Carl Rodrigues, Founder & CEO, SOTI

The pervasive power of mobile technology is reshaping industries and upending traditional business models. We are living in times where everything is being reinvented, everything is changing and the costs for building and supporting software solutions are rapidly increasing.

In order to survive, businesses need to deliver products that are not only differentiated, but products that can quickly and cost effectively be transformed to keep up with the times. In his keynote address, Mr. Rodrigues will discuss the need to rethink how software is designed, in order to deliver seamlessly integrated solutions that can withstand the ravages of rapidly changing market conditions. Mr. Rodrigues will explain how the SOTI ONE platform is well suited to this task, enabling businesses to dramatically reduce engineering and support costs, deliver products faster, and maximize return on investment.
