In this virtual meeting, we’re going to have multiple guest speakers throughout Southern California join to share their teams’ thoughts & experiences.

Session 2 - The New Normal: IT Strategies Rising From The Pandemic
Kelly Sullivan, Senior Vice President & Lael Hester, Solutions Architect, Cyxtera

The Covid-19 effect on business has been massive. While many firms have seen substantial drops in revenue, technology companies have experienced growth in demand.

Adapting to these changes has created a “new normal” encompassing changes in operations, increased reliance on the connectivity, more remote work, and staying at the forefront of technology. In this interactive session, we will explore:

- Factors to consider when migrating IT infrastructure away from on-prem as companies reduce their office space
- Connectivity strategies to deploy as demands on bandwidth expand
- Methods of keeping your IT staff safe and engaged in a new distributed workplace model

- Opening Statement from The President

This Virtual Event will be free of charge for ALL users who wish to attend.

Thank You and we hope you can make it!
