The theme of the CIO Summit this year was Refocusing IT and digital strategy to drive your organisation’s post-pandemic recovery. So, it could not be more fitting that Waterford Technologies sponsored the event.

It is safe to say that the past 12 months have been less than smooth sailing for organisations globally. The pandemic brought about a sudden move to remote working and digital interactions with clients. Most organisations had to completely rethink how they do business.

Many would also agree that the past year has brought about immense pressure and a mounting workload for CIO’s, IT Managers, and their teams as they continue to keep the business moving forward.

Over a year in, we may finally be seeing light at the end of the tunnel, but remote working is here to stay in some capacity. Now is the time to reflect on the last year and come up with a long-term strategy?

We were delighted to be amongst such a fine selection of sponsors and speakers from all industries as we navigate the lessons learned and IT’s response to Covid 19.

Waterford Technologies featured amongst some of the top current IT topics on the day such as Cyber Security, Remote/Hybrid workplace capabilities, cloud capabilities, prioritising spend and managing costs to deliver ROI and of course data management.
