** Note that this event will be on a Wednesday, not the usual Tuesday**
== About the Event ==
Most Infrastructure teams (think cloud, compute, storage, networking, etc.) within Enterprises have been slow to adopt Agile, CI/CD, and a Software-Defined-Everything (SDx) mindset because the programmability of the infrastructure solutions was insufficient.
Over the past 2-3 years Cisco’s Global Infrastructure Services team (GIS) has been on a SDx journey to orchestrate all infrastructure services in software. Chuck Churchill, IT Director, will drive an interactive discussion as he share’s GIS’ strategy and learnings around SDx.”
