NetApp EBC 2018

November 7, 2018

Last Wednesday (31st October 2018), we set off for Amsterdam. Our destination – NetApp’s Executive Briefing Centre (EBC).

Just like in February when we last attended, we brought along a group of key IT leaders from both public sector and commercial organisations. The aim of the trip was to discover more about future NetApp technologies and business transformation solutions in a two-day event, filled with the latest insights from the greatest minds at NetApp.

Throughout the event, our customers attended presentations about new products, high level plans and learnt about the direction that the industry is moving.

The presentations were thought provoking and attendees were faced with strategic questions relevant to their current strategy which we believe to be key to any business’ digital expansion. Sometimes you need to step out of your day to day environment and stop and think, what new digital initiatives could you be launching?

The interactive nature of EBC means people are able to discuss important areas of IT with both NetApp executives and our own, as well as product experts and the engineers responsible for designing technology roadmaps.

The visit gave our guests the chance to fully immerse themselves in NetApp’s vision, strategy, and expertise, while learning about and exchanging new ideas, discussing and solving business challenges and building stronger relationships.

We love taking our customers to EBC. It’s an enriching experience for everyone involved.

We’re always looking for new people to take, so watch this space for our next trip.
