This year was AIS Network’s first chance to attend COVITS and that is just what we did. COVITS, the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Innovative Technology Symposium, is a chance for decision-makers from state and local government, business, and education to discuss solutions for Virginia’s technology needs. The one comment I heard over and over was the quality of the keynotes and how relevant the topics in the panels were to the problems that were being solved.
For AIS Network specifically, it was such a great opportunity to meet with so many people in our extended community. We met with many state and local people who were focused on a variety of issues. We also saw a lot of interest around the Cloud (especially Private Cloud) and Bring Your Own Device.
We definitely plan to attend next year.
