Under the overall umbrella of Creating Competitive Advantage, the conference will feature sessions on key issues set to drive application development in Europe over the coming year.
- Mobility and the impact of emerging technologies and business models
- Harnessing the Cloud as a means of developing “enterprise grade” applications building on advances in Business Intelligence and “Big Data”
- Collaboration and how to leverage vendor ecosystems and social networking to Create Competitive Advantage
These sessions will be followed by moderated panel discussions which will examine the implications of some of these trends and the issues arising from them, including the challenges of differentiating offerings to create competitive advantage within a highly-competitive applications landscape.

“Over the years the European ISV Convention has become established as the main forum at which leading European ISVs can meet at director-level and discuss key issues amongst their peers and with leading vendors and platform technology providers,” commented Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. “Software development is critical to the success of both the IT sector and European industry in general. Within what remains a challenging economic environment, innovation and the harnessing of emerging technologies are critical to creating competitive advantage.”
