Westcon-Comstor Partners with NetApp to Host Top Executives in Regional First Virtual Summit
Partnering with NetApp, Westcon-Comstor will host a virtual event to bring its customers across Sub-Saharan Africa an integrated view of how performance, technology and teamwork need to be pooled together to elevate the cloud experience.
Participants are expected to welcome Konstantin Kostenarov, Chief Technical Officer at Ducati Racing to kick the conversation around innovation and digitalisation into a new gear, offering insights into how winning teams use technology to drive performance in their businesses.
No stranger to using analytics and data intelligence to develop the top-performing Ducati motorcycles, Ducati is a NetApp customer with a keen understanding of how to build superior data management infrastructure.
"The boardroom battle for digital transformation has been fought and won, and the cloud is decidedly the infrastructure victor. Our role in the industry today is to provide clients with a framework for their cloud computing needs that support their applications, remote users and storage requirements," states Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa CEO Rakesh Parbhoo.
Parboo adds that innovation in the data centre is the message we want to take to our partners and customers in Africa, not only is it possible, “but it is here today through partners like NetApp.”
In an African first, Westcon-Comstor will also host Matt Watts, Chief Technology Evangelist at NetApp and Kristian Kerr, Vice President - EMEA Partner Organisation at NetApp. Together they will offer insights into how today’s organisations are building data fabrics that drive business outcomes.
Touching on the shift to remote working, the team will also provide a snapshot of what it takes to embrace smart strategies that improve business continuity, employee retention, and foster overall growth.
Breakout sessions will be available in both English, and Portuguese and attendees can look forward to an interactive event.
