SIMCAC CxO Exclusive Breakfast on July 10th at 8am


Have you signed up -  spots are filling up quickly!

This roundtable, open to current and prospective members who hold a C-level title (or are the highest ranking IT executive in their organization), will focus on re-starting business in the new "Post Pandemic Norm."  This month we will be discussing End Point Management and End User Support as a remote workforce is likely to be more than just a temporary situation.  Leveraging each of our experiences will certainly spark some interesting conversation around technology and support moving forward.

The concept of VDI as new IT norm is not so far fetched anymore. You won’t want to miss this discussion - register today!
