2021 Tracks at a Glance

Attendees had access to the latest Gartner research specifically designed to help infrastructure, operations and cloud leaders meet the demands of the future. Each track had a particular area of focus that helped deliver what matters most to you and your organization.

Track A

Disruptive Technologies and Future-Oriented Trends

Disruptive technologies continue to challenge many enterprises, forcing them to rethink their business models and ecosystems and develop new ones. This track takes a look at future-oriented trends and explores the balance between ensuring operational stability and tapping into the newest technologies.

Track B

Hybrid/Multi-Cloud Strategies

As cloud computing approaches its third decade, firms are continuing to find new value in hybrid/multi-cloud as a delivery model for enterprise applications, but significant issues remain. This track explores how to develop a successful cloud strategy and strike the right balance between value and risk — both real and imagined.

Track C

Cloud and Operations Management

Modern, cloud native applications and infrastructure are increasingly distributed and complex, creating a huge workload and number of management tasks for the IT department. This track focuses on the technologies and methodologies your IT operations teams should leverage for hybrid/multi-cloud operations.

Track D

Technology Talent and Leadership

Leadership matters now more than ever, but leaders are extremely busy as they face higher expectations and demands, so essential strategic objectives can lose their focus. This track focuses on why IT leaders must, and how they can, foster in their team a mindset of maintaining and improving on essential value propositions, as leaders engage in talent development and the cultural transformation necessary to ensure they can utilize technologies to solve the issues facing the organization.

Track E

The Digital Workplace and Employee Experience

The digital workplace has entered a new phase, as COVID-19 accelerates the shift to remote work and related changes in the nature of the workplace. This track provides suggestions to help IT leaders create a remote-first digital workplace and achieve work-style reforms.

Health & Safety Measures

We are excited and prepared to return to in-person conferences this year. Over the coming months we will continue to monitor and adhere to government, venue and health agency guidelines and recommendations as we plan our in-person programs.

As a part of our commitment to creating the safest possible environment for our community given current infection rates around the globe, we will be requiring all attendees, exhibitors, staff and partners participating in this year’s in-person conferences to present proof of at least 2 doses of vaccination (and that a minimum of 2 weeks have passed since the second dose) and agree to follow our Health & Safety Policy, in addition to wearing masks, measuring body temperature, and sanitizing hands prior to entry into the venue. 

  • To prevent transmission of the virus, you will be denied entry if you:

    • Have a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius (99.5 Fahrenheit) or higher, or 1 degree Celsius higher than normal temperature,

    • Have a cough, shortness of breath, general malaise, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, loss of taste and smell, eye pain/redness, headache, diarrhea, or nausea/vomiting,

    • Have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), or

    • Have traveled to a country or region where the government has imposed entry restrictions or required a post-entry observation period within the past 14 days prior to the date of the event, and/or have been in close contact with a resident of such a country or region.

  • Please wear a non-woven mask instead of a cloth or urethane mask.

In addition to the above attendance criteria, we will also implement a set of operational planning measures to help create a clean and safe conference:

  • Increased cleaning and sanitizing of the event space

  • Decreased capacity and minimized congestion where possible across the venue, including more space in aisleways

  • Touchless or reduced contact interactions throughout the conference
