Future Gazing – Crystal Ball or SUSECon?


Everyone could use a crystal ball to see where things are going and what their future holds! And the way that IT is rapidly changing, having one eye on the future whilst doing your day job can be really difficult.

So how can you keep on top of the latest technology and what do terms like the Internet of Things, Digital Transformation, really mean to my business, what does this mean to my department, what does this mean to my job?   How and where can I find all the information I need to keep ahead of the game?

Each year at our annual conference SUSECON we focus on delivering content that helps with the everyday workload and gives you a practical guidance for dealing with the future.

This year is no exception.  Our focus this year is on helping you Define your future.  Not using a crystal ball!  But through keynote sessions, customer case studies, networking, hands-on training and specific sessions that aim to bring you the best of content from industry guru’s, your peers and our own experts.

We’ve broken the week down into different content that aims to support you in some of the business issues that you are feeling the most.

  • How do I transform my business? And when is the right time to do so. – Time to Transform (Day1)
  • How do I keep my business agile? And ready for the future – Adapt to Win Day 2
  • How do I keep my business online? And keep up with future demands. – Down with Downtime Day 3
