Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference

Accelerate innovation and agility in a hybrid world

The ground is shifting for IT infrastructure and operations (I&O). New, fast-moving technologies and methodologies — from cloud, edge computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) to DevOps and AIOps — are cutting across the functional roles of typical I&O teams, challenging their skills and demanding a new kind of dexterity. I&O leaders can use this conference to:

  • Increase your knowledge of all things cloud, from migration tactics, vendor selection and cost optimization to IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.
  • Invest in the skills and technologies you need to deliver and manage cloud and noncloud services in a hybrid world.
  • Redefine the role and relevance of IT operations in a dynamic digital environment.
  • Expand the boundaries of I&O security, from DevSecOps and cloud security to cybersecurity, disaster recovery and data privacy.
  • Capitalize on emerging trends, including artificial intelligence (AI), IoT, machine learning and edge computing.
  • Cultivate cultural change with new I&O leadership practices for the digital age.
This conference was an excellent balance of people, process, tools, and navigating and inspiring change. The keynote speakers were excellent and provided great information. Very worthwhile experience!
