Keynote Presentation: "Voice of the Customer: How IT can Participate - and make an Impact!"

Successful businesses pay close attention to their customers – makes sense, since these are the folks that are buying your products and services. And in traditional organizations, IT is a back-office functions that does not take part in these important conversations.

But in companies going through Digital Transformation, teams that work with Information and Technology have a much greater change to participate in those connections – and will very probably be on the team that reacts to and delivers on the ideas that are generated.

Should IT play a key role as part of the customer relationship? This presentation will provide some context for the idea – with real-world examples and stories of what works.

Keynote Presentation: "Building an Intelligent and Nimble Enterprise"

Faced with an increasingly competitive and volatile business landscape, enterprises are constantly challenged to adapt to changing directions in an intelligent, cost efficient, yet nimble manner. What are the characteristics that make define an intelligent enterprise ? What are the traits of such an enterprise that not only overcome these challenges but also dominate the market place? Can Information Technology (IT) be a lynchpin in achieving these capabilities for an enterprise ? How can an enterprise re-invent themselves as an intelligent enterprise, building on their core assets/strengths? What are the magic recipes and catalysts of change that bring about this transformation? Is it a combination of people, process, technology, culture, necessity and more? Would this level of transformation require eliminating the traditional boundaries between IT and the business ? The keynote explores  these compelling questions to tease out relevant insights.
