Tech 360, October edition: eBiz Recap, IDEA Connector News, and more

Welcome back to Tech 360! We had a lot of fun at eBiz, and we can’t wait to share the highlights with you.


eBiz has come and gone, and a good time was had by all.

We had two engaging general sessions including our keynote speaker Greg Hawks (pictured above) who focused on why the “ownership” mindset can be derailed in the workplace.

eBiz featured multiple informative breakout sessions about the new versions of IDEA Exchange, the IDW, and the changes coming to eBusiness standards in the coming year.

Missed out? Don’t worry–you can still view the presentations in our app, called “IDEA eBiz 2018,” which you can download Google Play or in the iTunes Apple Store.
