IDC IT Forum & Expo

IDC, the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services and events, announced the speakers confirmed to-date and a preliminary agenda for the IDC IT Forum & Expo, which will take place from June 4-5, 2008 at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston, MA.

Now in its third year and growing, the conference has become a must attend event for IT and business executives interested in leveraging technology to enable and transform business models and processes. Unlike other industry events, the IDC IT Forum & Expo is content-driven, and sessions focus on end-user case studies from leading organizations that offer a glimpse into realworld solutions to the issues that IT and business executives face.

The pioneering spirit of early space explorers will be captured by Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, during a keynote address to attendees that will surely inspire them to make their own "giant leaps" in innovation, collaboration and technology.

"IDC is pleased to announce the preliminary agenda and speakers for the third annual IDC IT Forum & Expo. The sharing of best practices among IT leaders, business executives, and our analysts is the most effective way to move the industry forward, " said Dennis Philbin, Senior Vice President, Vertical Market Business Units and New Ventures at IDC and Conference Chairman. "The case studies presented at this event highlight the successful alignment of IT and business value."

In addition, there will be a separate, invitation-only IDC CIO Summit. Co-chaired by John Gantz, IDC's Chief Research Officer, the IDC CIO Summit is a specialized two-day meeting that focuses on delivering high-level practical and strategic solutions to overcome the challenges faced by today's CIOs. The Summit gives CIOs the opportunity to interact with and learn from each other. Speakers confirmed to-date include Norm Fjeldheim, CIO of Qualcomm, Inc.; Larry Clark, CIO and Managing Director of Randstad North America; William Cross; CIO of Seminole Electrical Cooperative; and William Homa CIO of Hannaford Bros. Co.
