Customer Event Focuses on Software Enabling Security, Mobility, Cloud Computing, and the Internet of Things
San Diego (PRWEB) October 14, 2015
Zones, Inc., today kicks off its CustomerConnect Business Conference, a three-day event focused on software. During the event, attendees will gain knowledge of the ever-shifting software environment and how software empowers the digital enterprise, which encompasses security, mobility, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things. The Zones Software CustomerConnect conference, which is open to select Zones customers, takes place at the Rancho Bernado Inn in San Diego.
“For organizations to run effectively and ensure the highest productivity gains, they must have the right software tools in place,” said Todd Leeson, vice president of Partner and Product Management, Software at Zones. “At CustomerConnect, the world’s leading technology brands will share the best practices and key considerations that companies need to be thinking about to drive positive business outcomes through the use of software tools and applications.”
The Zones CustomerConnect conference features a keynote address by IDC Research Vice President Amy Konary. Konary will present on the topic of “Key Trends in Enterprise Software.”
“The software industry is going through a phase of dramatic change with the advent and adoption of 3rd Platform technologies,” said Konary. “This driver, as well as other key dynamics, is leading to the obsolescence of traditional pricing models and the development of new business models. It is now more important than ever that IT buyers understand the options available to them and think strategically about the ways in which they budget for and purchase enterprise software.”
