The I.T. place to be..

Raising awareness of the effective use of IT within the Humber and North Yorkshire

The recent strategic partnership between the NTI and locally based it interface, a leading provider of IT training and consultancy has seen the development of a series of events that will promote the use of technology, be informative and develop knowledge of IT and a sense of community amongst businesses.

The role of the NTI is to encourage and facilitate the effective use of Technology across Humber and North Yorkshire with the purpose of economic growth and prosperity.

To develop this agenda the NTI has always held the belief that it would not deliver directly and compete with other established initiatives. The strategic partnership between it interface and the NTI seemed appropriate and gave the opportunity to collaborate and utilise each others expertise to deliver something of value to the business community in line with the NTI's agenda.

Funding from the Digital Skills Brokerage within the NTI has enabled it interface to deliver a range of events to raise the profile of IT in the region.

Current events are:

IT Manager and IT Trainer updates

The aim of these update sessions is to provide an opportunity for attendees to network with people in similar roles within the region, discuss experiences or current issues, look at specific technologies and to find out what's happening within the industry.

Information Technology Business Briefings

These half day monthly briefings on specific topics relating to the demands within the industry have been designed to give an insight into current technological advances that can be real drivers for business performance. Topics will incorporate existing IT solutions as well as breaking wave technologies.

Throughout the briefings leading experts will highlight the business cases for key technologies; will provide demonstrations and will offer a facilitated forum environment to discuss the adoption of such technologies within businesses with representatives from local companies.
