The Role of Emerging Technology in Digital Transformation: Cut Through the Hype and Build a Competitive Advantage
Seth Robinson, senior director, technology analysis at CompTIA, and Dave Sobel, host, Business of Tech, MSP Radio, will break down the term “emerging technology” and how it has become a catch-all descriptor for the futuristic advances. Learn the individual trends that fall under the broad emerging technology umbrella and how the next wave of innovation will focus on “artisan IT” and building custom solutions.

How Can I Protect My Business in 2021?

The number of cybersecurity breaches, hacks and cyberattacks are on the rise, which means it’s never been more important for tech companies to secure their businesses. Join Jeff Dawley, president and co-founder, Cybersecurity Compliance Corp., and Dana Liedholm, vice president, sales and marketing, BLOKWORX, Inc., to learn how the pandemic forced experts to change the way they approach cybersecurity and how you can make your business safer from these threats.

A Casual Journey to the Cloud is Wrong...Let’s Sprint

We have three approaches when we want to transform and adopt cloud. Two being well known which causes delays with loss of investment.

  • A leap of faith that things will work out
  • A long planning cycle with a high spend

There is a third, built from the ashes of epic failures. Success created out of a difficult state and a shoestring budget. We will explore that success and model for you to sprint without risk.

Get the Best from Your Team with the Least Amount of Drama

Finding good people is hard and keeping them can be even harder—but it doesn’t have to be. In this session, Mel Savage, coach, The Career Reset, will show you how to manage people to get the results you want, create shared expectations and manage objectives, all while limiting the drama.

Enabling the Trusted Workplace with Location Insights

Following the sessions at 4:30pm ET, we’ll be hosting a happy hour where we’ll kick back, network and learn to mix a few drinks from a mixologist.
