Real-World Stories: Infrastructure Strategy to Improve Performance in Emerging Markets

Jul 27, 2021 3:00 pm4:00 PM EST


During our virtual events, we encourage senior professionals to share & network with like-minded industry peers. Each session is moderated by a BWG Connect professional to ensure that our conversations remain on topic and answer critical questions that the audience truly cares about.

All audience members will have the ability to ask live questions and will have access to introductions to any of the attendees following the event. We're always open to making connections to others within our network as well. Come join the BWG Community!

BWG Connect & Zenalyer invite you to participate in an interactive discussion with your peers discussing strategies for infrastructure improvement.

As always, there will be no sales pitches and there is no cost to join.

  • Differentiation (Bare Metal, Hybrid, Public Clouds)
