Debunking Cloud Myths for a Better Tomorrow

Cloud is broadly considered the only platform that can provide the agility, scalability, and innovation required to take companies digital in the post-COVID era. However, conversations with hundreds of CEOs and CIOs have revealed that a consistent set of myths has hampered progress and adoption - what lessons can we take from these journeys to build a better tomorrow? In this session, we will explore how many of today’s beliefs about cloud are based on misconceptions that get in the way of deeply understanding the positive business, operational, and economic impacts of cloud. Our diverse panelists from both the public and private sector, will share their personal stories and experiences in leading their organizations to cloud and how you can, too.
