CSCEvent Evening Event This July

We’re very pleased to announce our 2nd CSC Event taking place this time in the evening of July 16th.  It will still be at the fantastic Soho Hotel in London which everyone thought so successful last time but this time we’re trying something a little different.

The event begins at 6pm and will run until 9pm with only two sessions followed by drinks and possibly further drinks afterwards.

Last time our biggest feedback was that it was shame to choose between sessions and that it would be good to see both Technical and Work & Life so we will be running two sessions one after the other.  A Technical Session in the Screening Room and then we’ll all move to the Crimson Bar for a Work & Life session and since we’re in the bar, we’ll finish up with some drinks.

As always we hope for audience participation and we’d ask you to register and invite friends and colleagues – this is far outside the IBM world and our discussions are very broad.

Registration is here

Technical Session:  This will consist of 3 x 10 min presentations followed by an 30 min open floor discussion
“Exciting Technologies”
Where is the next surge in technical innovation coming from and how do we position ourselves for that?  Wearables?  Cloud Storage?  Collaborative Working? Searching and Finding Content?  Every day we discover or hear about new technologies and technology areas that sound promising.  Which ones are exciting and how do you decide between standing back, monitoring, beta testing or positioning yourself for adoption?

Work and Life Session:  This will be an open floor moderated discussion. All voices welcome!

“When People Are The Problem”
People collaborating together can do amazing things, but there is always the potential for personality clashes, misunderstandings and friction, particularly when change and issues of ownership are involved. In this session we will discuss how these issues can arise and what techniques we all use to finesse them or whether, when reality crashes in, collaborative working can work at all.

Do you work with collaboration platforms? Then come and meet your peers at a Collaboration Stack Community event.

This is a technologically agnostic networking event for those who work or are interested in collaborative software. Our goal is to create space for ideas, to learn from others and get a view of how various sectors like cloud, mobility and security are unfolding.

It’s a chance to step back, consider and develop your strategy in the context of others’ experiences. We hope you come along with a willingness not just to listen but also to share.

Whilst making new contacts, you can share ideas, debate best practice and explore emerging technologies.

There will be presentations from people with huge amounts of cross-industry experience, but this is not to be a passive event, we want to hear from you – What challenges are you facing?

And after each session there will be the opportunity to thrash out new ideas.

Here are just some of the topics we hope to cover at future CSC events:

  • Development futures
  • Server management and monitoring
  • Cloud email
  • Cloud applications
  • Instant messaging
  • Social software
  • Security
  • Privacy of data
  • Audit and compliance
  • Encouraging user engagement
  • Building and maintaining communities
