Thinking Through Your Technology Next Moves

using technology to win in today’s competitive & disruptive marketplace

Digital transformation.  Investment in technology.  It’s not an if, it’s a when.  We all know and understand that the future is digital and that technology is going to continue to play a larger role in our distribution businesses. But, with the myriad of potential technologies available – where do you start?  Where does your digital journey begin?  

This conversation will look at technology from a macro perspective, drill down to those that have the opportunity to create significant value for your enterprise in the short term – with a long term view, and leave you with specific steps you can take to take your next step in using technology to win in today’s competitive and disruptive marketplace.

Our panelists Will Explore The Following Questions:

  • In 10 years from now, looking back, what technology will have had the biggest impact on distribution? Why? What are you doing today to act on your vision?
  • How do you think about competing with marketplaces?
  • How will people and technology partner together in the future? How are you preparing for these changes?
