Equinix Special

What's getting in the way of your digital transformation plans

Online Event — 24 January 2024

Whether consolidating service in the domestic market or eyeing international expansion the traditional barriers to growth remain in place, even as the solutions become more affordable and attainable.

This problem of matching the speed of infrastructure rollout to commercial plans will be debated at the next TechFire webinar on 24th January in association with Equinix, which will ask the burning question: ‘What’s getting in the way of your digital expansion plans?’.

Speaking will be Thanos Chatzis, head of technology, infrastructure, with Kaizen Gaming and John O’Donoghue, senior global solutions architect at Equinix.

"Despite the forced acceleration of digital transformation projects during the pandemic there still seems to be little conversation between the commercial and IT ends of the business," said TechFire moderator Niall Kitson. "This can lead to stalled growth and missed opportunities. By exploring our burning question we will give both sides the opportunity to learn about their concerns and ambitions.
