It is understandable that organisations – which operate in market sectors like legal, healthcare and financial services – take extra precautions to make sure internal and external information is secure and consequently decide to keep infrastructure in-house. A group of tech chiefs gathered in Sydney at a CIO roundtable lunch - in partnership with Virtustream - to discuss the challenges and issues they face when moving core infrastructure to the cloud.​​​

It is understandable that governments – which are sometimes holding information that if stolen, could threaten national security – take extra precautions to make sure infrastructure is completely secure. But these concerns are no longer warranted and recently, forward-thinking public sector agencies are quickly gaining more confidence in public cloud services. A group of tech chiefs gathered in Canberra at a CIO roundtable lunch- in partnership with Virtustream - to discuss the challenges and issues they face when moving core infrastructure to the cloud.​

​CIO Australia, in partnership with Rackspace, hosted a breakfast event in Sydney for tech chiefs to learn about the cloud migration journey.
