    Panel Debate 'Has IT just got easier?'

    Moderated by Ian Campbell

    Delegates are invited to ask questions from a panel that includes Martin Curley, Director, Intel Labs Europe; Paul Rellis, Managing Director, Microsoft Ireland; John Purdy, CEO, Ergo; Keith Riley, Director – Programme & Systems, Primark and Martin Mc Cormack, ICT Director, Beaumont Hospital. The session will be moderated by Ian Campbell, Technology Journalist.

    Breakout Sessions

    After the panel discussion you can attend up to three 40 minute sessions and learn more about Year Zero, by digging down into the components that facilitate new ways of working. Subject experts from Microsoft and Ergo will guide you through the solutions and what they do, the benefits they deliver and the processes they improve. The good news is that you may already have elements of the software running on your systems, which means minimal investment for a faster return.
