Tracks Announced


At Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2019, we have four tracks dedicated to answer your top of mind questions.

Track A Cloud Strategies and Futures

As cloud computing enters its second decade, it is becoming a vehicle for much of what is described as the future of IT. Yet despite its longevity, concerns remain about how best to balance between cloud computing as “the answer” and cloud computing as one of many answers for IT. This track explores how to develop a successful cloud stratagem and strike the right balance between value and risk — both real and imagined.




Hot Topics:

  • Cloud Architectures
  • Multi-cloud Management
  • Cloud Connectivity
  • Cloud Services Governance
  • Cloud Migration Tactics



Track B Evolving IT Operations and DevOps

I&O leaders must redefine the mission of IT operations to focus on delivering positive, reliable and efficient business outcomes. This change will not be easy, given existing pressures to move faster, while running and maintaining the existing IT infrastructure. This track focuses on the infrastructure and operational processes and technologies enabling business outcomes and how IT operations leaders and their teams must simultaneously deliver reliable existing systems while navigating the changes needed to support new digital workloads.

Track C Innovation and Emerging Trends in Digital Infrastructures

To succeed in the digital era, I&O leaders must be willing to embark on “creative destruction” — fundamentally rethinking the technology architecture, processes and people required for next-generation workloads, understanding new trends and technologies that could significantly benefit IT and the business. This track will focus on the exploratory and potentially transformative decisions I&O leaders will take and how best to find the balance between ensuring operational stability and tapping into emerging trends.

Track D Leadership, Cultural and Organizational Transformation
