DALLAS: Windows 10 Workshop & Texas Rangers Game

June 07, 2017

1E and Sparkhound partner to present a unique experience at Texas Rangers Globe Life Park.

Most migrations are approached as arduous and lengthy projects that put a strain on resources, strangle bandwidth and affect user productivity. It doesn’t have to be that way. Your migration can be simplified – you just need to automate it. Implementing an On-Demand Windows strategy can provide several benefits:

  • Reduced infrastructure and in-turn reduced cost and time to completion
  • Zero-impact, seamless experience for end-users
  • Leveraged application rationalization so only needed applications are migrated

NOLA: Wells Fargo + Sparkhound Executive Panel Discussion

May 03, 2017

This event is by invitation only: As finance and IT executives, you are trusted to provide visibility into crucial information required for accurate decision making within your company. 

Compiling massive data sets into humanly consumable information, providing greater financial controls, and automating tactical functions to free up bandwidth for strategic initiatives can be overwhelming. However, technology is evolving to help you support these critical functions. The question then becomes, “How do you take advantage of what today’s technology has to offer?”

Executive panel discussion with leadership from Wells Fargo and Sparkhound on May 3rd at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans at 11:30 - 1:00PM. (Complimentary valet parking is available)
