Hi Friends, 
On Wednesday 09 May, EOH will host its second annual EOH Connect conference. This years’ conference is titled Fast Data - Business at the Speed of Thought and will be hosted at The Sandton Convention Centre for industry leaders involved and responsible for the ever-growing technology needs of their organizations.

Following feedback from elite members of the Information Technology sector who attended the conference last year, EOH has taken the topic to the next level this year to provide a platform for ICT role players to explore unconventional and disruptive thinking in the space.

“Fast Data is a buzzword we hear in many interactions with our various clients and in simple terms; Fast Data is the ability for businesses to leverage multiple streams of real-time data to make in-the-moment decisions. EOH Connect this year, will unpack this categorically for our attendees,” explains Rob Godlonton, CEO of the EOH ICT business. “The disruptive nature of Fast Data is improving business processes and driving operational and cost efficiencies like never before hence the theme for this years’ conference,” adds Godlonton.

The 2017 event titled, Digital Transformation: Living in a two-speed world’ was a huge success and was attended by more than 1 900 ICT professionals and decision makers. Keynote speakers included René Carayol – International Business Leadership guru, while presentation tracks covered topics such as; Implementing Continuous Delivery, Disruptive Digital Built-in, and Leapfrogging to the New Data World.
