NEW YORK, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NS1, the leader in smart network control solutions, today announced event details for INS1GHTS2022: Outsmart Complexity. For the third consecutive year, NS1’s INS1GHTS will serve as a digital forum for industry experts, business leaders, and technology visionaries to come together and share their thoughts on the growing complexity of our digital world.

“Users demand flawless interactions across an expanding array of devices and services, but the network infrastructures that underpin those interactions are mostly dumb and brittle,” said Kris Beevers, co-founder and CEO, NS1. ”INS1GHTS2022 will empower attendees with knowledge and skills necessary to outsmart the challenges of increasingly complex networks and supercharge their impact.”

INS1GHTS2022 will serve as a digital forum for collaboration and information sharing among IT leaders. Participants can choose from two virtual tracks: Technical INTENS1VE and SENS1BLE Leadership. Both tracks include presentations by industry experts and NS1 customers, such as Salesforce, USA Today, Wix, and GlobalSign.

Keynote and featured speakers include:

Lisa Bodell, founder and CEO, futurethink, is a highly regarded thought leader focused on innovation, simplification, and change, as well as the bestselling author of books like Why Simple Wins. Her presentation, Killing Complexity, will teach attendees techniques for eradicating complexity and prioritizing meaningful work that drives innovative change.

Jim Caroll, global futurist, business trends, leadership and innovation expert, is a popular speaker skilled in identifying paths to innovation that align with new disruptive realities. His presentation, Bridging the Acceleration Gap: The Impact of the Pandemic on Digital Transformation, will explore the gap between how fast the world is changing and how quickly companies can keep up, as well as how to turn this gap into an opportunity instead of a threat.

Kris Beevers, co-founder and CEO, NS1, is a recognized authority on DNS, global application delivery, distributed cloud architectures, and edge computing.
