The Road to Software Defined Infrastructure

Date: 2nd Jul 2015

Venue: Cabinet War Rooms, Clive Steps, King Charles Street, London SW1A 2AQ

71 years ago Churchill planned the largest seaborne invasion in history, D-Day. CBR invites you to share an evening with us at the heart of where all this planning happened , deep underneath Whitehall.

Mountain View

Churchill’s Cabinet War rooms are an extraordinary look into how this country’s most famous leader lived and led through WW2 and where we think will be a truly memorable location for what promises to be an engrossing CBR Dining Club.

There is a revolution happening in our data centres , fundamentally changing the way IT operates.

In an application led world, an organisation’s infrastructure needs to be responsive, agile and resilient enough to deliver IT as a service. The path to a “Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI)” is one that needs clarity and guidance.

What is the fate of legacy systems? What first steps are needed?

The ultimate outcome is an IT platform built for simplicity and agility . With SDI we see a shift in spending and resources away from traditional infrastructure technology to smart hardware and smart software. This will enable greater investment at the application layer , enabling you to focus more on innovation.
This is not just the preserve of the larger enterprise, mid-sized organisations are perfectly positioned to benefit as well.

Some have started this journey , but most are still at assessment stage , evaluating which partner will ensure the process is a smooth one.

Therefore please join us for what promises to be a fabulous evening discussing the many factors behind this revolution . Business buy-in? Which applications to automate?

All within the amazing setting of Churchill’s Cabinet War Rooms, a truly unique historic setting for this special CBR Dining Club. As well as great debate and networking over a three-course meal and drinks , we have arranged for guests to have their very own tour seeing how Churchill planned every step of his wartime command.

Please register straight away, there is no cost but places are limited.

We look forward to welcoming you.
