Montreal Forum | Technology and Innovation | Tuesday, October 18, 2022

In the last 24 months, the pace of business in Canada and everywhere else has continued to increase. Pressure on work teams is creating a strong need to review and optimize some current ways of doing things. Fortunately, the world is now going through some of the most significant technological advances that are transforming the way that companies and public organizations operate today.


Which technological transformations will have the greatest impact on your company next year?

To give you an overview of these observed trends and those to come, we are bringing together many experts, IT executives and their project leads in Montreal on October 18:

| Theme 1: How to accelerate your transition to the Cloud while preserving your team’s talent and expertise, controlling your costs and services, and responding to the need to integrate your existing systems (“legacy apps”).

| Theme 2: Increase your company’s protection performance against new forms of attack. How to shift from management in silos, which has become cumbersome and complex, to an integrated and modern approach to security management.
(Please note that the cybersecurity workshop will take place via private meetings / presentations instead of a group session. This will respect the sensitive nature of the topic discussed and allow each participant to get personnalized advices on their situation) 

| Theme 3: Give meaning to your company’s data use strategy. Take advantage of new platforms and artificial intelligence (AI) to expand your clients’ experience, increase collaboration between your teams, and connect with your partners securely.

First, an information component during which our invited experts will summarize their observations, industry changes and trends, as well as give concrete examples of business projects. Then, an interactive component where several participating companies will share their issues, approach and lessons learned from their own experience.




Jazz cocktail

After the workshops, all participants will be directed to the main hall for the opportunity to speak with many other local businesses and expand their own networks. Meet our specialists and partners onsite to ask questions. Under the jazzy ambiance of Montreal’s terraces, a selection of cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres will be served.
