Join Softcat's Chief Technologists on the 9th May for a 'Pint of Tech' at Williamson’s Tavern, London.

With a complex and fast-moving marketplace, it can be hard to keep up with the latest developments and what this means to your business. So, we've challenged our Chief Technologists to condense their knowledge and learnings into pint-size sessions that cover everything you need to know, and nothing that you don’t.

The afternoon will be broken down into 10-15 minute talks from our Chief Technologists followed by 15 minutes for discussion and to refill your glasses.

  • 4 pm - Opening statements: Dylan Foster-Edwards, Account Chief Technologist, Technical Design

So you want to ‘do’ digital? Four cornerstones to support your digitalisation efforts
Attend this session to understand the four cornerstones that should underpin your digital strategy, without which your transformation will be slower, harder and more expensive.

  • 4:15 pm - Adam Louca, CT for Security – ‘Why does more security make us less secure?’

What Trumpets, Trojans and Takedowns can teach us about cyber security 
Outline: Integration, automation and collaboration are some of the cornerstones of enabling a digital business but supporting these changes can cause erosion of our conventional security models. What does security look like in an de-parameterised world?

  • 4:30 Break
  • 4:45 pm - Dean Gardner, CT for Cloud – ‘Cloud formations – How the major players line up’

Cloud Geeks and Infrastructure Jocks – A hybrid cloud match up
Understand how traditional on-premise vendors and the hyperscale cloud providers are joining forces to tackle the challenge of a cloud-first culture without moving the mountain. 

  • 5:00 pm - James Seaman, Account Chief Technologist and Dylan Foster-Edwards, Account Chief Technologist  ‘Strategic Customer Engagements'
  • 5:15 pm - Networking and discussion
  • 6:00 pm - Buffet dinner and drinks

We look forward to you joining us for a pint!
