Future of Digital Innovation - Agenda

The Future of Digital Innovation - Agenda program provides guidance to C-suite executives at IT buyer companies and to technology suppliers on digitally innovative products and services. The program is focused on advice for IT buyer companies on how to execute on the need to be digitally innovative in both their products and corporate systems, understanding what their competitors and peers are doing, and the benefits and potential returns from embracing digital transformation (DX) in their company. The focus for technology supplier companies is on how to embrace and support/encourage digital technology innovation by their clients by bringing more to them with software solutions, development and DevOps tooling, and SaaS and PaaS platforms as well as the ways to leverage other apps, development, and sourcing opportunities. Both foci will be on revenue-enhancing products/services and internal processes/operational practices for productivity.
