IT Europa's eighth European ISV Convention is a pan-European event that brings together the leading independent software vendors with leading hardware and software platform providers, service providers, systems integrators and solution providers to develop business partnerships and capitalise on the evolution of the IT industry within an increasingly applications and solutions-driven world.

Beyond the cloud - Creating Competitive Advantage
- harnessing the power of connected technologies to drive digital business

At the European ISV Convention 2015 delegates will have an unrivalled opportunity to meet their peers and hear, at first hand, the views of major hardware and software vendors and service providers on how to create competitive advantage by harnessing the power of connected technologies to develop solutions to drive digital business.

"Organisations across Europe are looking for solutions that will deliver real value for their business. Increasingly, that means finding smarter ways to capture and analyse data and integrating new cloud-based solutions with legacy applications," stated Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa.

"At this year's convention, ISVs from across Europe will hear the views of key industry experts on how to create and market business applications that integrate information from across the organisation, intelligently analyse diverse information sources and support the more rapid development of applications that create competitive advantage."

The event is designed to set the agenda for the following 12 months and address the most pressing issues in the software industry. The unique format of the European ISV Convention gives delegates the chance to listen to industry experts give their views of the marketplace, join in panel discussions on those topics, meet with major vendors and service providers in boardroom style sessions, engage in one-to-one business meetings and network with industry peers.

Now in its eighth year, the European ISV Convention has firmly established itself as the primary event for directors of Europe's most progressive ISVs.
