…and so are we! Program Framework are proud to be joining our Consortium partners for the Microsoft UK tech convention from 1–2 November at the ExCeL Centre in London. In fact, we’re delighted to announce that we are a headline sponsor with Consortium.

Consortium will be front and centre

Consortium is made up of five award-winning Microsoft Gold Partners, tying together the product knowledge and expertise of Content and Code, Inframon, Modality Systems, Coeo and Program Framework. To be a headline sponsor at Microsoft’s landmark conference is a real highlight for us in 2016. We’ll be enjoying the keynote sessions along with everyone else, but we will also be hosting our own, advising and presenting on Digital Transformation and what it means for your organisation. See and enjoy our video premiered during the keynote!

Throughout the event, we will be holding a specially dedicated #ConsortiumCafe at stand 41, where you can grab a coffee and learn more about what we do, how we work and the benefits that our collective experience brings to a company looking to improve their digital strategy. We believe that digital transformation in the enterprise requires a holistic, organisation-wide approach. At Future Decoded you can get introduced to Consortium’s deep knowledge and expertise that will be highly valuable for your company.

The future is the marriage of people and technology

This year’s event looks like a particularly epic couple of days, featuring Professor Stephen Hawking as the headline speaker. Other inspirational keynotes will come from Martine Wright, MBE, 7/7 survivor and Paralympian, as well as Laboratory Director at Microsoft Research, Chris Bishop, and Toni Townes-Whitley who as Corporate VP, Worldwide Public Sector at Microsoft leads a team of over 2,000 serving government, public safety, education and healthcare in more than 100 countries. Alongside these distinguished speakers will be Big Data evangelists, fashion retail giants, and cyber security experts, among others… and that’s just day 1!

Turning to day 2 is the dedicated technical day with everything on the table from Artificial Intelligence and open source/open web to HoloLens development and our transforming relationship with technology. Look out for the exclusive HoloLens developer session and keynote which will showcase how Holographic Computing will shape our future. Hear from Chris Messina, lead experience developer at Uber on everything from start-ups and conversational apps to hashtags and the world of open source. Expect talks by tech evangelists on tech governance and Big Data. So whether you’re an IT pro, a business exec or just a fan of the latest technology and how it’s shaping our lives, there’s plenty at Future Decoded to excite and delight you.

For leaders of business

This is an event dedicated to equipping business leaders with insights, motivation and skills to build their businesses to be better and stronger. Over the two days, Future Decoded will focus on how any organisation can become a digital business. There will be seminars, talks and workshops on how to make the leap from where you are today to becoming a company that embraces data and analysis. Challenges will be highlighted and so will the potential benefits.

There are three key phases that will be the bedrock of Future Decoded this year:

  1. Inspiring the Digital Business
  2. Designing the Digital Business
  3. Building the Digital Business

As the name suggests, the Future Decoded event is all about showcasing the current and future trends in tech and how they can help empower you to make the most of the next big opportunities for your business. The two-day exhibition is all about enabling you, your organisation and the important people who help run your business to reach their potential.

Last year’s event attracted over 10,000 visitors, with 15 keynotes across a variety of topics. The attendees made use of more than 400 sessions and networked with 60-plus exhibitors and 42 partner sponsors. All in all, quite a lot of activity in just two days! And we can expect this year to eclipse it.
