It’s no secret that senior managers and C-level executives are constantly wading through the latest buzzwords and jargon as they try to determine the best strategies for their business. Disruption, digital transformation, robots are taking our jobs, AI, AIOps, DevSecOps… all of the “next big thing” headlines, terms, clickbait articles, and sensationalism paint a distorted picture of what the business technology landscape really is.
Understand the reality amongst the virtuality, and make sense of what technology will drive the next wave of business innovation.
Join Tim Dillon, founder of Tech Research Asia (TRA), for a presentation that blends technology market research trends with examples from Australian businesses already deploying solutions in areas such as cloud computing, intelligent analytics, robotics, artificial intelligence, and “the realities” (mixed, virtual, and augmented). Tim will examine when these innovation technologies will genuinely transform Australian industry sectors as well as the adoption and deployment plans of your peers. Not just a theoretical view, the presentation will provide practical tips and learnings drawn from real-life use cases.
Hosted by JDS Australia and Splunk, this is an event not to be missed by any executive who wants an industry insider view of what’s happening in technology in 2018, and where we’re headed in the future.
