Social collaboration, mobile technology, analytics and big data and cloud computing platforms are creating a huge wave of opportunity for businesses to deliver more compelling customer experiences. But investments in these areas have to be made strategically – as part of an intentional ‘Digital Enterprise shift’. A Digital Enterprise is an organisation which applies a ‘ digital first’ strategy to how it connects to its customers and markets; how it creates and delivers products and services; and how it manages its operations. This session will explain how Social, Mobile, Analytics and Big Data and Cloud are connected, and provide a framework to help architects and decision makers analyse the potential for these technologies in different business domains, and how operations and management systems need to be re-thought in order to make the most of the potential in play.
