What is the cloud-facing organisation? What strategies can organisations employ to get the most out of their CRM and information systems, website/CMS and social networking?Sayer Vincent - An Adaptive Approach to Software Procurement(or why ITTs are bad for your health...)Iain Pritchard - Sayer Vincent - www.sayervincent.co.ukStatistically, an organisation's chances of successful software implementation are quite poor. Recent improvements in information technology have helped, but it is still more likely that a new system will fail than that it will succeed. In this session, Iain Pritchard, technology partner at charity specialists Sayer Vincent, argues that the root of the problem lies in the procurement process. Sayer Vincent's Adaptive approach to procurement moves the focus away from technical functionality and, using a combination of process mapping, prototyping and assessment-centre evaluation, ensures a more reliable choice of supplier and system.Dell - Backup and RecoveryChris Flett - Dell - www.dell.comNinety per cent of all stored data has been created in just the last 2 years.
