The Changing Digital World: ITSB 2016

Published 1st September 2016

IT Lab Event Reveals Insights into the Changing Digital World at Leading IT Strategy Event

Our annual IT Strategy Briefings (ITSB) showcased how organisations can utilise innovative technology and adapt to the rapidly changing digital world to drive success and business growth.

IT Lab was joined at ITSB 2016 by partners Dell, Egnyte, Microsoft, Mimecast, Okta and Zscaler. Presentations from four industry experts explored ITSB16’s key theme: ‘Driving Success in a Changing Digital World’.  The events were held at the Concorde Conference Centre at Manchester Airport and then at The McLaren Technology Centre.

A word from IT Lab CEO Peter Sweetbaum:

“ITSB is a unique event and a valuable opportunity for UK business leaders to evaluate their IT strategies and discuss their challenges with industry experts. We’re not only demonstrating to businesses what innovative and disruptive technology is out there, but also how these can be applied with pragmatism to drive success.

“The continued strong support for ITSB demonstrates the increasing acknowledgement from business leaders that you don’t have to be a technologist to use technology to change your business, and that adapting to new technologies truly can drive significant success.”
