New conference: Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise in San Francisco

I’m sure it will have some boring parts, and some helpful parts. But how fantastic that there’s a mainstream conference like this about the topic of consumerization! :-)

Thanks rankandfile:

March 2012 brings the debut of the Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise (CITE) conference and expo in San Francisco, California.

Managed by IDG, and sponsored by Cisco and Citrix, the event will likely be a bit more staid and devoted to things bureaucratic. (The example agenda previews sessions on governance, asset lifecycle, risk management.) But it makes for an interesting compliment to Box.net’s lively Boxworks conference, and the long-running Enterprise 2.0 series of events.

You’re encouraged to submit a speaking proposal to CITE by November 18th, 2011.

I’m here in person, so won’t be watching much video. But I will for sure be checking out Paul’s keynote this afternoon. I really agreed with his description of new IT, though 90% of VMware makes doesn’t quite match that vision yet.

I’m patient. :-)
