Why you should attend the 2017 Gartner Symposium/ITxpo

All industries - banking, healthcare, government, energy, education, energy, retail and everything else – are undergoing a transformation as connected technologies impact established structures, business practices and customer expectation. Thousands of senior IT industry execs will be heading to Barcelona this week to gain an insight into how to leverage these technologies for competitor advantage.

The Gartner Symposium/ITxpo (5-9 November), attended by over 6000 IT professionals and 150 Gartner analysts, is the flagship EMEA IT community event for any business leader seeking the clearest possible vision to help guide their businesses through the fast-changing digital future and to carve out a reputation for digital leadership.

What will you learn?

Digital transformation is impacting every part of human existence, posing fundamental challenges to existing organizational structures.

Executives and business leaders must develop the digital dexterity to understand and manage technology impacts. Network effect technologies compound such impacts, as AI, connected devices, Industry 4.0 developments, data analytics and more combine for an impact greater than the whole across every element of the business. It’s important to manage all the data created by digital processes.

It’s also a challenge figuring out how to effectively combine existing tech infrastructure with new technology investment. Successful integration of both may sometimes make the difference between success and failure as you navigate your future-focused digital deployments. But, what’s the best practise advice to help achieve this? Where can you find it?

To help you answer such questions effectively, Gartner Symposium/ITExpo will host over a hundred Gartner experts and analysts and thought leaders from across cutting-edge enterprises who want to guide you and your business as you navigate these fundamental digital transformation challenges. If you care about your business, your industry, or the future, you need to be there.
