Digital leaders have often misjudged technology adoption cycles due to early-stage hype and later-stage despondency. Techniques such as Social media, Mobile, Data Analytics and Cloud (MIT called SMAC) were widely promoted in the nineties but took a decade or more to come to fruition. Such is the case today with a new pipeline of techniques, such as AI, Immersive Technologies and Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (DAO), which could be even more disruptive to current business models and IT operations.

Cognizant and Google Cloud is sponsoring a series of discussion events in association with CIONET to explore how digital leaders can exploit this new pipeline. At the first event, we will discuss the following issues:

  • Should your organisation be an innovator or follower in technology adoption?
  • How can you scout and diffuse new techniques within your eco-system?
  • What business problems might you solve with new technologies?
  • How might digital leaders influence the board to accelerate innovation?

Cognizant and Google Cloud invite you to an evening event in London at 18.30 on the 18th of October. Roger Camrass, research director of CIONET and pioneer of today’s Internet will be your host. As with all CIONET events, we believe that this meeting of minds will help empower you in your digital leadership role.
