As organizations increasingly adopt digital business strategies, they find themselves at a crossroads.  How can they commit valuable IT time and investment for IT as a strategic business driver when the majority of time is spent on operational issues across legacy architectures, device configuration, license management, and countless other initiatives required to keep the lights on?  To remain competitive, more and more organizations are viewing their IT environment strategically by simplifying deployment, moving to planned IT processes, and refreshing core infrastructure – all to make IT inherently agile for new business opportunities.

What multi-cloud strategies are organizations seizing to deliver improved efficiency and savings?  How can modern infrastructure and networking technologies leverage data to drive business results while giving flexibility and productivity to the workforce?  Where can organizations identify strategic opportunities to simplify IT deployment and take advantage of today’s modern and hybrid environments?  And how can all of this help organizations better manage IT so they can strategically integrate data sets, react to changes in the business climate, and focus on competitive market opportunities?

Join us for CDW’s dinner on “Building a Strategic IT Environment for the Future” – presented in partnership with CIO, CSO, Computerworld and Network World – where we’ll bring together experts savvy to these questions, challenges and more.  You’ll gain an up-to-the-minute understanding of modern data center, cloud and networking strategies to help your organization advance in today’s business environment.
