‘Imagine’ a secure-connected future – Xalient Summit Returns to Abbey Studios

A global icon

Named after the road and the studio where they did most of their recordings, Abbey Road was The Beatles’ eleventh and final album in 1969. Fast forward to present day and Abbey Road is still the most famous recording studio in the world, renowned for its creativity and technological excellence. It is a global icon that for the last 90 years has been the musical home to not only The Beatles but Pink Floyd, Ella Fitzgerald, Kate Bush, Oasis, Radiohead, Ed Sheeran, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, Adele – the list just goes on and on.

On the 9th November 2023, Abbey Road will open its doors once again to welcome Xalient for the Xalient Summit 2023. Our guests will be welcomed into this amazing venue to make history.  Not only will attendees get the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of legends, but they’ll get the chance to see for themselves the piano Adele played during her recording of Hello.  They can walk the famous zebra crossing, write a message on the world-renowned graffiti wall, experience first-hand the recording studio famously used by John Lennon to record Imagine, his ubiquitous ode to world peace, in collaboration with Yoko Ono.

Solid takeaways from the event

A secure-connected future isn’t just about cybersecurity, networking, and identity. Our speakers delve into the challenges today’s modern IT departments face as they digitally transform their businesses, with anecdotes from real-life use cases and customer experiences.

On a more sobering note, according to the latest Gartner CIO research, more than half of digital initiatives lag leadership expectations, with 59% of CEOs saying they take too long to complete and 52% saying they take too long to realise value. At the event, Prof. Sally Eaves will discuss how we can accelerate realising those expectations with helpful tips and sound takeaways attendees can look to implement.

Additionally, our speakers will also examine how ground-breaking new AI and ML technologies have the power to automate and facilitate an environment where innovation can flourish and where constant change isn’t perceived as a problem; it’s the solution. ​
