EGS-1E Lunch & Learn at Morton’s Steakhouse [US EVENT]
When? 12:00-2:00pm EST

As you know in today’s economic environment, IT is being tasked with doing more with less. When you factor in that 80% of IT’s budget is already spent on maintaining the existing infrastructure, the 20% left over to invest on innovation is a fairly lean amount.

Join 1E on October 2 for this exclusive IT Efficiency luncheon where you can network with leading IT professionals in New York and learn how to reduce the 80% of IT budgets designated for maintaining existing infrastructure, while “beefing” up the leftover portion for innovation.

Key topics to be shared:

  • Supercharging Windows 7 migrations
  • Identify, reclaim, and redeploy unused software licenses
  • Network optimization
