The future of ICT procurement
12 February 2019
Driven by various factors such as as-a-service delivery models, cloud computing and mobile apps, user choice is now as important an influencer as enterprise requirements.
Vendors, distributors and resellers of ICT have had to change to cope with this new reality. Service providers and technical partners have evolved towards new ways of providing for emerging needs, with deeper relationships and greater choice, tailoring solutions through deep knowledge of the customer’s business.
TechLive Future Channel is a unique, hybrid event that aims to track the changes in the business of ICT.
With a morning programme for the channel and afternoon sessions for end users, the event will mix exhibition with presentation to inform decision makers on the critical topics affecting their organisation.
Expert panels, moderated by TechPro editor and TechFire chair, Paul Hearns, will tackle issues under headings such as cloud computing, digital transformation and security.
The panels will cover:
- Regulation (GDPR)
- Data fabrics
- Service mesh
- Serverless computing
- AI platforms
- Cloud as a foundation for digital transformation
- AI and automation
- Citizen developers
- Ready-made platforms
- Data as a service
- Restructuring for digital transformation
- Top security concerns for enterprise
- Edge computing and security
- Securing and enabling mobility
- Emerging threats
- Attendees actively encouraged to participate and to address questions to the panels, as well as engage with experts directly on their exhibition stands, maximising opportunities to get informed.
Expert participants are coming from Citrix, Datto, Entrust, Three, Sophos, Interxion, canon, Dell EMC, CA Technologies, Veritas, Webroot and more. For attendees on relevant education tracks, the Irish Computer Society has awarded 10.5 continuous professional development (CPD) points to attendees for the event.
