2:15 PM Workshop | Stay Sane And Maintain: Protecting Your Infrastructure By Rethinking Your Maintenance Strategy

Infrastructure maintenance can take up an enormous amount of spend, as well as take investment away from vital new products - so what are the key strategies you can implement to effectively get costs down?

  • What types service providers are worth investing in to help with maintenance – or should you invest in internal resources?
  • Proactive vs. Reactive - what's the best strategy for your function?
  • How do you decide when something is no longer worth maintaining? 
  • Optimizing maintenance contracts

4:55 PM Interactive Roundtable Discussions

These interactive roundtable sessions take a deep dive into the specific areas you came to learn about. Sit and learn in an intimate format from the speakers who have had an impact on their company and industry. Take control of your own event experience and don’t be shy! Ask questions (or answer them!) alongside other conference attendees who are dealing with the same challenges as you network with industry peers with very similar challenges, interests and responsibilities.
