7th Annual Digital Business Summit
June 14-15, 2017
Millennium Mayfair Hotel
44 Grosvenor Square
Successful companies are leveraging disruptive digital technologies to transform their operating models and reap significant competitive advantage. Emerging technologies are revolutionizing whole industries, unleashing new value chains and realizing new customer opportunities. Are you taking advantage of them?
Join ISG’s Digital Business Summit as we explore what's next and what's beyond next.
This year's agenda will explore five main themes:
Driving the Digital TransformationToday, the majority of the IT budget is spent maintaining yesterday’s legacy investments rather than driving forward tomorrow’s digital business future. By the end of 2017, businesses will need to think of Digital Business not as something separate but as a broader vision for the entire enterprise. This will require a complete re-design of the enterprise IT operating model. Enterprises will extract business value through their digital fabric, by connecting with customers, suppliers, partners and employees in a whole new way.
Security and IoTSensor-connected legacy systems will provide data in ways and frequencies previously untapped, improving the business value of existing infrastructure. However, current authentication and access control decisions are one-to-one, made between people and machines or between client and server machines. The IoT brings many-to-many and machine-to-machine (M2M) requests that challenge current authentication and access methods and will pose new security challenges. What is the foundation for a secure environment in the new digital universe? What do you need to do to build it?
IT Skills Gap
Business and IT leaders alike face a skills shortage that threatens their enterprises’ ability to develop and grow digital business initiatives. The shortfall will continue through 2017, particularly among skills related to IT security, cloud and data analytics and management. We will examine advanced methods of staff augmentation to offset these shortages, including outsourcing, improved skills training and greater deployment of digital labour through 2017.
Automation and Digital Workforce
Digital labour will have a profound impact on enterprises over the next several years. Entire operating models – including people, process, technology, governance and culture – will be reshaped as the work carried out by employees is increasingly augmented by software-based virtual agents. We’ll examine how some organisations are using an Agile approach – including sprints, backlogs and story points – and are introducing digital labour to realize better outcomes. And we’ll explore how digital labour – including software capabilities beyond robots – is unlocking the possibilities of digital business.
Emerging Technology and Digital Disruptors
The promise of increased capacity, reduced cost and errors and repatriation of offshore work is creating significant market demand for RPA software and services.
