Calgary, Canada, March 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Brent Grisdale, President of Rigstar Communications Inc. announced today that the company, along with its partners iTel Networks, GCI Industrial Telecom, will be hosting their first annual ‘Remote Communications CIO Conference’ on April 16 and 17, 2011 in British Columbia.
The conference will bring together an intimate group of senior business and technical leaders to discuss key challenges of, and innovative solutions for, executing business and IT deliverables in a remote network environment. This initial conference will focus on remote unified communications’ best practices, and how leveraging voice, data, platform and application unification can accelerate enterprise business growth and competitive advantage.
“The rapid delivery and continuity of remote IT infrastructure is essential to oil and gas operations, but harmonizing remote IT operations with desired business outcomes has been a continuous challenge for CIOs,” said Robert Hart, Rigstar Communications’ Chief Revenue Officer. “Our conference will discuss transformational methods of executing service delivery across an expansive and distributed wide area network.”
“Extending the cloud to improve end user productivity is probably the number one objective of a CIO today. Reaching an end user in the middle of nowhere is challenging at the best of times. I am excited to get into a room with some very smart people and discuss disruptive ways of solving this problem,” concluded Hart.
The keynote speakers listed below will provide practical solutions to attendees, along with the proper planning, deployment and support of remote IT infrastructure to assist enterprises in dramatically improving their business’ productivity, customer satisfaction and top line revenue.
