Kelser High Rolling at the 2011 IT Summit
On November 29th, the region’s CIO’s and IT Decision makers met together to discuss the upcoming challenges and solutions the tech community faces in 2012 and beyond. Organized and hosted by the Connecticut Technology Council (CTC), the event took place in the Mohegan Sun Ballroom, which was filled with approximately 120 attendees.
CTC member Kelser Corporation was proud to be a part of the hand-selected technology exhibitors at the Summit, taking its place among other providers such as EMC and Iron Mountain. In the ever-evolving landscape that IT professionals face, attendees were provided with valuable insight from industry professionals and their peers.
“This event was very well organized and executed by the CTC. It provided a great opportunity for area IT professionals to get together and share knowledge. Kelser was delighted to participate and to add our 30 year experience to the mix,” said Lisa Carroll, Marketing Manager at Kelser Corporation.
Speakers included IT Professionals from Gartner, Mohegan Sun, ESPN, and other organizations who discussed the cloud, CRM, social media, IT leadership, and much more. Three breakout sessions as well as breakfast and lunch rounded out the day’s schedule. Carroll found Gartner’s keynote speech particularly interesting.
“Gartner is a household name when it comes to IT, and [speaker] Gene Alvarez is a compelling reason why. He illustrated the need for CRM in a way that even a non IT professional would understand and appreciate.”
The event concluded with an exclusive tour of the casino’s 36nd floor High End Gaming Room.
According to Lisa Carroll, Kelser will have a robust event presence in 2012, hosting and sponsoring various events throughout the year, the highlight of which is the 2012 CT CIO Forum in April, sponsored by the CT chapter of SIM.
