On December 16, Global CIO Forum in association with Pure Storage and MDS CS, successfully hosted the Modernisation of Governments and Enterprises VirtualSummit. Data is considered to be the new gold. But merely having access to data is not enough for governments or enterprises. Typically, government IT can’t execute on digital transformation without the right infrastructure.
Meanwhile, agencies across the public sector have been hit hard with ransomware attacks at an average cost of $760,000. And there’s no end in sight. Also, agencies are experiencing more strain on IT systems than ever before. Unexpected events often require new storage solutions to support mission-critical functions. And that is where Pure Storage can be of invaluable aid.
The Modernisation of Governments and Enterprises VirtualSummit covered these topics:
- Quick overview of Pure Storage
- Improved performance and outcomes
- Storage as a Service, Rapid solutions
- Combating ransomware
The keynote speakers for the Modernisation of Governments and Enterprises VirtualSummit were Abdullah Albaz, Sales Manager, Pure Storage KSA; Mohammad Joudeh, Sales Director and Deputy GM, MDS CS; and Haddi Hakim, Systems Engineer Manager, Pure Storage MEA. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion.
