The Innovation of Enterprise: Accelerating the Adoption of Next  Generation  Technologies
-J Schwan, President & Founder of Solstice Mobile

For today's enterprise, innovation is crucial to building and sustaining competitive advantage. Customers and employees want sophisticated technologies to remove complexity from their lives and expose new capabilities they had never considered before. Customers are getting smarter, and large enterprises must be able to act smarter than its customers, or it will cease to exist. The answer to addressing these challenges and opportunities, is through enterprise innovation. But in many organizations that's easier said than done. Large organizations that have silo'd lines of business and supporting operational functions often cannot mobilize at the pace required to innovate. This presentation will highlight key opportunities for innovation and share strategies to accelerate the innovation process in the enterprise.
