GREATER DES MOINES, IOWA — The Greater Des Moines Partnership has announced the next presenter in its monthly Top Five for Small Business series. Scott Meeker, Technology Consultant at BerganKDV, will present on the Top Five Things Small Businesses Should Know About IT. The Top Five series features presentations to inform, educate and inspire business owners in Greater Des Moines (DSM). The events focus on a variety of timely topics that affect business owners and managers including legal, human resources, information technology, marketing, accounting and other pressing issues.

The event takes place 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26 at the Greater Des Moines Partnership, 700 Locust St., Ste. 100.

Technology is crucial to the success of any business, underscoring the importance of having a thoughtful IT strategy. Small businesses must understand the answers to important questions before making sound business decisions. Should businesses utilize cloud-based systems? What is the impact of technical interruptions and downtime? How do companies enable a mobile workforce, and the growing amount of data? What about the changing landscape of cybersecurity threats? Meeker’s presentation will focus on simplifying the complexity of IT into a pragmatic approach to technology that makes sense for today’s small businesses.
