Pulse Check is an interim virtual market update for partners across Australia and New Zealand, designed to deliver bite-sized guidance in relation to revised customer investment priorities, third-party outsourcing plans and ongoing local M&A trends.
Set for Thursday 25 November, this session will provide need-to-know market information before the year end, housing independent and objective industry analysts, supported by editorial-led insights and research.
“Following a challenging and distracting 12 months, Pulse Check will support the ecosystem with mission-critical market intelligence -- short, sharp and strategic,” said Cherry Yumul, vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Innovation at IDG.
“While priorities have naturally varied in recent months, the industry has been deprived of headspace to assess and evaluate -- whether evolving end-user demands, revised outsourcing requirements or the impact of accelerated M&A locally. Pulse Check offers that moment to pause, prioritise and press ahead.”
In a departure from long-winded virtual conferences, Pulse Check is short, sharp and strategic by design with partners actively encouraged to cherry-pick relevant content based on preference and availability.
Collectively, the aim is to offer essential information to support pre-2022 planning, aligned to the belief that despite such evident economic and societal distractions, partner progress must continue at pace.
