Topic: "The Digital Dozen: Executive Overview of 12 Emerging Technologies for Digital Transformation"

Companies are looking at the next generation of digital technologies as a way to get ahead. They’re changing their strategic plans and making investments–and you should be able to weigh in. In this session we'll cover at an executive level 12 technologies most relevant to current and future digital transformation efforts: big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, blockchain, internet of things, digital marketing, 3-D printing, drones, robots, virtual reality and augmented reality. For each of these technologies, we'll explain what they are, why they are important, and give illustrative examples.
