The evolutionary - and increasingly revolutionary - shift to more technology dependent, data driven and digitally enabled businesses opens up both opportunities and challenges for new and established companies to transform their organizations, operations and their business models into ever more agile and dynamic 'Digital Enterprises'. Leading companies large and small, from every industry, and from around the world are increasingly leveraging new tools, new techniques and new approaches to unlock data, turn it into information, and innovate with those insights to improve upon or even transform traditional business models, differentiate themselves from less digitally agile competitors, and accelerate into new markets, products and services. These trends and some insights from real-world leaders are the catalysts for our next Idea Exchange.

Keynote panelist Vinnie Mirchandani – Author of the ‘Digital Enterprise’ and ‘The New Technology Elite’ - will lead off our session with unique insights and some examples of the innovative and transformational approaches being employed by some leading Digital Enterprises around the world. Then we mix it up with three exciting panelists who are at the front lines of disrupting and innovating across a diverse set of industries: Ken Venner - CIO of SpaceX, Dev Bhatia – CEO of SRCH2, and Vivienne Ming - Chief Scientist of Gild. This event will be hosted and interactively moderated by CDT Executive Director Tim Stanley, a longtime business and technology transformation CXO, in a unique program that will enable you to interact with your peers and our special guests before, during and after this dynamic Idea Exchange panel discussion.

Come join us and engage with an exceptional and exciting panel of visionaries, thought leaders and real-world practitioners as we explore the intersection of big data and analytics, innovation and transformation, and the insights and best practices from a diverse group of Digital Enterprises at home and abroad!
