Availability, Continuity & Recovery Theatre

Always on is no longer a choice. Businesses need to be accessible in some way, all day, every day, whilst also being completely secure. From dealing with always on devices needing access to your data, to how your business can survive a natural disaster. Experts in the Availability, Continuity and Recovery Theatre will be covering a range of topics to help you plan for disruption and recovery. We’ll have a raft of sessions including the difference between business continuity and disaster recovery and why you need to consider both. Leveraging the power of virtualization. The increased uptake of

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and how to ensure your mobile workforce has a seamless experience. The security of cloud storage and how to choose the right solution. Surviving mission-critical failures and planning for success.

Businesses far and wide have to be protected against and prepared for cyber intrusions, business interruption, regulatory changes and disaster risk. Join us at Cloud Expo Europe to be armed with the knowledge and connections to be open all hours.

Multi-Cloud Strategy & Management Theatre

Start a conversation about cloud and you are rarely talking about a single product or service. For some, multi-cloud is a strategy set out as part of a detailed digital transformation plan. For others, it’s an accidental process that may or may not be ticking all the boxes. For more than a few, it’s a terrifying prospect that is delaying the adoption of technology and services, affecting the potential for rapid innovation and ability to outpace competition.

We’ll be tackling key topics including…Multi-Cloud 101. How do you keep multi manageable? The challenges and opportunities of multi-cloud including data governance and compliance, how to minimise complexity, retain commonality, the difference between multi and hybrid and much more. For the channel there’ll be sessions on next generation IT channel and how to leverage the opportunity multi-cloud presents.

Whether you’re in a multi-cloud muddle, got all your clouds in a row or you’re figuring out how to get started, join us in the Multi-Cloud Theatre to get the low-down on multi-cloud efficiency and manageability.

Future of Finance Theatre

There’s no doubt that technological advancements and customer expectations have shaken and stirred the Finance and Banking industry in all manner of ways. How the sector fares in this new world impacts every aspect of our business and personal lives.

The Future of Finance Theatre at Cloud Expo Europe will be home to industry experts and technology specialists from across the finance, banking and financial services sector. We’ll be covering the challenges of staying secure when your architecture has to be connected to anything, anywhere. Discussions on how fintech is driving transformation and accelerating change. Plus sessions on Blockchain – beyond the hype, building a digital-banking business, what open banking could mean for your business, simplifying legacy systems and the importance of customer intelligence.

If your role involves any aspect of keeping a financial institution running smoothly and securely whilst tackling the challenges and opportunities that technological innovation and customer expectation has brought to the table, the Future of Finance Theatre should be high on your Cloud Expo Europe agenda.

DevOps Innovation Theatre

Access the latest practices, solutions and technologies that are forging the future of DevOps. With DevOps becoming more familiar and, importantly, comfortable with IT teams, our DevOps Innovation Theatre addresses the latest trends that are compounding the value of DevOps as a business enabler. Focussing on topics ranging from Microservices to DevSecOps to “shifting left” to DevOps for the database (and more…) this theatre is a must attend for any IT player who wants to understand how to implement and deliver better DevOps.

Digital Transformation Theatre

Digital Transformation is the matter of the moment. Dig below the headline, the varied definitions and debates, and what do we get? Technology is vital for business success and there needs to be a plan to effectively achieve technology-enabled change.

The Digital Transformation theatre will be host to a series of sessions to help businesses of all sizes, both channel and enterprise understand the questions they need to ask to achieve digital transformation. Navigating the buzzwords and challenges and how to achieve transformation on a budget. Breaking digital transformation into manageable and more importantly deliverable chunks. Scaling digital change more sustainably, reducing technical debt, the new Tech Exec, transforming from perpetual to recurring revenue and much more.

Overused phrase or not, digital transformation is reshaping industries at pace and the sessions at Cloud Expo Europe 2019 will cover what’s been, what’s to come and how to make the right choices to remain competitive.

  • “This is an outstanding event that delivers fantastic results for us. The audience is huge but, more importantly, the quality of the prospects in the room is absolutely top class and means we can access decision makers from multiple new customers across two days.   I have been to many events during my lengthy career in the technology industry and I can happily say this is one of the best I have been to. This is an extremely important event for us and one we will not miss as we always see tremendous results.”
    Marketing Manager, GitLab
  • "We wouldn't miss an opportunity to exhibit at Cloud Expo Europe – there is an excellent quality of delegate and the organisation is fantastic. The organisers really listen to what we say. In previous years, we've had development meetings which have been really refreshing. CloserStill really take on feedback from sponsors. The quality of business is also impressive – we have done over £40 million of business just from this show alone over the past two years. This year we've had even more quality conversations with lots of c-level executives and enterprise architects."
    Marketing Manager, Northern Europe, NTT
  • "We have been exhibiting at Cloud Expo Europe for years as we have always seen great success at the show. We have an extensive cloud portfolio and as this is the biggest cloud exhibition in Europe it is important to have a presence here."
    UK Marketing Manager, T-Systems
  • "This year's show is going very well for us. We are seeing a lot of interest in various cloud-related IBM solutions. Our dedicated VIP area has been great for meetings and discussions. I've arranged lots of meetings with customers and potential clients over the course of the two days. The VIP area has attracted plenty of IT directors and CTOs which has been really great. You really do get everybody here – like-minded individuals sharing experiences and useful insights."
    Cloud Object Storage Sales, IBM
  • "We've been exhibiting at Cloud Expo Europe for a couple of years now. It's a huge opportunity for customer engagement and have a good chat with both existing and prospective clients. I've organised plenty of meetings to touch base with people – I wouldn't normally have the chance to see so many people in just two days! We see lots of senior level professionals here – IT directors and lead architects. It is important to have a presence here and get a message out to the audience. It introduces us to people who may not already know about us. We'll definitely be back in 2018!"
    Client Manager, Nutanix
  • "Cloud Expo Europe is always looking to push the boundaries. In an industry renowned for constant change, Cloud Expo Europe seeks to innovate whilst remaining relevant to its core audience of technologists, analysts and systems architects to remain ahead of the game. The event with its enviable keynote line up is specifically designed to get you to think outside the box whilst providing valuable and practical insight from leading cloud  practitioners.  It’s the one event that we place in the calendar without any hesitation, it has become a key element in our marketing strategy and provides us with a fantastic springboard for our new financial year.  We have yet to attend a Cloud Expo Europe where we have not gained a major return on our marketing investment having won significant new business worth hundreds of thousands of pounds each time we have exhibited. There is no such thing as a ‘sure thing’ when planning events but Cloud Expo Europe is as near to one as is possible."
