Leading the Digital Enterprise Transformation

July 25 - 27, 2016

Welcome to the new era of the digital enterprise featuring a new breed of IT leaders focused on delivering measurable results to business as they take advantage of transformative emerging technologies including cloud, software-defined everything, Internet of Things, DevOps, mobility, collaboration, and customer engagement. Success comes from not only selecting the optimal technologies, but also applying the appropriate metrics to measure the value to businesses. Technologists in this era must be able to articulate how these emerging technologies drive business value, including problems they solve, the staffing and process changes they drive, the customer experiences they enable, the operating costs they require, and the revenue they can deliver.

To be successful, technology professionals require not just technical savvy, but also business, financial, technical, and communications expertise. And they need the right metrics to guide staffing, spending, and partnerships, and to measure return on investment. Backed by Nemertes' groundbreaking research, this year's Navigator360 conference will explore the trends reshaping IT, and provide leaders with the guidance they need to prosper in their emerging role as business partners.

Key technologies and topics covered at this year's conference include:

  • Emerging technologies including cloud, DevOps, software-defined services, Internet of Things, mobility, unified communications, next-generation contact centers, and collaboration
  • Developing and using the right metrics to document IT-driven business improvements
  • Leveraging analytics to determine and increase IT value
  • Engaging employees, partners, and customers inside and outside of the organization
  • Effectively managing risk and leveraging security as a business enabler
  • Adopting automation and IT as a Service to shift IT into a more agile, strategic role
  • Adapting to new ways to work, the rise of the millennial workforce  and customer-centric engagement
  • Fostering a culture that drives ideation, information, and innovation
