For IT managers across New Zealand, cloud computing continues to disrupt entire industries, reshaping businesses and sectors along the way.
Driven by a rising tide of public cloud spending locally, the impact of the cloud - and all it encompasses - has in truth, barely begun.
In 2016 and beyond, Kiwi organisations will continue to seek out IT solutions that are responsive to changing enterprise needs, asking agility, cost, innovation and security questions of public cloud.
Before committing however, IT managers need answers - as the future of public cloud continues to evolve at an unrelenting pace.
Computerworld Question Time - The Future of Public Cloud, in association with Microsoft, delves deep into the heart of technology issues across enterprise, examined by an expert panel of key industry figures and analysts.
Heading the panel, alongside Microsoft New Zealand representatives, is Mike Clarke, who leads the CIO Advisory Practice at KPMG New Zealand.
Clarke joined KPMG in January 2016 as a Partner, working closely with key clients in establishing the transformation of their IT to deliver improvements to people, process and technology.
Prior to joining KPMG, Clarke led technology businesses and the technology divisions of large corporations across Australia and New Zealand, with his last role being the CIO of SKYCITY Entertainment Group.
Set for February 16 at the Langham Hotel in Auckland (4-6pm), key areas of discussion will include:
What is the future of public cloud? How will the key drivers and trends impact enterprise in 2016 and beyond
What are the key benefits of public cloud? And the barriers to adoption?
What is the business priority when moving to the cloud - cost, agility, innovation, security?
Public cloud vs. private cloud - which direction should businesses go and how can they maximise value?
