The independent community for disruptive business and technology leaders
An effective digital world is underpinned by a need to “just connect”. Remote and mobile working, industrial IoT, connected vehicles are just three macro trends that accelerate innovation at the edge. With advances in connectivity, such as 5G, the demands on IT leaders to enable ubiquitous connection for enterprise consumption will only accelerate. The shape of connectivity has to move away from the network and address the application in order to deliver the ubiquitous enablement essential to the digital enterprise, and unlock a new standard of user experience.
Join IT leaders to explore the future for ubiquitous connectivity, how to secure applications at the edge and the outlook for user experience in a distributed world.
