From a business perspective, digital transformation is now a necessity and key to increasing competitiveness and helping you understand your customers and the experiences they want. From a technical viewpoint, the challenge begins with scrutinizing an endless array of cleverly marketed cloud, AI, Machine Learning, Analytics, and IoT technologies and determining which options are the right fit in order to sustainably achieve the objectives of the business while staying within budget.

Sogeti understands the difficult transformative choices you face and that every digital transformation includes a variety of complexities and challenges. With the help of Microsoft and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), we have developed this special event to help you and your organization overcome some of your digital transformation blockers and understand how current technologies can support your objectives from both a business and technical perspective.

Each session is presented by, who we consider to be digital transformation thought leaders. These are not your typical, high level conference speakers, but individuals with actual, hands on experience in researching, developing and implementing digital transformation solutions as well as strategies.

We have planned an exciting 1.5 day agenda that brings together multiple levels of digital transformation expertise:

  • In a contribution by Forrester Research, we set the strategic horizon for digital transformation: what are the big trends and where can we expect to go in the coming years. Essential considerations for anyone creating their Business-IT strategy.
  • Additionally, Microsoft, HPE and Intel will discuss some key technologies and product road maps that support your business models and digital transformation strategies.
  • Sogeti will discuss some of the best lessons learned through our experience with developing and deploying digital transformations solutions worldwide.  
  • Finally, we have invited multiple organizations who have recently implemented digital strategies to share how they overcame barriers, such as security, culture, legacy applications and testing and to discuss how digital transformation has impacted their business.  

Please join us for an inspiring and valuable event that will help you accelerate your digital objectives.
