Myths, Legends and Eureka Moments
This event will change your perspective on using technology to maximise your business opportunities
‘Myths, Legends and Eureka Moments’ is an unmissable event focussed on the game changing developments coming to the technology industry this year.
Synopsis of the event
With thought leaders and experts from TSG, Microsoft and Sophos, we will aim to bring you fully up to speed on how your business can take advantage of new technology, both now and in the future, bust some of the myths out there about cost, choice in the marketplace and risk, and also provide you with information that will inform not only your IT plans, but your overall business strategy.
All businesses are people businesses, but now more than ever companies need to ensure that the way their people work together is at its most effective – and that everybody is sitting on the same bus, facing the same way, and heading in the same direction.
We’ll be taking guests on an exclusive journey into some mind-blowing collaboration tools and performing some interactive activities that will really get your cogs going.
Last but certainly not least, it seems like we don’t have a week whereby the news doesn’t have a story of some sort of security outbreak or data leak. So, we’ll be scaring the pants off you by taking you into the seedy world of IT Security, but then allaying your fears with some practical examples of how your business can best protect itself.
This is a riveting and entertaining session led by James Lyne, Director of Technology Strategy at Sophos, and shouldn’t be missed by any account.
