Venue Villa Kennedy
We all know the stat about digital disruption: the world’s largest taxi firm, Uber, owns no cars. The world’s most popular media company, Facebook, creates no content. These are the organisations that are setting the digital agenda: recent research from Dell EMC suggests 78% of executives believe digital start-ups pose a threat to their business, with around half admitting they don’t know what their industry will look like in three years’ time.
And yet digital transformation is a massive opportunity for every business, if your foundations are in place. 73% of companies agree that a centralised technology strategy needs to be a priority and 66% are planning to invest in IT infrastructure and digital skills leadership. Modern data centres can lower costs and optimise cloud. Hybrid cloud and converged infrastructure is the future of enterprise IT. But what is your roadmap to implementation?
Join MeetTheBoss TV as we team up with Dell EMC for an evening of lively discussion around the topic of digital transformation. Keynote speaker Mark Sear will set the scene for an evening of valuable, insightful peer-to-peer conversation over three courses: ask questions, share knowledge, prepare to be challenged. Digital transformation is happening. Is your IT ready to support it?
