The CTRM Conference is a unique 1-day event that is focused on the $1.6billion CTRM software category was held on the 5th October at the RAI Amtrium, Amsterdam in conjunction with Synergy’s EMART. The conference brought together end user, service practitioners, and vendors to spend a day focused on some of the key issues and trends impacting the software category. Hosted and facilitated by ComTech Advisory, the leading analysts in the CTRM software space, the CTRM Conference brought a compelling agenda of presentations, knowledge sharing and roundtable discussions involving key users of CTRM and associated software and services in the industry all supplemented by excellent networking opportunities.
 
Agiboo also sponsored the event as we find it important to contribute to this binding factor in the CTRM industry. This year the theme was about disruptive technologies and presentations or discussions were centered about this subject. Agiboo also participated in the roundtable discussion through a panel about: CTRM in the ‘True’ Cloud.
 
The CTRM Conference touched many important subjects such as blockchain, Cloud CTRM, open source and micro services. Shaping also directions for CTRM development which are very important for Agiblocks CTRM.
 
Agiboo likes to thank Garey Vasey and Patrick Reames for the excellent organization and taking these initiatives which are essential for CTRM evolution.
