What is the DSG Cloud Forum?

This free, half day, event brings together the AWS cloud computing community to connect, collaborate and learn about AWS. The event is designed to educate you about the Amazon Web Services (AWS) vision and inform you about what you need to build, run and manage the AWS platform.

This event, held for the second year, is formulated to educate new customers about the AWS platform and offer existing customers deeper content to enable them to be more successful with AWS.

The DSG Cloud Forum features a keynote address, customer testimonials, technical sessions led by AWS engineers, DSG and AWS Technical Partners. 

Why Should I Attend?

Attending the DSG Cloud Forum will give you valuable insight, from some of Australia’s leading industry experts and experienced customers. Discover how you can transform your IT team into a better functioning organisation, increasing productivity and lowering costs all whilst using technology as a means of competitive differentiation/advantage, moving the needle on key business drivers.

You will learn best practices for deploying applications on AWS, optimising performance, monitoring cloud resources, cutting costs, and more. You will also have opportunities to meet the experts to get your business and/or technical questions answered.

Who Should Attend?

This event has been specifically designed for CXOs and IT Managers. This event has both non-technical content, highlighting the latest announcements and customer testimonials, and technical sessions, led by engineers. Whether you are new to the cloud or an experienced user, you will learn something new at DSG Cloud Forum.
