2019 Technology Update – Hybrid Cloud: A Transformation Journey

Posted on


Technology has never moved at a faster pace.  The breakneck speed at which innovation continues to drive transformation highlights more than ever, that it is not cost-effective to continue to install the latest and greatest technology year after year.  With advancements in operating systems, hybrid cloud technology, and the onset of data being used as a resource, the path ahead is becoming difficult to navigate.

Organizations are left scrambling to stay in front of the trends while ensuring their teams are agile and find the most efficient means to ensure their systems are functioning at their best.

This year, our annual Technology Update will not only focus on which innovations are driving trends with our keynote speaker, Alex Salkever, who is a well-regarded futurist and author, but we will hear from a variety of industry experts who know what it takes to get through complex technology transformations successfully.
