Cloud: Seize the opportunity to re-model and re-imagine a new worldRewrite the rules of the game by leveraging the power of the cloud to innovate, scale and create new business models

These are unprecedented times. Business models are getting changed rapidly, and work from home is the norm, than an exception. Even as the world starts looking at ‘adapting’ to the new normal, there is hope.

The current crisis offers a compelling value proposition to re-model your business enabled by cloud. This is also a great opportunity to review your business continuity plans, revamp operations and infrastructure, reduce risk and re-imagine the way you have traditionally deployed technologies. For organisations that still have not completely leveraged the power of the cloud, the current situation presents an opportunity to re-build a robust and sustainable blueprint to thrive in this new normal. The cloud is the ideal platform to quickly embrace change, bring innovation and scale fast.

In this era of remote working, cloud-based platforms are best suited to address diverse needs of organisations. Some of cloud computing’s greatest successes to date have come from allowing groups and communities to work together in ways that were not previously possible. You can also use the power of the cloud to take advantage of emerging technologies such as AI/ML to unlock strategic insights and provide your customers with a unique and personalized experience.

These are times of innovation in India, the combination of the demography, ecosystem and the immense opportunity to bring in a large part of the population to the mainstream using digital medium, is unique to India.

To achieve the full potential of the cloud, organisations need the right partner and the right cloud provider for ensuring migration of existing workloads to the cloud seamlessly and modernising and extending existing applications to the cloud. Organisations also need a simple way for ensuring security and visibility across multiple clouds. In these times of disasters, organisations also need an unmatched BCP (Business Continuity Plan) environment spanning different seismic zones and inter-connected by low-latency networks.

Recognizing the need for organisations to fully leverage the full potential of the cloud, cloud leader, Oracle and Express Computer, have partnered together to bring you a virtual conference that will share unique perspectives from business and technology leaders.

By attending this conference, you will get to know about an unmatched value proposition -- the announcement of the second cloud region from Oracle. This offers organisations a BCP environment spanning two different seismic zones, inter-connected by low-latency Oracle backbone. This enables a highly available environment and reduces total cost of ownership associated with data movement between the two regions.

Key highlights of the conference:

I hope to see you at the conference,
