Fireside Chat: Hyper-Convergence and the Path to Digital Singularity

We are truly in the midst of a Digital Revolution. Emerging technologies such as blockchain, internet of things, artificial intelligence & analytics, intelligent automation, cybersecurity and cloud are changing the way we work and live every day. However, the true multiplier effect occurs when two or more independent technologies merge seamlessly to create something entirely new and unique with an enhanced function that is greater than the original technologies could ever have by themselves. This hyperconvergence becomes a key pillar in changing our relationship with technology, from it simply being a means to an end (master/slave), to becoming completely ubiquitous – a point that is called Digital Singularity. Join this interactive fireside chat with two industry leaders to get a view into the journey towards Digital Singularity that lies ahead.
