About the 'Game Changer' Thought Leadership Series
For all of us focused on alliances these are exciting times. Silicon Valley is on fire and we are witnessing a paradigm shift once again. With unimaginable speed and scale, a global digital economy has taken hold and transformed the way we work, interact, and collaborate—and entire value chains are being transformed. The market is rewarding those companies that are able to bring innovation to the edge of the enterprise, and expose it in service channels in myriad forms, like SaaS and PaaS. As a result, both consumers and providers are being forced to a new market definition of products and services and go-to-market strategies. More importantly, it is leading us to game changing business models—which will decide the future winners.
For all of us focused on collaboration models these changes couldn't be more important—these models are dramatically changing also—whether we call them alliances, partners or ecosystems. We want to keep you on top of the changes that affect you professionally, because in this world it’s “be disruptive or be disrupted.” So we developed the thought leadership Game Changer Thought Leadership Series as part of our new set of program offerings.
This three-part series will be lead by recognized thought leaders and practitioners, from whom you will gain valuable insights into the worlds of service computing, new customer behavior, shifts in marketing and the marketers’ role, and the alignment of corporate strategy with the development of ecosystems.
