This Boardroom will examine the technology revolution and how we are implementing the opportunities available to us.
Is every business now a technology business?
With technologies like big data, artificial intelligence, cloud and mobile disrupting the marketplace, enterprises are facing a substantial threat from startups and modern IT solutions. For instance, Blockchain has created a threat to the entire centralized banking system. Chatbots will automate the work of consumer helpdesk. It has been said Alexia will become the first port of call for basic legal advice. Use of sensor technologies in homes has enabled enhanced security thus, posing a threat to the traditional security devices (as well as their manufacturers) and there are many more similar examples. The rate of change is accelerating. It took 75 years for 100 million people to get access to the telephone; the gaming app “Pokemon Go” hooked that many users in less than one month in 2016. Technology, and specifically digital technology, is so intertwined with many businesses, as well as our social and economic lives, that trying to separate ‘tech’ from ‘non-tech’ is becoming increasingly redundant.
Nigel church, First Solution will provide some insights into what they are seeing and how a company can implement a digital strategy. Stephen Williams, Perfect Storm will provide an overview of what leading edge businesses are doing around the conversation with the customer, how they are building loyalty and new business opportunities and smashing their competitors.
