VALUE INNOVATION WILL HEADLINE M-FORCE 2018
M-Force is an exclusive private networking event for Miratech clients, partners and friends from around the world. M-Force attendees gather from a variety of sectors and disciplines to gain a deeper understanding of innovations being brought to market by Miratech and our Partners. Participants learn from world-class speakers, peer-to-peer networking and breakout sessions. The conference provides extensive business development opportunities for our global network of attendees.
This year’s theme is Value Innovation.
We will explore how by creating new approaches to partnering with companies, investors and each other we can redefine how Information Technology is viewed in the marketplace. Moving from an internal department beyond just a service, to a true strategic partnership.
There have been many industries that have undergone Value Innovation over the last decade, such as the recent 3PL explosion that has created the outsourced logistics services marketplace. Miratech is building a vision of the future where software R&D and IT operations can, should and will also become a services marketplace. Learn more
