Managed Services World Congress Agenda Highlights

Managed Services World Congress 2015 will feature more about real-life operator experiences and what can be learnt from not only best practice deals, but also from deals that didn’t go well. It will follow the theme of “Are managed services a “win-win” or a “lose-lose” scenario?” and how could we ensure many more “win-win” scenarios in the future, especially through focus on IT outsourcing and virtualisation, while evolving to more intelligent networks.

What’s NEW at MSWC 2015?

New topics, formats, innovation and networking awaiting for you in Cannes on November 24-25 include: 

  • In the conference room: Operator experiences and MSP expertise in IT outsourcing, brand new case studies, lightning talks from innovative companies, the enterprise angle in managed services and more
  • In the exhibition hall: Tools to measure the effectiveness of vendor project management, product demos and case studies display (operator and vendor best practice projects)
  • Additional new learning and networking opportunities: Operator hosted lunch tables, space for 1-2-1 meetings throughout the event, analyst clinics, detailed post-event wrap-up report by Ovum analyst, a Managed Services Worldwide working group will be formed by the afternoon of Day to measure progress in the industry.
