Softsource would like to invite you to an exclusive event on Wednesday 16th October, where our keynote speaker, IDC industry expert Chayse Gorton will discuss key findings from the 2019 IT Services Ecosystem study conducted across ANZ.

Chayse will discuss how as-a-Service models are no longer seen as just a tool for reducing costs. Instead, results from the ANZ study found that organisations adopting these models are charging ahead of their competitors by enabling faster and more effective deployment of tools and technologies that could only be dreamed about 5 years ago.

For C-level decision makers, as-a-Service models are fast becoming the bedrock for innovation and a key indicator of whether or not an organisation (and its leadership team) is prepared to take full advantage of the digital economy within NZ.

Alongside Chayse Gorton, you will also get the opportunity to hear from Softsource’s David Small, who will be exploring the practical application of as-a-Service models: Backup as a Service, Network as a Service with insight into how some New Zealand organisations are executing these models to a T.

The event is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn how as-a-Service models can best align with your business’s needs and budget, enabling you to reach business objectives and drive future growth with total support across your IT landscape.
