BOTH DAYS: Tuesday 26th June & Wednesday 27th June Hey Dude - Where’s My IT Gone?
Guest Speaker: Roy Illsley, Principal Analyst, Ovum
The future role of IT is not as simple as that proposed by Nicholas Carr in 2003: IT has become a commodity but will not remain this way for long. This daily keynote explores the technological and market forces that are coming together in a perfect storm to challenge our thinking about the role of IT within the enterprise. The term ‘business technology’ is increasingly being used to describe corporate IT, but few people understand the implications for the organisation of this movement. Roy Illsley from Ovum presents a unique view on what this means for business leaders and CIOs.
