The aim of this session will be to discuss, debate and explore the opportunities and challenges being faced as a result of digital transformation. To explore the disruption this is causing to business process, skills, commercial models & user experience, as organisations look to differentiate and innovate in pace with consumer demands.
This Disruptive Forces session will kick off with a provocation by Gerard Allison, senior vice president for EMEA at Juniper Networks, on how today’s CEO, CTO, CIO – in fact all and every boardroom role and beyond – should be thinking about the digital transformation of their business. It will consider what is possible today, tomorrow and beyond in terms of innovative thinking, planning and implementation. Gerard will propose that bringing together disparate elements of a business via intelligent technical infrastructure and innovative thinking to create a stronger unit can be done!
This opening gambit from Juniper will then be followed by three further provocations from other Big Innovation Centre partners in different sectors on how far digital technology has progressed their organisation to date, how far they think it can take them in the future, and whether digital transformation can really be a fundamental change agent for modern organizations.
The presentations will then be followed by a discussion with the audience chaired by Will Hutton on the implications for companies in every sector, in every industry, as they get to grips with the potential that technology offers – the Digital Transformation that is the focus of this Disruptive Forces session.
We will be inviting an audience of leaders from a wide range of organisations – specifically those responsible for elements of their organisation’s overall business strategy, rather than IT specialists – to consider and debate whether they should put IT at the heart of their business ethos, strategy and structure. Should use of digital technology be a fundamental commercial philosophy that must be embraced to shape the future? Register herefor the event.
