CORE CONCEPTS


Fujifilm is pleased to welcome our valued customers from around the world to attend our 11th Annual Global IT Executive Summit. Join us for a three day educational conference featuring presentations from industry experts, analysts, vendors and end users about the latest trends and best practices in storage. Speaker panels, Q & A sessions and peer-to-peer networking make this a unique “must attend” storage industry event.
