Information Technology is essential for business. The one big thing to remember is that it’s not rocket science, it’s not hard work, and it’s not complicated (especially for small and medium sized businesses).Delia’s philosophy regarding IT is KIS: Keep It Simple.

In this session Delia will cover four topics:

  1. software options
  2. cloud vs on-premises
  3. the tools of the trade
  4. IT policies

This will give you a good broad perspective on business and IT should help you work out the most important things you need to tick off, and should help you know the potential risks you need to address.

Presenter bio – Delia Gill

Managing Director, IT Engine

Delia left school at 15, worked, met her now husband and did some travel. While in Melbourne she trained in Quality Assurance, qualifying as an ISO auditor. Returning to Wellington in 1996 she worked for Capital Properties as their office manager. In 2000 the General Manager of Quay Corporate hired her to “help answer the phones”. By the end of that week she was off the reception desk and started taking over the office. By 2007 she was General Manager. In 2008 the opportunity came up to purchase the business, which she did with her husband David. In 2012 Quay Corporate rebranded to IT Engine to solidify the change of ownership and reflect the maturing business. 2014 saw IT Engine win two major awards from Microsoft, and they have followed that up again in 2017 adding an award for Cloud solutions. Delia has been to Toronto in the last year with Microsoft to their worldwide partner conference, and has started a group call the ITA which supports and mentors fellow IT firms around New Zealand.
