Propel Media today announced the line up of keynotes for their inaugural IT Connect Expo, an event targeting business decision makers and IT executives from mid-size companies, taking place at the Santa Clara Convention Center October 17-18, 2007, Silicon Valley, CA (http://www.itconnectexpo.com).
The four Keynotes will focus exclusively on IT issues for midsize companies and include sessions from: Jay O'Conner of Netsuite, Caroline Seymore of Cognos, Gregory McStarvick of SAP, and Tony Kender of Oracle. Subjects covered will include software as a service (SassS), business intelligence, maximizing limited resources and how to compete with Fortune size companies with effective IT strategies.
"We've designed IT Connect Expo to help dynamic midsize companies as well as venture backed start ups, find the right technology to accelerate their growth", said Jon Graves, CEO of Propel Media. "Our event is a unique combination of product seminars presented by leading vendors, supplemented by impartial analyst content and online networking."
Attendees can choose from over 80 sessions that cover four key themes:
1. Applications and SaaS - Integrated Suites, Finance, CRM, ERP, HR, Software as a Service
2. BI and Performance Management - Business Intelligence, BPM, Analytics and Dashboards
3. Security and Data Management - Security, Back Up, Virtualization, Data Center, ECM
