Higher Education and Research IT Leaders Attend Tech Transformation Event

February 15, 2018

On 7-9th February 2018, Q Associates hosted a group of key leaders in IT from Higher Education and Research to attend the NetApp Executive Briefing Centre (EBC) in Amsterdam. This 2-day event focused on future technologies and business transformation.

Visitors from around the globe attend the EBC to discuss business requirements, exchange ideas, and explore new ways to solve business challenges. It provided an interactive environment which enabled discussions with key Q Associates and NetApp executives, product experts and the engineers responsible for designing technology roadmaps.

The EBC enabled Q Associates to give the IT leaders exclusive access to NetApp’s vision, strategy, and expertise to enable their IT vision for the future. Helping them build the strategic relationships needed to achieve goals and prepare for the next wave of IT transformation.

“It was very useful to gain an insight into the way the industry is moving over the coming years. It was also very beneficial to share knowledge with others across the industry.” Head of Infrastructure, Higher Education Institution

 “An extremely useful experience giving the opportunity to discuss customer issues and strategy with NetApp.” IT Manager, Higher Education Institution

 “I particularly benefitted from the information I have been given about products we already use and the opportunity to discuss the matters in more detail. Also, I enjoyed having the opportunity to listen to presentations about new products, visions and high-level plans which we may benefit from in the future.” Systems and Storage Manager, Research Institution

Q Associates are looking to host another EBC event later on in the year. This event will be open to Commercial Organisations and Public-Sector Organisations.
