Well organized summit with the right mix of culture (French/English International).
Head of Application Services, Givaudan
I learned a lot at this event and have a number of takeaways from the sessions. I like the short presentation formats and that there is time to chat with the speakers. I enjoyed the meetings being back-to-back because the speed seemed to really work out perfectly and it prevented a bunch of wasted time. I was able to meet some interesting vendors, too. The meetings and event, in general, were well managed.
Managing Director - IT, Charles Schwab
The event was well organized and informative. I enjoyed gaining/sharing perspectives and networking with industry peers. The industry is always changing and it is imperative for executives to attend summits like this one in order to share/gain perspective. Also, it is becoming increasingly important to leverage vendor services to do some of the heavy lifting for the roll-out/implementation of disruptive technologies such as Cloud and Mobile due to reduced IT budgets and focus on quick time to market.
Director Enterprise Solution Delivery, CBS Corporation
Overall a great experience. Very knowledgeable and experienced attendees which resulted in great conversations.
Director IT Management Services, Enbridge
While the presentations were excellent and educational, having an opportunity to meet and discuss common problems with other IT executives was by far the most valuable component of the summit. The combination of general sessions and think tanks was excellent.
