Panel discussion: How a global pandemic accelerated cloud adoption across every industry

Retailers have become ecommerce first; banks are now mobile first. Doctors are conducting appointments via video link, even events are taking place virtually. Now, as we approach a post-pandemic economy, most organisations are accelerating their digital transformation to implement new business models that provide touchless services with zero physical contact. At the same time, many of these organizations are struggling with fewer resources and slashed budgets. In this webinar we’ll look at how cloud adoption has been fast forwarded, as organisations have searched for simple and speedy ways to launch new business critical applications.
