What’s New

Vertex continually innovates our products—and our annual conference. Each year, we introduce new and different approaches to deliver even more value to attendees.

This year, we are expanding the number of sessions for IT professionals. We’re also introducing a Cloud Special Interest Group designed to provide a forum for product and integration education and an exchange of knowledge and experiences. In addition, there will be sessions to address the latest trends in technology, including blockchain and robotics, and how these leading-edge ideas may change the role of the tax professional.

Cloud Special Interest Group (SIG)

With over 600 Vertex Cloud customers, there is a wealth of experience and insight that can be leveraged across the customer community. Join your peers for this discussion of current issues faced by tax professionals when leveraging a cloud solution and learn about opportunities to give input to the Vertex Cloud roadmap.


Sessions Added for IT Professionals

We’ve added new sessions for IT professionals where users and developers can share ideas about how to improve current processes, evolve tax automation and better manage and leverage tax data. From automated deployments to regression testing, these new sessions offer an opportunity to share challenges and explore compelling strategies and solutions:

IT600: Securing O Series Deployments in the Cloud

IT700: Deployment Options with Vertex O Series Including O Series LITE

TP900: Vertex REST APIs: Frictionless Portals and APIs

IT800: Vertex O Series On-Demand Architecture including Hybrid Deployments and RTE

IT500R: Strategies for Vertex O Series Regression Testing

Make a Difference While You Network

Vertex is dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live and work. This year, we successfully launched a new tradition designed to elevate our philanthropic work and community engagement to a higher level with our inaugural Global Day of Service where our employees around the world engaged with their local communities through a wide range of volunteer endeavors. And now we are excited to connect with our customers and partners in this important work as we take our spirit of giving on the road by offering a networking event that supports the community where Exchange is taking place! Check out the details on how you can be a part of the corporate caring community while at Exchange by participating in the Military Care Package Networking Event on Monday night. Have fun with other attendees while making a difference in the lives of those who serve our country.

Need a little boost to deal with the altitude? Check out the Oxygen Bar sponsored by BDO. It’s a great way to get a bit more oxygen in the high altitude while restoring energy and concentration. Recuperate after a long day of sessions by visiting the Oxygen Bar located in the Resource Center.
