CIO LIVE Webinar: Creating Business Value with Containers. How Can CIOs Capitalise in ASEAN?

As a wave of modernisation floods the enterprise – spanning the data centre to applications – businesses are shifting strategic priorities in favour of technology and business model overhauls across ASEAN.

CIO LIVE Webinar: Creating Business Value With Containers. How Can CIOs Capitalise in ASEAN?

Because while transformation remains high on the corporate agenda, CIOs are increasing focus on infrastructure upgrades and consumption enhancements, paving the way for an organisational framework shaped by containerisation.

According to State of the CIO research – commissioned by Foundry – 60% of IT executives plan to upgrade outdated IT infrastructure across ASEAN, with heightened focus on business process transformation (61%) and company profitability (46%) in the months ahead. In moving from pilot phase to mainstream, the enterprise is embracing containers to create cloud-like environments via flexible payment terms, sharpening offerings across hardware, software and services in the process.

This CIO webinar – in association with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Red Hat and Intel – will assess emerging priorities specific to containers, documenting a step-by-step approach to improving cost efficiencies while accelerating modernisation plans.

Key discussion points include:

  • Outlining CIO priorities specific to containerisation
  • Documenting key business benefits of embracing containers
  • Highlighting new cost-saving approaches to modernisation
  • Sharing examples of industry best practice and opportunities ahead
