Event Details

CIO's, Infrastructure, Network and Technology Managers continue to face several challenges which come with the modern-day working environment. With the advent of WFH (Working from Home) culture, there is an additional strain to the existing networks as well as an expanded threat landscape to our organizations.

You have to make critical choices in terms of technology, partners and vendors in order to meet their KPI's within their organizations. DTE is at the centre of working with CIOs to help them with the design, deployment, management and support of these networks. In order to achieve this, DTE has partnered with various vendors to ensure customers seamlessly embrace next-generation solutions.
