Innovation Sandbox invites you to learn from some of the brightest stars in technology. We'll talk about everything from big data, application modernization, AI and machine learning  to intelligent automation, test automation and more. Make Thursdays your time to play. This Innovation Sandbox  is open for everyone!

What's in a Name?

When that name is "Innovation Sandbox," it can say a lot. And we hope it does.

Innovation is a major factor for any company or individual aiming for success. It challenges imaginations, opens doors you may never knew existed, creates comradery and can, very possible, change the world. 

A sandbox is a place to experiment, play and have fun. Kids in a sandbox create new cities, build castles, sculpt grainy works of art - imagine as adults what we can do. In our Innovation Sandbox, the industry’s brightest will discuss what’s new and next in a relaxed, interactive format. So, come on in. No pail or shovel needed.
