SFTA Presents: What’s Next? The Future of I.T. – Jan 24

Join us on Thursday, January 24th for an enlightening discussion about the technologies South Florida companies are investing in and what we can expect to see in 2019 and beyond.

Big tech companies across the United States such as AmazonGoogleMicrosoftCiscoIntelOracle, and IBM are pouring billions of dollars into research and development of new technologies for the future. They are often the leaders in the industry paving the way for smaller organizations and the rest of the world.

  • What tech are these national leading companies investing in?
  • What new tech is catching on locally here in South Florida?
  • What are some new tech South Florida’s industry leaders investing in?

According to an article written by Rex Nutting, Columnist with MarketWatch, the United States spends more money on research and development than any other country. We spend over $550 billion dollars a year which is about 25% of the world’s total investment.

Every company from enterprise-sized to small startup is looking for that next intelligent software to bring them to the next level. Whether they are the ones developing new software or just being one the first to use it, companies are becoming more and more open to helping entrepreneurs launch their next big idea.
