When confronted by transformative disruptive technology such as Cloud, how can senior business and IT executives identify opportunities to leverage technology to create new business value? As part of Saugatuck Technology's ongoing "Executive Insights" research program, we recently talked with John Schloff, VP Global Strategy at Pitney Bowes about how an industry leader such as Pitney Bowes embraces disruptive technology to create, innovate, and extend a major business brand in the Cloud.
I attended Saugatuck Technology's inaugural Cloud Business Summit in NYC. An invitation-only event, the summit brought together 125 senior business and technology executives. The summit focused uniquely on Cloud Business and highlighted how cloud is not just an enabler for improving the agility and cost efficiencies of existing business but also how it can be a great strategic weapon to create innovative business opportunities in the future.
Mobile technology is redefining business computing for best-in-class enterprises, igniting short-term returns with an eye towards long-term competitive differentiation.
New forces in mobile computing are coming together in a perfect storm, causing companies to think about their businesses in an entirely new paradigm. What is the impact on the software industry? These trends and other influencing factors have created a "Mobile Big Bang" in business culture and flipped the old IT model on its head.
