the consumerization of IT is reaching a fever pitch

Tablet computers, smartphones, 4G, social media, gaming, desktop virtualization, and other technology innovations are bringing possibilities and challenges to IT and the workplace like never before. As some corporations embrace the mobile, remote workplace and others start to allow employees to buy their own hardware, IT must go beyond desktop virtualization to manage risk and control performance.

CITE: The Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise Conference & Expo brings together the buyers and sellers of consumerized IT solutions to drive adoption and deployment in the enterprise.

This new, national conference and expo gives IT and Business Executives, Venture Capitalists, and a wide array of Business Technology decision makers, a holistic view of how personal technology is changing and infusing the workplace – with the ability to drive innovation and productivity to new heights. Embracing this trend is critical not only for attracting and empowering the next generation workforce but for retaining customers and creating business advantage.
