IDC CIO Summit 2016

Last year we brainstormed about how to embrace the digital forces that are reshaping industry and disrupting old models, including Internet of Things, Big Data, Cloud, Mobility, and who is best placed to wrestle with the Minotaur – the Chief Information Officer, Innovation Officer, or Digital Officer. Watch our 3 minute executive cut and get a glimpse.

We Make You Part of This Trend

Mobility, Big Data, cloud, and social technologies have changed every aspect of the way customers are interacting, relating to their brands, and expecting their digital and physical lives to interact seamlessly as one. The focus on customer experience has already started disrupting traditional business models, and, with the advent of the next IoT generation, this disruption will continue to impact retailers, manufacturers, banking, healthcare, and government services.
