Open House on the Road: Connected Business roadshow

July - October 2019

Connections are everything in business, allowing personnel and organisations to come together and achieve more than they could alone. Technology is driving connectivity across enterprise, giving businesses and people more tools to communicate, share resources and collaborate on work from anywhere in the world.

We’re proud to be sponsoring the 2019 Institute of Directors (IOD) Connected Business roadshow, where we’ll be hosting roundtables to discuss crucial factors in the application of technology in business.

To register for one of these events, please visit the IOD registration page here.


Dates, venues and times:

 

Wednesday 10th July 2019, 2pm – 6pm

National Conference Centre, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull B92 0EJ

We’ll be discussing: The true cost of deployment.

With mounting pressure on organisations to keep overhead costs down, what are the financial and operational challenges a business needs to consider when choosing their IT infrastructure? We’ll be discussing the delicate balance between initial outlay and total cost of ownership, the true cost of support, and how choosing the right device can impact your IT personnel.

 

Thursday 11th July 2019, 2pm – 6pm

Manchester Marriott Victoria and Albert Hotel, Water Street, Manchester M3 4JQ 

We’ll be discussing: The end of ownership? 

As core software moves to subscription licensing, ‘Device as a Service’ style procurement increases and user-owned devices encroach further into the workplace, we ask: is this the end of the corporate-owned device? Is purchasing outright a thing of the past? And if so, what are the pros and cons of this for IT departments? We dig in to these questions and more to discover what benefits subscription models can bring to your business. 

 

Thursday 26th September 2019, 9am – 2pm

We’ll be discussing: Remote working.

Remote working is on the rise, with an increasing range of roles being moved out of the office and onto the road. IT teams are being challenged to make more business-critical systems available from anywhere, but what are the pros and cons of this? How does it impact security? And which equipment is up to scratch? Join us to discuss this and more as we ponder the fate of the brick and mortar office.
