Silicon Republic Publishing has joined forces with Trigraph Professional Services to deliver an events programme that will dig deep into issues surrounding technology management and ICT investment.
Ireland’s leading technology publisher, responsible for Digital Ireland and e-Thursday in the Irish Independent as well as siliconrepublic.com, has taken the step to reinforce the themes and messages of its most recent launch, Knowledge Ireland. “The magazine fills a gap in the complex issues surrounding deployment and strategy, and we want to do something similar with the events,” said group editor Ian Campbell.
“Part of this process depended on finding the right partner,” continued Campbell, “a firm that had the expertise in training managers and business leaders in cutting-edge technologies. After I attended a Trigraph briefing for my own education I left realising that I had found a partner for our own plans,” he added.
Trigraph has developed a range of up-to-the-minute ICT and process-related executive briefings in its own right.
With Silicon Republic Publishing, Trigraph managing director Jim Maher believed it could offer something different. “We want to deliver in-depth briefings that mix critical information and analysis with strong case stories. Delegates will leave with real conviction about what to do with the technology in terms of maximising their investment.”
Trigraph briefings are underpinned by many years’ practical implementation experience on the part of Trigraph’s principals and consultants.
They are designed to provide decision makers with the maximum useful information in the minimum time. For the Silicon Republic events — entitled Technology Management 2005 — high-profile customers will add their experience of vendor deployments for half-day briefings that Campbell says will be very focused and comprehensive.
“As someone who spends an inordinate amount of time attending conferences, product launches and business briefings, I know the value of a good event and the criteria that makes something worth attending,” he said.
“No waffle, no sales pitches and enough valuable advice to justify the price of admission. Best of all, you walk away feeling good because your brain has been stimulated and you have acquired some new knowledge that you didn’t have at the start of the day.”
The first event, entitled How to Optimise Your Communication Networks, takes place on 21 April at The Berkeley Court Hotel in Dublin. See event ad right for more details.
