Leading European ISVs and Solution Providers to meet in London – March 2015
(London, 25 July 2014) IT Europa announced today that it will be staging the eighth annual European ISV Convention on 25 March 2015 in London. The event will bring together leading Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) with hardware, software and service organisations to explore and address the issues affecting the development of the IT Industry in Europe and to develop and strengthen partnerships aimed at supporting solution-based sales. Over recent years ISVs have been very much the driving force behind growth within the IT and Telecoms markets. This seems set to continue this year with Gartner predicting Enterprise Software sector growth of 6.8 % in 2014 – more than twice the rate of growth in IT spending as a whole (3.1%).
The European ISV Convention 2015 will build upon the success of the seven previous conventions, which have been staged in Brussels, Frankfurt, London and Berlin, and attract leading ISVs from all over Europe. The convention will feature a high-level conference programme with leading industry speakers on topics that include the challenges and opportunities facing ISVs in Europe. Under the umbrella theme of “Beyond the cloud – Creating Competitive Advantage – harnessing the power of connected technologies to drive digital business,” presentations will also cover such areas as managing information across Hybrid IT, Mobile and M2M environments, developments in business analytics, collaboration, and cloud computing and the impact of new business models on the future of application development and delivery.
“Organisations across Europe are looking for solutions that will deliver real value for their business. Increasingly, that means finding smarter ways to capture and analyse data and integrating new cloud-based solutions with legacy applications,” says Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. “The European ISV Convention 2015 provides a unique opportunity for Europe’s ISV community to come together to address the issues affecting the development of the software applications industry. It also provides a framework within which major hardware and software vendors, as well as service providers and system integrators, can meet and engage with the directors and decision makers of Europe’s most significant ISVs and Solution Providers to create business opportunities.”
The European ISV Convention 2015 will take place at the Lancaster London Hotel, London, on 25 March 2015. ISVs wishing to attend the convention and vendors, distributors or service providers interested in sponsorship opportunities can find further information atwww.isvconvention.com
