Ensuring you take a leadership position in Financial Services on BrexIT – what’s your IT strategy?
Whether you are one month, six months or one year into an IT project (or have put your next major IT move on hold) the UK’s exit from Europe is now a major strategy and execution consideration.
Today the post-BrexIT relationship between the UK and the EU is a complete unknown.
Just about the only thing we know for certain is that once activated Article 50 will take up to two years.
Yet amid all this uncertainty IT leaders across all sectors will continue to be tasked with ensuring platforms and infrastructure are flexible and responsive to any eventuality while delivering full compliance along with responsiveness to business changes in mobile, IOT and security.
All at a lower visible cost.
For example as the UK and EU diverge Europe will implement the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). What will this mean for UK companies?
“If BrexIT isn’t top of mind, it should be. Companies need to be thinking about how Brexit changes GDPR. It could negate it if Brexit is complete and drastic, or do nothing at all if GDPR forms part of the UK’s “special relationship” with the EU. And, of course, it could mean everything in between!" -Len Padilla, NTT Communications VP Strategy EMEA.
The London financial services sector has been identified at the facing the greatest risk and potentially the greatest upheaval.
Conversely it has been reported that, “Continental consumers potentially stand to lose more than UK consumers in terms of the cross-border provision of financial services in the event of a Brexit, which could be a driver for the UK being given a special deal to permit access to continue.” Either way, the implications for IT investments could not be more serious.
Join us for this very special CBR Dining Club along with NTT Communications and EMC to discuss how you can take a leadership position as IT prepares for BrexIT.
There will be no easy answers.
Topics covered on evening will include:
- Has your organisation set in motion any IT strategy goals to deal with BrexIT?
- How will UK firms in the Financial Services Sector begin to plan for a Post BrexIT World?
- Does the UK’s relationship with the rest of the EU matter to your IT strategy?
- Do you believe that there will be further impactful upheaval as the UK negotiates its exit from the EU?
Share your views with a senior audience of your IT management peers from the financial services sector and hear from experts on key considerations and take away actionable information to help maintain IT’s leading role in turbulent times.

Cloud Now, Cloud Futures, shifting enterprise wide applications to the cloud
Fundamental business needs have pushed enterprise application software vendors to embrace the cloud. But while software vendors build tomorrow’s SAAS-based businesses, for customers, heritage is not something that can be abandoned.
This presents large end user organisations with a major challenge:
How to re-platform existing enterprise-wide application environments to the cloud?
How can CIOs untether their enterprise applications from traditional infrastructure stacks and shift to a cloud consumption model ‘in flight.’
What are the key considerations?
Start with the fundamentals: What is the infrastructure transformation business case for the IT function? For the wider business?
For the CIO, what are the risk implications for
- Business continuity
- Data migration
- Data integrity
The move to the cloud is inexorable. The agenda is set.
But for anyone with a legacy, moving long held ERP, Finance, HR, CRM and other application workloads to a the cloud needs solutions built on deep expertise and experience.
This CBR Dining Club with hosts NTT Communications and NetApp and in collaboration with Accenture will explore in depth this most thorny problem.
Join us to hear from Philippe Chauffard, Accenture’s Managing Director, Cloud and Digital Infrastructure Lead EMEA and Latin America, a veteran of delivering large scale solutions for enterprise clients and service providers. As well as delving into the problem, this event will explore the solutions at a strategic level and where applicable in services, infrastructure and technologies.
This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from one of the world’s leading solutions providers and to share experiences and exchange ideas with an audience of your peers on the challenges and opportunities around application migration to the cloud.

The Triple A Datacentre: Available, Agile, and Aligned
Strong commercial forces, coupled with rapid technological changes, are putting more pressure than ever on owners and operators to design and run their datacentres to the highest standards. If they don’t, there could be dire commercial consequences, or workloads could be moved across the cloud to a different venue. Datacentres must be designed to optimize uptime with the help of the best technology and thoroughly applied processes. But that is not enough: they must also be agile – able to adapt if the workloads, competitive environment or technologies change, and every datacentre needs to be efficient – appropriately designed, resourced and optimized for the customer’s needs at any point, and aligned to the business environment and the appropriate workloads and applications.
At this industry-leading one-day Datacentre Summit, experienced datacentre owners, operators and managers will share their thoughts with 451 Research’s top datacentre and cloud analysts, joined by the leadership and members of the Uptime Institute. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss:
- Current and emerging best practices
- The impact of cloud on connectivity, scale and automation
- Design and process changes
- Latest and emerging technologies shaping datacentres
