EMPOWERING BEYOND SYMPOSIUM 2018 LONDON
Driving Digital Transformation Through Automation, AI, and Blockchain
We are living in a new age of innovation created by the limitless applications of digital technologies, and while everyone touts the value of automation, AI, IoT and blockchain, the real value of these transformative technologies is only realized through a holistic approach which focuses on driving business outcomes through a process of digital transformation. Organizations are tired of hearing how service providers can address their needs through point solutions. What they need is a trusted partner who can help them traverse this digital journey by seamlessly weaving a tapestry of innovative solutions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Empowering Beyond Symposium is designed to inspire and stimulate peer-based dialogue between executives from enterprise organisations who are looking to co-create business value with their technology partners. This event begins at 2:30PM and runs until 5:30PM followed by a networking drinks reception and a tour of the Chelsea Stadium until 7:30PM.
