Don’t Let Legacy Hold Back Your Digital Transformation or Adoption of Cloud

Private meeting     08-FEB    TIME: 11AM

“By 2030, companies will lose roughly $650 billion as a result of system health, downtime and security challenges.”


[McKinsey, 2021]


Data and IT are vital to all organisations whether they are accessed on-premise or hosted in the cloud. And today’s demands on systems drive the need for a resilient infrastructure, an agile team, as well as performant, accessible information to deliver high-velocity, reliable business services to customers. But what if you use a mission critical legacy IBM platform such as mainframe or IBM i? Does this disrupt your digital transformation plans? Are these environments out of step with the rest of your IT? Are they less visible to those who need insight from an infrastructure or data perspective?


Getting essential information to the right place at the right time may be a challenge. Problem resolutions may take longer than they should and negatively impact your business…even your reputation. Mainframe and IBM i are still an important component in systems and services for many organisations. But are they as connected as they could be? Can data access, infrastructure resilience and overall agility be significantly improved?


Join your Executive peers to discuss and learn how these issues are being  overcome; strategies that can be used to move the business forward when faced with cloud platforms, pressure on essential systems and services, and a backdrop of legacy systems.

Who Should Attend?

Senior decision makers such as Chief Architects, CIOs, CTOs, and other IT-focused executives  with an interest in modernising legacy systems.
