Despite being a key driver for growth, ‘Business Technology’ has traditionally been viewed as a subject for IT departments and dedicated ICT professionals – with most events tailored specifically to this audience – but many SMEs don’t have the luxury of a dedicated IT department.
Which is why we are pleased to launch BizTech LIVE as a key component of the Kent 2020 portfolio, to meet the growing need for information and advice about the new technologies, tools and techniques that can help SMEs to innovate and thrive. This exciting new event is designed to help business owners and managers to understand key technologies, identify the ones that will benefit their business most and ensure they are using them safely and effectively.
The UK buys and sells more online than any other G20 country and many of Kent’s small firms are already making innovative use of the Internet to deliver real savings, better productivity and sustained revenue growth opportunities. But research from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has also highlighted significant missed opportunities, partly due to lacklustre connection speeds but also due to low awareness of powerful innovations such as Cloud, SaaS, Big Data, the Internet of Things, Mobility, Social Media, Service Automation, Future Communications, eHealth, eLearning, eGovernment, Digital Cash, Digital Payments, Augmented Reality and Embedded Intelligence.
Demystifying many of these technologies in our new BizTech stream will be experts such as keynote speaker Mike Jones from BT on the new age of business communications, Digital Ambassador to the EU Roger Williams launching FSB’s ambitious ‘Digital Garden’ initiative and Katie King from Zoodikers on the imminent emergence of Artificial Intelligence.
SEE YOU THERE!
