Sharing leads to better solutions.

Microsoft Innovation Summit

Join us for the 5th annual event on October 8 in Charlotte, NC!

In past year’s we’ve focused one of Charlotte’s premier technology events on (well you guessed it) … technology! This year we talk technology, but we are laser focused on how technology can drive real world business value, benefits and cost savings. We will have real customers talking about solutions to real business problems. We will go hands on and show you how a cloud first, mobile first strategy really is achievable, cost effective and can make people’s lives better. Reserve your seat today!
