TRANSFORMIT – your fabric of the future

Is your business ready to start its digital transformation journey? Would you like to explore some options to help you take your first steps?

Date: 26th April 2018
Venue: Northampton Data Centre

Digital innovation is driving substantial transformation within businesses, making them more competitive, agile and disruptive. However, with new technology and increasingly complex IT environments comes a host of new business challenges. Many organisational infrastructures are either set up on premise or are hosted with disparate public cloud or colocation providers. The problem for many businesses is that their organisational applications and services are moving to multiple providers, with independent data, applications and systems.

We understand how hard it is for businesses to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of digital transformation, while managing day-to-day operational needs and keeping an eye on budgets. The most effective way to enable your digital transformation journey is by sharing knowledge and experience with other business leaders in your industry.

This is why we are hosting a ‘TRANSFORMIT – your fabric of the future’ event to enable you to do just that. The event will be a great opportunity for you to learn from your peers, network and hear from our Technology experts to help solve your digital transformation challenges – making your businesses more scalable, agile and mobile.

You will hear from Node4 customers and share experiences on how your business might benefit from cloud, collaboration and enhanced connectivity.

Our customers will show you if private, public or hybrid cloud is right for your business? Also how to scale your business operations to control costs and reduce risks, enabling you to drive innovation across your organisation.

Node4 as a managed services provider offers aggregated cloud capabilities; placing workloads onto the right cloud services, building true hybrid solutions, which include AWS and Azure alongside our own hybrid, cloud capability. Offering solutions for security; business continuity, backup, DR, and connectivity services is very important to this new hybrid model.

We can show you how to transform your business technology and achieve your objectives by combining applications, data and services.

The event will cover the below topic areas and more:

• Infrastructure as a service
• Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud
• Colocation services
• Security and business continuity
• Backup, Storage, Disaster Recovery
• Collaboration tools such as Voice & Video calling, Virtual Meetings, and Messaging Apps
• Managed Desktops

You will also be able to demo and explore Node4’s new IT and technology developments.
