Limited Capacity seats available

The digital enterprise is not a fairy tale. Digital experiences - web, social and mobile - that empower employees and delight customers are as real as you can make them. But you likely will hear stories about how the digital enterprise will more or less build itself, how it can be simple and easy and risk free, or how you will have time to sort it all out. But digital transformation is no magic trick. It’s real work that requires real expertise. Digital is complex, the stakes high, and the opportunities too great to ignore—and it’s your job to turn it into reality. You will have to build the experiences that change the way your company interacts with customers and partners. The business will not transform itself. You have to do it, and time may be running out.

You know that becoming a digital business is urgent. But, heads-down over journey maps and capability audits, many firms still miss the big picture: Polishing up your existing digital channels and plans won't be enough to battle against digital disruptors and competitors. You must master both digital customer experience and operational excellence. Most firms can't do this alone. They'll have to connect digital resources inside and outside of the company and leverage networks of partners to compete. Join Dane Anderson as he shares Forrester's insights to digital business transformation and set the path for your journey to digital mastery.
- How far along are firms in their mastery of digital customer experience and operations?
- What role do digital ecosystems play in your digital business transformation?
- How are innovative companies leveraging internal and external partners to bring new value to customers?

Limited Capacity seats available

We’ve thrived on new innovations and disruptions for the last five decades, from mainframes to Client/Servers to ERP to web-based architectures to cloud computing. The only difference, today, is the pace of change and innovation is considerably more aggressive – digital technologies such as mobility, analytics and social are generating new business value when legacy business processes are dragged into a digital business environment, while new developments in robotic automation platforms are making it much easier to create fluid workflows for operations to become more efficient. On top of that, add the possibilities of artificial intelligence, cognitive applications and advanced data science, and you have a maelstrom of immense change and new complexity challenging the status quo of corporate systems and processes. Looking at this next evolution of value, it is coming from technology-driven “As-a-Service” advances that directly enhance employee, partner and consumer effectiveness.

This emergence of As-a-Service represents the most disruptive series of impacts to the traditional services industry that we have seen – and those legacy service providers and enterprises still thinking this is a passing fad… it may already be too late.

HfS Research's President and CEO, Phil Fersht, will discuss how the emerging As-a-Service Economy is changing how we run our businesses and our professional lives – and how India's ambitious services providers can get ahead to be effective “Brokers of Capability” in the new order of business.

Session VIII A: Enterprise of the Future: Are the Providers ready?
The session's objective is to discuss the disruptive impact of global forces on enterprises world-wide and therefore, paint a picture of the enterprise of 2025 and the resulting industry landscape. We expect to see a half-new world, with industry value chains disintermediated, 30-40% of revenue pools captured by enterprises that barely exist today, the rise of prosumers, machines joining the workforce in strength replacing upwards of ~50 million workers, 80-90% transactions executed on digital channels and CEOs seized of this new agenda. This transformation will, no doubt, affect different industries differently, but we also expect to see a spectrum of enterprises with 70-75% of them still retaining a legacy core. This new age digital enterprise of 2025, as affected by advanced interfaces, ubiquitous connectivity, next gen computing and analytics will definitely have optimized opex and generated new revenue streams, but also have capex structures transformed.
The Enterprises of the future, thus, create sharp implications for Providers as we know them today. As lines blur between traditional definitions of service lines (e.g., engineering and IT), Partners of the Future will have to straddle multiple spaces, all at once. With new business models, new players are poised to capture significant market share. The big will highly likely get bigger, but in order to create and capture value at similar scale, players of today will have to adopt transformative plays. We believe the next 10 years will be defining for the competitive landscape of the Digital Partners of the Future.
