What You Need to Know

IT is changing in ways that were only dreams just a decade ago. As a more technology savvy workforce has emerged, IT departments are no longer the holders of all IT capability in an organization. At the same time, it’s becoming easier than ever to procure incredibly powerful IT capabilities with just a few clicks of a mouse. This is leading organizations to completely rethink how they do business and the status quo is simply no longer sufficient for the coming digital age. So-called digital transformation efforts are reshaping IT as service providers with lines of business driving the day-to-day delivery train. Entire industries are coalescing around such efforts and IT careers are being similarly transformed.

But, as with so many things in IT, digital transformation as a term is quickly being used by anything it can stick to. Separate the signal from the noise! ActualTech Media’s unique Digital Transformation Summit is your answer to the what, the why, and the how of digital transformation. Join us on March 28, 2018 for this one-time special event and discover how this latest trend could reshape industries and IT careers.

  • Learn from independent experts about where they see digital transformation in the context of IT history and where they think it will go
  • Discover transformational solutions that span the data center, from storage to cloud to data protection and more and discover how modern solutions are evolving to meet the transformation needs of business across the globe

It’s All Fun and Games Until Someone Loses Their Data 11:20-11:40AM

Digital Transformation sounds great on the surface but bypassing IT can come at a cost. Business managers do not really understand data backup and recovery and can be easily mislead by vendors about how well their data is being protected. Enterprises are as responsible for protecting their data in cloud applications as they are in protecting their on-premises apps. Fortunately there are good options to help IT offer data protection as a service to businesses running their own shadow IT. Learn the options for protecting SaaS and Cloud-based apps, no matter who is running them.
