Exclusive dinner: Building the digital foundation for an intelligent world


The future is all about intelligence, and digitalization is the path for companies to get there. If you know that cloud services are predicted to account for 87% of company application expenditures by 2030, it is safe to say that the key to successful digitalization is to think cloud native, act cloud native.
