Session III: Presentation: The Challenges and Opportunities of Digital Transformation

Statistically, IT departments spend roughly 80% of their budget on maintaining existing systems. With business executives still expecting agility and new solutions, IT must maximize the remaining 20%. Mid-market companies have the same digital transformation aspirations as large companies. Since they have smaller budgets and fewer resources to get it done, there is less room for error. Learn how emerging technologies are influencing where mid-market companies invest their IT dollars to fast-track their digital business.
