Craig Jones Technical Director says
This was a fantastic opportunity for the whole team to come together, learn how each department is performing and discover the plans moving into 2018. Many goals were discussed for the future – however one goal that stood out was DataKom’s aim to be a fully 100% cloud provider in the future and have set hard-hitting targets to reach this by 2025. The end of the conference opened up the floor and invited questions for the management team - it’s great to gather in one place, share and discuss the future of DataKom.
It is important for the team to know the direction in which DataKom is going and to learn of new products coming to the market”
