A Private Cellular Network (PCN) leverages cellular access points to provide coverage and connectivity, like a scaled-down version of a public cellular network. It’s a dedicated network that combines the control, flexibility, and fixed cost traditional wireless network, like Wi-Fi, with the reliability, mobility, coverage, capacity, and security benefits of cellular.

According to Gartner, “85% of organizations will embrace a cloud-first principle by 2025”, and as customers expectations become more demanding, understanding the intricacies of cloud migration and modernization is crucial. However, cloud migration and modernization projects do not always go according to plan and understanding essential trends can guide you through potential pitfalls. From the evolution of multi-cloud strategies to the surging influence of AI and automation, Precisely will unravel key insights, enabling organizations to harness the power of cloud computing for unprecedented success and operational efficiency.

Prepare for a journey through the treacherous terrain of corporate AI integration. In this session, we’ll dive into the unavoidable headaches that come with the flooding demand for obligatory deployments of AI in enterprise environments. We’ll explore incorporating AI solutions into corporate environments and how we can build unifying guardrails, collaborative design approaches and integrated governance processes that help the company find its way. Join us as we navigate through the high waves of AI adoption, seeking to ensure cybersecurity measures are considered, and major risks are managed amidst aggressive AI adoption efforts. All while trying to keep our heads above the shark…err… snark-infested waters of corporate bureaucracy.
