CIO WaterCooler Consultants Speaker Alastair Pooley

IT leaders have worked at pace to enable all-remote work forces and ensure business continuity. As the economic impact continues to spread, focus will likely shift from protection against immediate uncertainty to mid and long-term planning through the ‘new normal’.


In this session we explore how visibility of your technology landscape, whether on-premises or in the cloud, will enable  improved insights and greater governance.  We will discuss technology management strategies which will help meet your organization’s needs today and in the future.
