Mr. Conophy’s opening address will be followed by our keynote speaker, Corey Williams, Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing at Centrify.
This is a terrific way to start the day and sets the tone for the rest of the conference which features panels packed with top local and regional subject-matter experts.
Also partnering with ITPalooza for 2017 is Ultimate Software, in the top 10 highest revenue earners.
