Early in November, First Line Software was in Barcelona for the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, an industry event that attracted an audience of over 5,000 attendees who are primarily CIOs and IT executives. Recognized for covering major trends, this year’s conference focused on how the Digital Wave is sweeping through nearly every industry.

Key topics included:

  • Digitalization
  • Internet of Things integration
  • Risk mitigation
  • CIO mission-critical priorities
  • Agile’s role in digitalization

First Line, named earlier this year as a Gartner Cool Vendor, greeted attendees at their booth on the Exhibition floor. CEO Nick Puntikov led a session where he introduced the Intellectual Integration approach and explained that it is a logical evolution from our custom software development experience and capabilities. He described how Intellectual Integration can add value to Digitalization – especially when paired with Agile, another area of expertise for First Line.

Nick went on to explain that Intellectual Integration involves tapping into First Line’s broad vertical industry experience, horizontal engineering expertise, and deep knowledge of the continuously evolving technology landscape to offer up opportunities for magnifying the reach and impact of a client’s business digitalization. He also shared how the Internet of Things often becomes a part of business digitalization as companies explore new product ideas and how they can optimize business processes.

Finally, Nick responded to numerous questions, including several about how First Line continues to acquire and maintain its wide range of industrial expertise.

Given what Gartner shared about digital trends at the conference, First Line is confident that our continuous evolution as a company equips us to add significant value as clients ride the wave of digitalization and emerge with innovative products and solutions for distinct competitive advantages.
