Digital transformation has been evolving for decades and today it’s become more than a trend – it’s a necessity. The organizations that adapt and adopt for the digital world are the ones reaping rewards in today’s business landscape. But to achieve that success, you must start with a solid foundation.

Join CDI and our industry-leading partners to learn how we’re helping IT departments accelerate their transformation to the digital world by implementing a digital infrastructure foundation. Watch our sponsors try to beat the clock as they participate in 10-minute lightning presentations discussing hybrid cloud, automation, SDN, intelligent operations, security and digital workspace.

Lightning round partners include: Alert Logic, AppDynamics, BigPanda, Fortinet, Freshworks, Igneous, Nutanix, PagerDuty, VAST Data, Varonis, Zerto and 3CLogic!

Additionally, we'll demonstrate how the digital foundation is enabling developers to innovate quickly while simultaneously reducing cost and risk.

You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the virtual booths of our sponsors, witness Comedy Central’s RoastMaster General, Jeff Ross, host and roast our panel of industry thought leaders, and participate in a happy hour Q&A and acoustic set with Bret Michaels, lead singer of the multi-platinum band Poison. Attendees will be entered to win an autographed guitar!
