Cloud and mobile: perhaps the two biggest buzzwords of today’s enterprise lexicon. And while it’s true these terms are used in almost every article about business technology today, it’s not without good reason. IT leaders know that having a solid understanding of and strategy for implementing cloud and mobile technology extends well beyond watercooler conversations at the next big conference – it can be an important driver for business growth.

So, we’re throwing down the metaphorical gauntlet and challenging IT leaders to rethink their strategy for the cloud and mobile enterprise.

At our upcoming Identity and Mobility Forums in Chicago and New York this spring, we’ll dig into these strategies, discussing topics such as enabling a secure mobile workforce, automating the employee identity lifecycle, delivering deep integrations for Office 365, Box, Google, and Salesforce, as well as providing simple and secure access for products and portals. We’ll address how we’ve seen applications, devices and data become increasingly complex and fragmented – and explain why that's not the way that it has to be.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and we’ll have a happy hour reception following each event. The best part? Both events are free! (Thanks in part to our amazing sponsor, Box.)

So, here are the details...

Where + When:
Tuesday, May 12 - City Winery in Chicago
Tuesday, June 2 - The Standard High Line in New York City
