Session Title: The Rise of the Cloud-Forward Company— Changing the Face of Modern Business

Any company can turn itself into a “cloud-first” operation— an organization that selects progressive, cloud-based applications and processes over on-site legacy solutions, to run their businesses more efficiently. But the greatest value will go to “cloud-forward” companies, those that adopt the cloud intelligently, from a user’s perspective, rather than from the more restrictive, top-down approach that many companies use instinctively. Join Bitium’s CEO and co-founder Scott Kriz at the company’s stunning West Haddon Hall designed headquarters located on Santa Monica’s beautiful Main Street. Check out this former studio of artist Richard Diebenkorn, and hear from Scott on the concept and benefits of being cloud-forward, as well as 5 ways to secure your cloud apps.

Everyone knows about the great California Gold Rush. NextRX is a pioneer in its next incarnation - The Green Rush, so named because of the incredible opportunities created by the legalization of medical marijuana. A rapidly growing industry is emerging out of the shadows.

This session will explore the many challenges NextRX faced in it’s quest to create the best possible patient experience through the use of cutting edge technology in the form of its RX-Pass, which allows patients to register securely and easily and then provides one-scan access at subscribing dispensaries. Members are automatically enrolled in the RX-Point system, the industry’s first and only industry-wide rewards system in which they can earn and redeem points when they order their meds - for pickup or delivery.

Attendees will gain considerable insight into the legalized marijuana industry and those who have a valid recommendation and ID can get a free VeriPass (because one shouldn't leave the dispensary without it).

Special Message to Attendees from Host Company:

Attendee parking for the event will be either street parking or valet. For street parking, there's a good mix of free and metered parking on Nebraska Ave and Centinela Ave. Luckily for you, the scheduled time for our session begins shortly after street cleaning for that day ends, so we anticipate many open spaces. For those wanting to avoid the hunt for parking, our business park has a valet service in the back. Just drive back there and let the attendant know you need to be valeted. The parking rate is $2.00 each 20 minutes, capping at a maximum of $14.00. Please do not park in marked spaces. Thanks for your patience and understanding. We're looking very forward to meeting you!
