STEPPING INTO THE FUTURE - WHAT WILL THE CHANNEL LOOK LIKE IN 10 YEARS' TIME?
Paraphrasing Darwin's words, the most successful businesses are not the strongest, nor the most intelligent ones, but the most adaptable to change. Businesses that will do well when the economic climate bounces back will be those keeping up with rapid change.
This session will offer unique insights into future trends for the UK IT Channel:
• What will the cloud look like in 5 years' time? How will it change your job roles and responsibilities? How will you communicate with your staff, your customers and suppliers?
• Mobile technologies have become an integral part of our lives, how are these exciting technologies going to shape the future of the workplace? How do you balance the security challenges with the productivity and efficiency gains you should expect to realise?
