Details
Attend the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2019 and see how to accelerate innovation and agility in a hybrid world and enable your organization’s digital future. The ground is shifting for IT infrastructure and operations (I&O). The adoption of 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. The traditional data center may be waning, but IT infrastructure and operations, increasingly digital and distributed, is here to stay.

Audience and Topics
The summit is expected to draw more than 3,500 professionals and feature more than 70 Gartner experts and 150 research-driven sessions. The audience will consist of CTOs, I&O executives, data center and IT infrastructure managers and IT operations leaders. 

The conference agenda features 10 comprehensive tracks taking a deep dive into a broad range of topics focused on the most pressing issues for infrastructure and operations leaders:

  • Cloud & Infrastructure Delivery Strategies
  • Building Cloud Infrastructures
  • Managing and Automating Hybrid Environments
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Evolution of Core Infrastructures
