Techweek Concept Series presented by NAVTEQ
Join us for the launch of the Techweek.com media website and the new NAVTEQ.com website at the first Techweek Concept Series presented by NAVTEQ.We'll also be kicking off 2012 Techweek Conference & Expo, highlight a panel talk on the Agile Enterprise, and showcase 3 startups seeking feedback on their ideas and concepts.
Concept: The Agile Enterprise and the Information Society
The information society represents a point of inflection in the way we live and work. Creativity becomes the new competitive edge. The agile enterprise converts creative work -- knowledge, ideas, experience, skills, business processes -- into "content" as the new dominant asset class.
Techweek has invited leaders in business and innovation to discuss how enterprise can stay cutting-edge and competitive by connecting to the startup culture. How can established companies purchase and integrate innovative low-cost web applications or hire entrepreneurial thinkers into their business? What are strategies and best practices for making an enterprise 'prototype' or 'pivot' in its product development? How can startups connect to enterprise?
Follow-up will include Geoff Domoracki, CEO of Techweek, introducing the Techweek Conference & Expo 2012 as well as the major theme behind the festival -- The Information Society. Market research, financial analysis, global problem-solving are information problems. More and more corporations are changing from producing commodities to solving information issues. Consumers are demanding more digital information in their daily lives. How can a company 'win' in an information economy? What new types of businesses will appear to solve information problems? How will Techweek spotlight the implications of the Information Society?
