The Software Defined Enterprise - Session Sponsored by Amcom

AWS Summit 2014 Perth - Breakout 4

It’s time to ride the software wave – for too long IT organisations have been hamstrung and spread thin by having to manage the infrastructure and applications, rather being able to focus on delivering the benefits that the business demands. During this session, Brett explores why we (as IT professionals) should be thinking about driving everything we do with software innovation; how that relates to the cloud (and why Brett hates that word); and what the path forward is.

Brett Looney, Head of Innovation, Amcom will be presenting this session. Brett has been involved in the telecommunications & information technology sector for over 25 years. He has been a key part of a number of highly successful, national technology businesses where he actively contributed to the growth of their operations. Brett has developed a solid reputation as a creative thinker and spokesperson for the ICT industry.

In 2011, Brett joined Amcom as Head of Innovation, leading the use of new technology across the group and Amcom’s national customer base.
