Modernize your infrastructure to enable business growth


Implementing technologies and methodologies such as cloud, edge computing, Internet  of Things (IoT), DevOps and AIOps demands a new dexterity from every IT function and member of your infrastructure and operations (I&O) team. As more enterprises adopt cloud services, the point at which IT infrastructure ends and IT operations begins is becoming harder to discern. How will you evolve to meet the new requirements of digital business?

This year, the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2018 will offer senior IT and business leaders a broad range of infrastructure, operations and cloud topic coverage, as well as unbiased advice — all designed to accelerate decision making, prioritize your initiatives and link I&O strategies to the goals of the business.


Guided by the latest insight from Gartner and your peers, the conference will explore what makes a successful strategy — from cloud and IoT, to artificial intelligence and machine learning. You’ll discover how to plan for — and capitalize on — emerging technologies such as containers, flash, microservices and serverless computing, and new operational processes such as DevSecOps.

Take a look back at the 2017 conference

The 2018 agenda is not finalized yet. In the meantime, take a glimpse of what happened on-site in 2017.


Leadership and Vision
I&O leaders are drivers for traditional and digital business, and share responsibility and accountability for helping the enterprise provide capabilities in support of business growth.
Infrastructure Evolution and Migration
In a globalized digital world built on increasingly fragmented infrastructure, many older IT certainties have become outdated. To remain relevant to the digital business of tomorrow, I&O leaders need to update their mindsets, tools and management structures to address key trends now affecting IT.
Cloud and Digital Infrastructure
Digital infrastructure architecture won’t be based on current topologies, but will be global in scale, driven by business requirements. I&O leaders must focus on enabling rapid deployment of business services and deploying workloads to the right locations, for the right reasons, at the right price.
Security and Risk Mitigation
IT leaders are increasingly conscious of the impact cybersecurity can have on business outcomes. Learn what emerging trends impact security, disaster recovery and cyberthreats.  
Innovation and Emerging Trends
To drive organizational change, leaders need to keep a close eye on emerging trends that promise a substantial impact on business competitiveness. Get need-to-know technologies on your radar and discover strategies to incorporate these potential game changers into your future plans: AI, automation, DevSecOps, IoT, digital business platforms and more.
Senior Leadership Circle
Created exclusively for the most senior I&O leaders, this program is a unique opportunity to engage with Gartner analysts and your senior-level peers in exclusive, advanced-level roundtables, workshops and networking sessions.*
