Event Overview

The drumbeat of business change is speeding up. Digital technology — social, mobile, analytics, cloud, and devices — disrupts business models and value streams, introduces new competitive threats, and comes with new demands from your customers and employees. Digital technology also changes the path your business must take to achieve outcomes. Business growth demands using information to build customer loyalty, predict new opportunities and possibilities, and deliver engaging experiences across channels and touchpoints. Business optimization rests on smarter business processes and application foundations to support future business change. On top of this, your business leaders need you to chart a path for embedding digital capability into future products and services. 


Your leaders demand new strategies, new architectures, new ecosystems, and new competencies. You now play a central role in defining new technology-fueled destinations to achieve business outcomes and thrive in the digital age.
