From recent industry conversations, not only do many believe it is, but are actively transforming organisations in preparation for this likely eventuality. Join our panel of leading experts at next week’s A-Team Group Data Management Summit on March 6 in London, who will offer insight and fresh perspective as to how the groundwork is being laid and where it could deliver real business benefit.

We will not only discover what other business advantages can be derived from using a utility provider, but what groundwork is necessary work towards achieving this structure and also to remain compliant with regulatory obligations.
