  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Dennis Diamond

    This conference brings together a great cross section of IT procurement professionals in a format that fosters peer to peer sharing of current market intelligence, innovative ideas and creative problem solving. In addition to the peer to peer sharing, many of the sessions are led by speakers who are credentialed professionals in their fields of study. Attendees leave well equipped to go back to their employers and provide greater value in performing their jobs. ITPS puts the “pro” in “professional” for these attendees.

    ITPS offers a unique opportunity to not only attend presentations and workshops on topics vitally important to our role in IT Procurement, but also a chance to network with our peers. That network has proved to be invaluable for advice, sharing experiences, etc. Being a member of Caucus also gives me access to learn from and share with my peers throughout the year, extending the ITPS experience.

    ITPS has been a special experience for me over the years as I have attended over 20 of these exceptional events. Intensely informative and providing the latest and greatest best practices in all areas of IT Procurement. This is the latest in IT Procurement thought leadership and practical application of proven tactics and strategy. But, of even greater benefit is the networking with peers and development of a lifelong network of IT procurement professionals I call my friends and who I can use to discuss new ideas, strategies and learn about vendor tactics and tricks. A great value and amazing event.

    The CAUCUS IT Procurement Summit (ITPS) is a gathering of top minds in the acquisition of today’s technologies. The information received is 100% applicable to every company that uses technology, no matter how small or large. From the key note speeches, breakout sessions, and one-on-one discussions – the value far exceeds the entry fee. Professional friendships of mutual respect and support are the lasting result that keep folks coming back year after year. Simply put, the ITPS levels the playing field for corporate buying organizations all around the world.
