Approaches to cultural change and upskilling for innovation across the organisation.
