Proposed Agenda

9:30 Arrive for registration and coffee

10:00 Welcome and introductions – Andrew Pring, Group Vendor Alliances & Supply Chain Director

10:05 Enabling digital transformation in UK mid-market organisations - Nathan Marke, CDO
Fed up of hearing the same old stories about digital transformation? Stories of digital giants and born-in-the-cloud companies with huge budgets, beanbags and basketball hoops, that don’t seem to apply to you? CDO Nathan Marke brings digital into the real world of UK midmarket organisations with stories of how Daisy is helping its customers do amazing things, today, across UK private and public sector markets.

10:35 Drinking our own Champagne, the Journey to Public Cloud - Mark Scaife, Head of Cloud Practice
Hear from Mark Scaife on Daisy’s own business transformation - from a traditional Managed Services Provider operating in our own datacentres and running multi-tenant private cloud platforms - to being a leading Managed Public Cloud services provider integrating the old with the new. Mark will talk about Daisy’s own journey over the last few years; readying the business, the cloud and datacentre strategies including Daisy’s unique collaboration with Microsoft that’s had recent press attention. In closing he will share a couple of recent successful migrations of long standing Daisy customers to public cloud and discuss how this has given them a platform to grow while being backed by Daisy’s Professional and Managed Services, giving the customer a familiar safe pair of hands and trusted advisor status moving forward.

11:20 Coffee and networking

11:45 Business Availability & Digital Resilience - Andy Dunn, Availability Services Director
The move to a digital strategy presents new risks and considerations for business. With changing platforms, cyber threats, evolving systems of engagement and an increased dependency on the outcomes driven by digital, the resilience of the platforms isn’t enough. Can traditional Business Continuity thinking be adapted to support the digital and hybrid cloud agenda?

12:30 Lunch and networking

13:30 Road to hybrid cloud - Alex Wilmot, Cloud Solutions Director
Hear from Alex Wilmot on how Daisy works with its customers to realise the potential of the Cloud. Discover how to develop a strategy for the future whilst considering external contributing factors to ensuring the creation of a viable blueprint for migration. Alex will explain the format and methodology Daisy utilises and how each element relates to the wider business approach and the outcomes required to support the roadmap, both tactically and strategically. In closing he will share some examples and feedback in how the strategy and blueprint designs have translated into real life migrations.
