Building Business

The service provider industry is changing. Hosting, SaaS, IaaS, VARs, MSPs, infrastructure, and data center professionals are navigating new territory as they explore new ways to do business. Solution providers rule while those providing outdated services that don’t help customers navigate the cloud are falling behind. Discover new techniques for marketing, partnerships and customer solutions that will take your business to the next level.
 

Strategy

HostingCon has always attracted numerous members of the C-Suite to the conference, with over 60 percent attending in 2016! Whether you’re a CEO, CIO, CTO or CMO, attendees come to HostingCon to meet with other decision makers. Strategy sessions include information on talent retention, financing, mergers/acquisitions, management and growth strategies to help take your business to the next level.
 

Technology and Trends

The internet service provider community uses a lot of buzzwords: big data, internet of things, cybersecurity, infrastructure, and cloud to name just a few. What all of these terms have in common is that they are inspiring innovation and creating new technologies to move business forward. Technology and trends sessions address what is changing in the industry, what the hottest new technologies are and trends in legislation, technology, and security that will shape the way you do business.
 

CyberSecurity

Cybercrime is changing the way we do business. From 2013 to 2015, cybercrime costs quadrupled. Juniper research predicts the same increase will happen from 2015 to 2019, costing businesses $2.1 trillion globally by 2019. As service providers, data breaches can be a huge liability as customers expect full security, whether that is a realistic goal or not. Security sessions explore the latest technologies, mitigation strategies, and criminal techniques. Find out whether your business and customers are at risk. Join us in the exhibit hall for these special CyberSecurity sessions.
