Enterconf: Top names in software at Belfast conference

Movers and shakers from the world of enterprise software are gathering in Belfast's Titanic Quarter today for industry expo, EnterConf.

The event is a sister conference of MoneyConf, which took place in Belfast earlier this week, attracting over 1,200 people on each day of the event.

Both events are spin-offs of the hugely successful Web Summit, which takes place in Dublin every year.

EnterConf, which takes place today and tomorrow, will negotiate the rapidly changing landscape of enterprise technology, covering some of the solutions coming to market from both established players and innovative startups.

One of the first big names to kick off the two-day event at T13 is Mikkel Svane, chief executive and founder of Zendesk, which provides software to improve customer service.

Mr Svane started the company with two friends in Copenhagen in 2007. Zendesk now has offices in 10 countries, employs more than 800 staff and has 57,000 paid customer accounts worldwide.

Patrick Grady, CEO of Deem, named by Fast Company as one of the top 50 people in the world to change the way we live and work, will also feature today.

Deem is a major commerce-as-a-service (CaaS) company, enabling businesses to save, sell and syndicate via its network.

Gary Davis from Intel Security will lead a talk on the main stage about privacy and security in the era of big data and the Internet of Things.

Graham Cooke from Qubit will also discuss the development of the company, which specialises in web personalisation, audience segmentation and digital analytics for cloud computing.
