The Importance of Investing in Digital Infrastructure

Shifting your IT infrastructure to the cloud can seem daunting, especially as technology continues to rapidly change and develop in the face of changing consumer demands in a post-pandemic world. But embracing the power of the cloud in your modernisation journey brings numerous advantages, including unparalleled scalability, agility and security.

However, the benefits of embracing the power of the cloud in your IT ecosystem will only continue to help you achieve your organisational goals if your technology remains current. With Windows and SQL Server 2012 rapidly reaching end-of-support from July 2022, understanding how essential it is to transition your outdated legacy systems and ensure your IT environment remains secure and supportive has never been more important.

That’s exactly why we wanted to share with you the following leadership roundtable, focusing on investing in digital infrastructure for an agile future. Guest speakers at this event were Mark Anderson, Microsoft’s Chief Security Officer, and Scott Bales, a strategy and innovation thought leader. Together, Mark and Scott discuss and break-down the following topics:

  • Why investing in digital infrastructure is essential for an agile future
  • How moving your legacy applications to the cloud is simpler than you may think
  • The risk involved with not updating legacy systems

And that’s just the beginning! Here’s just a sample of what you can expect:
