TechLive - How the business of ICT will be done

The world of information and communications technology is changing at an ever-greater pace, and the way Irish organisations consume technology has changed — as has the channel that serves them.

TechLive: Future Channel charts these changes, talking to vendors, distributors and CIOs to understand how changing needs are driving developments.

The event will present vendors, distributors and resellers who are developing expertise and solutions to suit business needs, based on deep technical knowledge, training and resource back-up.

Hear from industry leaders who have begun the transformation to become solution-driven organisations and what that means for every layer, as well CIOs who are enjoying the benefits.

In a mix of conference and exhibition, speakers will include distributors who are changing their operating model to become solution providers, helping their resellers to facilitate clients in implementing solutions, through expanded portfolios, strategic partnerships, and education and modelling resources.

TechLive Conference Agenda:

Morning Conference Line-Up 9am – 12.30pm 

Channel view sessions:

The sessions are structured around the CIOs’ respective experiences in dealing with digital transformation and organisational change, and how interaction with the channel supports, or not, their efforts.

The vendor and distributor speakers will describe their efforts to create channel structures that reflect the new demands of CIOs as they drive transformation agendas.
