Gartner Symposium / ITxpo Barcelona

The Gartner Symposium took place on the 11-14th of November in Barcelona last year. It is the world’s most important annual gathering of CIOs and senior IT executives, attracting more than 4,000 of your peers, and once again Xerox was proud to be a sponsor.

Developments like big data, BYOD, cloud computing, enterprise mobility and the growing importance of security are seeing our digital and paper worlds collide. At Symposium, working with our theme of the agile office, we explored strategies for growth with optimism and realism, uncovering what the workplace of the future could hold.
