Gartner Symposium  April6-8 on Emerging Trends It's never too early to start planning your conference schedule. Especially when the conferences are designed to help you do your job better. Even better when the conference is in Las Vegas. The Gartner Emerging Trends Symposium/ITxpo 2008 is scheduled for April 6-10 and will attempt to answer What's Next For Consumerization and Web 2.0? With a second Internet revolution imminent, the Emerging Trends Symposium will take a detailed look at consumerization, Web 2.0, social networking and more in a megatrend called Socialize: Building Value in Knowledge & People Networks. It's one of six megatrends that Gartner sees as critical to how business and technology will evolve in the near and long term. Gartner also hopes to give attendees the tools to answer important questions, like: * How do you ensure security in a Web 2.0 world? * How will the growing popularity of social networking affect the way we work, collaborate and innovate? * How will virtual worlds impact traditional business models and how can they be leveraged to gain a competitive edge? * How can I create an architecture that promotes innovation instead of stifling it? With keynote addresses and several different tracks, everyone from CIOs to enterprise architects and planners will benefit. In addition, you'll have an opportunity to participate in Learning Labs, which aim to immerse participants in intense, half-hour super-tutorials to test, explore and understand the features of the industry’s emerging products and services. For once, what you do in Vegas, need not stay there. You'll find yourself equipped with the tools needed to stay relevant and productive in the ever-changing world of technology. Register today!
