Top service providers in the world of IT are constantly working to improve their offerings, and oftentimes, this means attending important industry events to gain new insights. One such conference is the annual Gartner Outsourcing & Strategic Partnership Summit, which presents influential people and organizations in the business and technology sector with an unmatched opportunity to get expert advice from peers and Gartner analysts on their current strategies, as well as learn more about other aspects of the dynamic field in which they work.

We interviewed one of the company's leaders, Rob Brown, to discuss what he's looking forward to about being involved with the summit and how he feels the experience will make RDX an even better service provider for its clients.
