Dive into Cost Optimization & Value at Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference

With today’s higher inflation and energy prices, how will this directly impact the future of infrastructure costs? How can you quickly address and implement cost-cutting measures when it comes to cloud adoption? And how can Gartner’s four step methodology based on a cross-team approach lead to infrastructure cost savings opportunities? We’ve worked with our team of analysts to create a track that is dedicated to helping you optimize operational costs at the edge, cloud and on-premises while maximizing value for the anywhere business.

Hear from Marco Meinardi, the track chair of Optimizing Costs and Value on how we will address these concerns and more at the upcoming event.
