How to maintain application availability and mobility in an ever-changing world

It can’t be denied or ignored that the world is becoming more digital. The demand upon organisations to modernise their infrastructure to support investments in new and diverse technology advancements calls for a different approach to the data centre. It’s therefore imperative to be on the front foot with your technology to ensure you have the upper hand as the business and technological landscape around us develops.

Public Sector organisations are not an exception and are going through significant changes and modernisation within their IT landscape which is being driven by a broader digital transformation agenda. They are doing this against a backdrop of challenges including eliminating risk and complexity, improving resilience and cloud adoption. The continuous enhancement of technology solutions often means that the next stage of evolution is being planned before the current one has been completed. So how do you approach the challenge and opportunity of IT modernisation whilst reducing risk and ensuring application availability?

Chief Technology Officer at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, has faced these challenges in a complex, mission-critical environment where application downtime can have far-reaching consequences. In this session, you can hear from and have the opportunity to discuss with Gary on a range of opportunities and challenges including:

  • The legacy IT challenges from the merging of two organisations
  • The approach that Guy’s & St Thomas’ took to Data Center modernisation and building a robust application infrastructure
  • Building for today with a view on tomorrow

Join Zerto and other senior IT leaders and decision-makers as we address how to maintain application availability and mobility in an ever-changing and evolving world ensure organisations are prepared to continually thrive.
