How disruptive technologies
aligned to innovations in the Cloud
can drive business change.


Cloud 23 - 9th November 2016


A resounding thank you to all our guests that joined Exponential-e at Cloud 23 on the 9th November 2016 for a ground-breaking seminar looking at how disruptive technologies aligned to innovations in the Cloud can drive business change.

The panoramic views from one of the most iconic buildings in the north-west were enjoyed, and our guests were able to discover more about our Cloud innovation model from our very own technology evangelists, alongside one of our customeers - Vita Cellular Foams.

Our speakers were able to explore how Exponential-e’s innovative hybrid services combine the best of traditional IT competencies, with world leading Connectivity, Cloud and communication services - and make the impossible, possible.

This was all followed by a buffet lunch where guests were given the opportunity to network with likeminded peers, as well as those from Exponential-e.
