<div> <div><img alt="User-added image" src=";feoid=00N9000000EVCh7&amp;refid=0EM90000000SfZc"></img><br><br>Today the world of IT is changing faster than ever. You might have a degree or two, but they are fast becoming irrelevant as the fabric of IT undergoes a rapid change like we&#39;ve never seen before.<br><br>Robotics, AI &amp; Machine Learning, Brainwear, Many kinds of Drones, Sensor tech Cloud Computing, Fog, IoT, Virtual and Mixed Reality and more - all these are coming into mainstream IT as they need their own Security, Data and Analytics, Management and deployment. This doesn&#39;t even include the changes in classic IT such as Open Networking, NetDevOps, Elastic Fabrics, Terabit Networking, LPWANs and the list goes on.<br><br>These are all going to impact the IT role you do today. The problem is that most IT degrees do not include these areas - even today, and if they do, it is only a light touch as the technology is still evolving.<br><br>So what do you do? Give up? Change careers? Well, you can, but you don&#39;t have to. With an understanding of the landscape, who is doing what, where it is all going and the options you have available to you to keep up to date, there no reason that capable IT Professionals can&#39;t surf the coming wave and even come out on top.<br><br><br><u><b>Agenda:</b></u><br><b>5.30pm - 6.00pm </b>- Registration &amp; Refreshments <br><b>6.00pm - 7.25pm</b> - Presentation <br><b>7.25pm - 8.00pm</b> - Networking &amp; Refreshments </div> </div>
