What is holding your digital initiatives back?

Don’t build your house on sand: can digital infrastructure enable a better tomorrow?

November 26, 2019 10:00 am GMT

Business is being profoundly transformed. If you think you’ve seen it before, we’d argue different. The pace of change and depth of disruption is new. Digitisation is new.

This year, enterprises are expected to invest $1.3 trillion in digital initiatives. Yet, according to Forbes Technology Council: “research tells us that 70% of these initiatives will not reach their stated goals … over $900 billion worth of spend will miss the mark.”

Why? IT complexity plays a role – how do you drive innovation with so many systems to maintain? How do stay secure with so many systems to patch? – but is not the main reason.

* What is holding digital initiatives back?
* What are your most important initiatives, and how can you ensure successful delivery?
* Are the foundational elements of your digital infrastructure in place?

The digital transformation of your business is happening. The question is how? How can you do it all seamlessly and whilst reducing complexity at every stage? Are there proven steps to success and simplicity? And how are your peers organising to compete in this changed world?

Join five other senior IT executives and thought leaders for this roundtable discussion as we explore the very modern thinking and technologies underpinning modern business – whether you’re enhancing collaboration between teams, implementing end-to-end connectivity across your enterprise, or expanding seamlessly into new territories.
