The IT Leaders’ Roundtable

An exclusive luncheon for senior IT executives across Melbourne

Hosted by Google Chrome Enterprise, the IT Leaders Roundtable is set up to offer an intimate online forum for IT leaders from prominent firms in Melbourne.

Our discussions are designed to be very inclusive and interactive, ensuring to leverage the wealth of experience from your senior peers.

Experts include COOs, CIOs, CTOs, CXOs, CISOs, Heads, VPs and other relevant directors in the IT field across Melbourne.

Attendance is by invitation only and is, of course, complimentary.

Tech of the town: the decline of in-house computing in favor of the cloud

Although it has long been the golden standard, VDI is now being challenged by the continued development and adoption of SaaS. The concept of powerful cloud-based computing on speedy and cost-effective tech is increasingly appealing. 

VDI gives companies control with the internal management of both hardware and software, while SaaS boasts end-user agility combined with significant cost savings. Key differences between the two will play out even further following the outbreak of COVID-19, which has accelerated the necessity of the remote worker. What we thought would be five years out is now.

  • How do companies balance between VDI and SAAS?
  • What do 5 years from now look like when it comes to employee computing experiences? 
  • What is end-user computing like in the new hybrid world of work?
