The Theme
Disrupt, Innovate & Grow - Innovating In a Time of Chaos

Today’s progressive solution providers face two major challenges:

  • Disruptive Technologies -- that alters the IT solutions landscape and threaten established vendors.
  • Hyper-speed pace of change – which has created one the most chaotic periods in decades.  Leadership must adapt to meet these challenges head-on.  Those who want to succeed and emerge as best-of-breed must master the mind shift needed to innovate and embrace disruption, or risk losing market share.

"Disrupt, Innovate & Grow - Innovating in a Time of Chaos," is designed to help IT leaders master the mind shift needed to innovate, embrace disruption and emerge as best-of-breed. This year's conference will feature presentations by additional renowned IT thought leaders as well as opportunities to network with executive peers, learn about the latest technology and market trends from prominent CIOs and participate in strategic meetings.
