Posted on May 23, 2017 by Jeff Flanagan

Markley has always placed great importance on being involved in the local Boston community, supporting area institutions and participating in the city’s premier technology events – which is why we are thrilled to announce that in addition to being a Gold Sponsor, our Chief Technology Officer, Patrick Gilmore, will be speaking at the 2017 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium this Wednesday, May 24.

The MIT Sloan CIO Symposium is a world class, one-day conference, held at the Kresge Auditorium on the MIT campus in Cambridge, MA. The event attracts more than 800 CIOs, senior IT executives and MIT academic thought leaders, who collaborate and explore how innovative technologies and leading-edge research can accelerate technology success. For 2017, the event will focus on “The CIO Adventure: Now, Next and… Beyond,” discussing how to navigate through the hazardous and exciting CIO adventure.

Patrick Gilmore will participate in the panel “Navigating the Clouds,” at 1:15pm in the Mezzanine Lounge on the third floor of Stratton. Patrick will be joined alongside moderator John Dix, Editor in Chief, Network World and the following panelists to discuss how cloud computing is revolutionizing IT: David Giambruno, CIO, Shutterstock; Nathan McBride, SVP, Innovation Architects and CIO, Amag Pharmaceuticals; and Fabio Veronese, Head of the ICT Infrastructure & Networks Solution Center, Enel. The panelists will investigate the promise and the pitfalls of cloud computing, and touch on best practices for selecting and managing cloud providers.

Here at Markley, we pride our self on providing reliable, cloud resources that allow CIOs to spend less time worrying about overseeing operational matters so they can focus on what really matters, the organization’s vision. If you’re attending this year’s sold out event, be sure to swing by Patrick’s session, and keep an eye out for Markley executives on the show floor to learn how Markley’s cloud services can help improve your organization.
