The world is becoming increasingly more connected, and increasingly everything is starting to become connected to everything else. It is becoming a true digital world.

Digital in business has produced a fundamental challenge, how we take all of this data, turn it into information and knowledge and through scenario planning, turning this knowledge into economic value.

Gartner predicts that 50% of the Fortune 500 will miss this transition and will cease to exist in their current state within the next five years.

Please join our presentation on the Digitisation of Business, by Matthew Smith, Global Head of Market Development for the Internet of Things at Cisco – where he will outline some of the macro challenges and some of the opportunities that can help steer your business along the road to a successful digital transition.
