The Must-Attend Event For IT Professionals

IT leaders must act now to ensure that their voice and influence at the 'Strategy table' is maximized. Can you focus less on control and more on collaboration? Can you use EA, BPM, Cloud and additional applications to enable innovation, agility and change? In other words, can you deliver on the considerable promise IT holds for your organization? The Gartner Enterprise Technologies Summit 2011 can help you do all of that, and more. With two intensive days of analyst presentations, workshops and peer interaction, you'll have a deeper understanding of the tools and techniques to successfully deliver IT today. You will experience a deep dive into forward-thinking strategies and global best practices to meet tomorrow's IT demands. The approach is pragmatic; the advice unbiased; the experience invaluable. Only Gartner has the field-tested research, actionable insights and collective expertise to deliver IT information and insights on a global scale.

Special Sessions

In addition to our comprehensive tracks, our Agenda also features several special sessions providing opportunities to learn from and interact with Gartner analysts, industry experts and peers, and top solution providers:

  • Keynote Sessions

    Typically presented by non-Gartner industry leaders, these plenary sessions are designed to be entertaining and thought-provoking.

  • Workshops

    Presented by Gartner or guest experts, these intimate workshops provide an opportunity to drill down on specific "how to" topics in an extended, small group environment. Sessions designed for end users only. Registration required.

  • End-User Case Studies

    Gartner invites a number of end users to personally present leading-edge case studies and answer questions.

  • Analyst One-on-Ones

    Sit privately for 30 minutes with a Gartner analyst specializing in the topic you'd like to discuss. Many attendees tell us that a one-on-one session is worth the price of admission, all by itself.

  • Analyst-User Roundtables

    Hear how your colleagues from various industries tackle problems similar to yours. These small group discussions provide an informal setting for you and your peers to share insight, challenges and concerns on today's hottest topics.

  • SOLUTION PROVIDER SESSIONS
