Organizations must innovate and find new ways to collaborate if they are to be successful in the world dominated by big challenges: 

  1. Managing information overload and using the right data to make decisions, 

  2. Employees accessing company data using multiple devices from outside the firewall, 

  3. Consumerization of IT introducing disruptive technologies,

  4. and employee dissatisfaction with fewer than 20% of today’s employees feeling engaged in their jobs. 

This session will focus on how real organizations are solving real problems. We’ll show how enterprises can use the 4 disruptive trends to establish market leadership and competitive advantage. Come and learn about today’s solutions and a roadmap for the future.
