Adoption of cloud technology has historically served organisations primarily as a means of extending their data storage capabilities. However, the demands of the modern world have meant that a far wider range of business activities are now facilitated via cloud-based architecture. This applies across all industries, including utilities organisations that are now increasingly complementing their existing on-premises IT systems with more modern technology.

This webinar focuses on a recent quantitative research study conducted with UK and Ireland IT decision makers (ITDMs), and considers:

  • How utilities organisations are approaching cloud adoption
  • Where the key challenges exist
  • How they can look to overcome these challenges through improving their approaches to data management and data protection.

Our Technical Sales Manager, Richard Hobkirk and Senior Research Manager, Charlie Wood, will be sharing the latest industry updates and answering your questions!
