About the Event

In today's Cloud Environment, there are many emerging challenges in need of attention, but also initiatives and transformations that we should highlight. Getting carried away by new technologies, strategies and legal recommendations are easy, linking your vision and strategical goals with operational efficiency is not.

Take the opportunity to build connections and share innovative solutions with visionary leaders in the area and develop business relations over pre-booked virtual 1-to-1 meetings.

Panel discussion : Scenario Session
Exit-Strategies: Preparing a Future-Proofed Plan for Vendor Lock-Ins and Cloud Repatriation
Most of today’s organisations have application strategies, and while most are moving forward at pace, many have not converted each application in their strategy with a corresponding exit plan. This means that organisation might end up in a locked-in situation. Even if an exit strategy should not be an afterthought, but rather a part of the initial design and planning phase, many of us have migrated to the Cloud before setting a plan. With that said, how can we work with exit strategies when already in the Cloud? In this session, the leading voices of this panel will brainstorm on exit strategies for two different scenarios for organisations operating in the Cloud.
Speakers: Deniel Kostelac - Volvo Car Sverige AB, Johan Sporre - Ericsson AB, Henrik Bilgrav - Topdanmark
Keynote : Legal Update
Data Privacy Guidelines: Leading Cloud Professionals Towards Compliance
In 2021, a legal expert joined us to share a legal perspective on Cloud privacy and compliance, but what have happened in the world of data protection and regulations since then? We are still in the dark, looking for what direction to take moving forward and what we should do meet to be data compliant. Join our legal expert in this session to get and update on the Cloud landscape and insights on how we can move forward working with today’s data regulations.
