A Showcase of Innovation and Inspiration at Ingram Micro ONE 2019
From Nov. 18 to 22, more than 1,600 attendees–including Ingram Micro associates, reseller partners, vendors and members of the press–convened at the Gaylord Rockies resort in Denver for the biggest and best ONE event ever.
New Features Highlighted What’s New in IT
ONE 2019 had several firsts–from the fabulous immersive opening presentation of the general session to the Solutions Showcase featuring such standouts as the Microsoft/Intel dome and Cisco live podcast booth. A new technology tracks format was introduced at this year’s event, offering breakout sessions that gave participants the opportunity to delve deeper into specific areas of interest, such as big data, IoT, security and XaaS.
An Integrated Retail Experience Infused with IoT Technology
A definite highlight of this year’s ONE was the IoT retail pop-up store where visitors had a unique opportunity to learn firsthand how IoT solutions from innovative companies like Advantech, Fortinet, Scale Computing and Zebra are transforming the retail experience. The solutions on display included heat map and store traffic flow camera-based technology, smart price tags and shelf inventory tracking, as well as a software-designed hyperconverged infrastructure designed specifically for the retail industry.
Keynote Speakers Look Ahead
Rami Rahim, CEO of Juniper Networks, Ratmir Timashev, co-founder of Veeam, and Renee Mauborgne, co-director of Blue Ocean Strategy, provided valuable perspectives on where the technology industry is headed–and the continuous challenges facing organizations as they undergo digital transformation. Attendees came away with insights they can use to position their own and their customers’ businesses for success moving forward.
