VIP Keynote: Thriving in the Age of Agility




In today's world, what does it mean to be agile?  Join Ed Dzadovsky, Circle K's VP of North America IT, and Gray Taylor, Executive Director of Conexxus, in exploring the impacts and benefits of an agile culture. Fostering innovation, starting from the top down, allows for organizations to be adaptive AND adoptive when the new thing comes around, such as APIs.  And because we don't know what the future holds, an agile IT infrastructure is the ultimate risk mitigator.
