Todd Lewis, CEO of Summit IT Solutions attended the Everything ChannelEvents 2011 Xchange Americas Conference held in Denver Colorado from August 10-13 2011.
The purpose of the annual XChange Americas Conference is to coordinate the demonstration of new products, services, and solutions, insight from leading industry speakers, and unique networking opportunities.
Solution Providers attended XChange to review the newest products and services available to increase their productivity, find solutions to their pain points, update their technology and maximize their ROI.
The Conference included a Solution Pavilion that combined an informal business venue of hands-on demonstrations and one-on-one meetings with leading IT vendors.
After attending the event, Lewis noted “Attending events like this is like ‘drinking from a firehose’. I attended almost 30 different events and received presentations from about the same number of vendors. Prior to this event our team agreed that we need to incorporate a more comprehensive backup solution into our service portfolio. Not only did I leave the conference with product information from three great vendors, each offering slightly different approaches, but more importantly I received invaluable feedback from peers who have actually implemented these technologies. Almost all the presentations talked about cloud based services, whether we like it or not, this is the future of IT.”
