Dinner for Hartford IT Leaders

Accelerating Value Realization from Cloud Investments


Wed, December 6, 2023


5:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST

There’s a paradox in the cloud. Public cloud infrastructure has set the standard for increased agility and flexibility; but the cost is under scrutiny and challenging the business mandate to accelerate public cloud adoption. In fact, managing cloud spend is the number-one challenge cited by business leaders in the 2023 Flexera State of the Cloud Report, with 82% of all organizations putting it at the top of the list, even surpassing security concerns (79%).

Further, cost management initiatives result in businesses leveraging multiple clouds driving increased complexity. As a result, leaders are taking a second look at their cloud strategies to ensure they can drive the best outcomes.

Join thought leaders from Nutanix, along with a group of your IT industry peers, as we discuss best practices to continue to innovate in a digital world, while making the most of your cloud investment.
