IDC Day Roadshow 2017

On the Way to Digital Transformation

June 6, Boulevard Hotel Baku

Join us for IDC Day in Baku

According to IDC’s global predictions, by the end of 2017, two thirds of top CEOs will consider digital transformation as a key element of corporate strategy. In Azerbaijan, we are at the beginning of this journey, but in the coming years, the use of the 3rd Platform technologies will be one of the main factors contributing to business success in most companies.

The IDC Day event series aims to help IT executives understand some of these global trends and thereby supports efforts to build their own strategies. With the help of IDC experts, leading market players, and IT professionals who have jumpstarted the digitalization themselves, the event will feature knowledge-sharing of new ideas and best practices.

Key Themes of IDC Day Roadshow 2017

Trends That Are Shaping the Future of Business

Endpoint defense. Identity as a perimeter. Data-centric security. By addressing these dimensions, you can significantly improve the security of your organization while transitioning processes to 3rd Platform architectures.

Modern Datacenter

The modern datacenter continues to evolve in line with business demands and advancements in technology. Consider shifting to newer consolidated systems, agility, scalability, and manageability.
