As public and private cloud usage has continued to rise throughout the pandemic, it is clear that what was initially a sudden shift will now become a permanent change for many organisations. This rapid change will create the agility that many organisations are desperate for but will likely also create longer-term problems including budget overspending and orchestration.

As IT leaders face the concurrent challenges of continuing to support remote working, enabling a possible return to the workplace and tightening budgets, a recent survey from Snow Software revealed that 91% of the 250 global IT leaders surveyed are altering their cloud strategy as a result of the current economic climate. What’s more, twice as many say they are accelerating cloud migration (45%) and digital transformation (41%) versus putting those initiatives on hold (22% and 21% respectively).

Join CIO UK and Jay Litkey, EVP of Snow Software Cloud division, to discuss how the surge in cloud infrastructure use represents a fundamental shift in how organisations operate and how these trends hint at a considerable change in enterprise cloud strategy.
