Date: 30th May 2012
Venue: Dukes Hotel, London
Famed as the hotel where Ian Fleming wrote his famous novels, this is an opportunity not to miss.
007Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½s creator may no longer prop up the bar, but the Dukes hotel is still a star-studded icon in the heart of Mayfair. It is truly a setting that cannot be beaten for a unique British atmosphere and sumptuousity that will thrill your every bone.
Given the current squeeze on IT budgets, and the businessÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ insistence on Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½doing more with lessÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, itÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s more important than ever that CIOs take a strategic look at all areas of IT provision. Yet in recent years the IT infrastructure has become even more complex, thanks to the likes of mobile and m-commerce, cloud computing and even Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½social businessÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½.
This CBR Dining Club will look at the challenge through the lens of Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Workload OptimisationÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½. WeÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½re not talking about job scheduling or simple business process management: weÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½re talking about optimising IT workloads wherever, whenever and however they are deployed. What is the best way for IT Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ or indeed third parties Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ to identify, migrate, secure and ultimately optimise key workloads?
Strategies for deciding when to use service providers and when to keep it in-house; when to look to the cloud and when to go hybrid; and how to optimise IT as it becomes more about service delivery than siloed functional areas.
Join us for a complementary evening of networking and discussion at this stunningly exciting lair where everything is Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½shaken not stirredÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½.
