The buzz: “Connectivity is productivity” -Huffington Post 021215. While we as consumers spend more time on mobile devices than on traditional computing devices, the transformative power of mobile has not fully reached the workplace. Beyond getting email, alerts and chat on a phone, workers across industries around the globe cannot access mission-critical enterprise data, make decisions or take action from any location on the devices they love. Why not? Underlying business systems are not linked through a digital core to provide a seamless end user experience, resulting in wasted time and added complexity. The experts speak. Stuart Ravens, Navigant: “The key to success is failure…Success is made of 99 percent failure” -James Dyson. Catherine Lynch, SAP: “I’m late! I'm late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye!” -The White Rabbit. Holger Fritzinger, SAP: “The best companies will be the most mobile” -Tim Cook. Join us for Mobile: Enabling Digital Transformation.

The buzz: You look mah-velous, darling! Wake up call for the fashion industry! Forget about your forever-focus on seasonality, and pay very close attention to the digital age and the fashion consumer. Who? They’re tech-savvy, they’re social media-influenced, and they demand trend availability right now. Perhaps even more critical are the blurring lines among the traditional definitions of fashion retailer, manufacturer, and wholesaler. How will you survive? Either transform your business models and digital infrastructures, or be banished to the clearance rack. Not that! The experts speak. Jeff Goldberg, Accenture: “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept” -Ansel Adams. Matt Marcotte, M2 Collaborative: “The challenges of leadership are emotional and conversational, not rational and tactical” -Peter Koestenbaum. Matt Laukaitis, SAP: “Something good is just about to happen” -Pete Carroll. Join us for Digital Style: Reinventing the Fashion Business Model.

The buzz: “In an age of infinite digital documentation, paper was the last safe place for secrets.” (Evan Angler) The paper-making industry officially dates to 105 AD in China, although writing material was found in ancient Egypt.

It’s time for innovative business models and re-designed business processes. This is NOT your father’s paper business! The experts speak. Peter Reynolds. ARC Advisory Group: “The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking” (Albert Einstein). Didier Magnien, Sappi: “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower” (Steve Jobs).

The buzz: Shhh. Do you hear it? Your commercial moving assets are talking. What are they? Significant machines that move while doing something to create business value – a fleet of trucks, aircraft, fork lifts, floor sweepers. What are saying? Their data will teach you about opportunities, efficiencies, trust and loyalty, competitive advantages, risks, operational improvements – and lead to profound business cases and new business models across ecosystems. Everyone wins: manufacturers, fleet managers and above all the moving asset operator. The experts speak. Larry Stolle, SAP: “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted" (Albert Einstein). Bill Powell, ARI Fleet: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses" (Henry Ford).

The buzz: Well, now! The recent fall in commodity prices has hit upstream oil and gas companies the hardest, impacting their cash flow and ability to continue investing in high-risk projects. The result: a shift from volume to value as well operators focus on improving well efficiency instead of new drilling. Massive shifts in global demographics, wealth, and consumer engagement, fueled by technology adoption, will create new growth markets and reward agile companies that turn rising market complexity into opportunities. The experts speak. Valerie Jalufka, Accenture: “Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all” (Dale Carnegie). Chris Niven, IDC: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better” (Einstein). Stephane Lauzon, SAP: “If you are going through hell, keep going” (Churchill).
