OUR KEY THEME FOR 2023
The Resilient Cloud
Every Cloud experience is unique, but everybody shares many of the same fundamental needs. You must foresee potential disruptions and deal with them before they become problems.
Business continuity in the face of disruption requires resilient architecture: everyone working in the Cloud must learn how to maximize uptime, avoid data loss, and not sacrifice speed for security. Unlocking those journeys for your customers requires fostering that resilience for every unique circumstance—including circumstances that haven’t been invented yet.

The Digital Supply Chain
Disruption has been the name of the game for the past few years. From supply chains to hiring to the way we work and play, the world has changed—and the Cloud has been at the heart of it all. At CloudFest, we explore the emerging solutions to our new societal concerns that our own technology is driving. Together we’ll unlock how you can aid your customers in everything from getting toilet paper to the places who need it, to the challenges of finding the best remote workers. Those who build the Cloud can leverage the momentum of rapid digital transformation to reinvigorate the supply chain and revolutionize how people are hired, collaborate, and get things done.

Protectors of the Internet
The bad guys are smart, so you must be smarter. Threat vectors are widening in most areas, and as technology advances, the risk increases. For example, quantum computing will bring greater speed, performance, and security—but also quantum-level attacks. Cloud providers need to have robust and creative cybersecurity mitigation plans for both themselves and their customers.
As the building blocks of the internet shift, CloudFest will help you reach your internal security and delivery enablement goals while making sure an exponentially-growing amount of customer data stays safe in your hands. Discover the business and reputational benefits in putting together a world-class defense.

Retention is the New Acquisition
Acquisition grabs all the headlines, but retention actually pays the bills. Particularly after the pandemic boom in digitization, holding onto your new customers is essential.
CloudFest always delivers vital insights to help you drive new customer acquisition and 2023 is no different. However, this year we will directly equip you with skills to maximize revenue, by keeping you squarely focused on fulfilling the evolving needs of your existing customers—making them more valuable to your reputation as well as your bottom line.
