Spearheading Change: Measuring the Business Impact of Emerging Technologies

July 25 - 27, 2016

Welcome to the new era of IT on Demand–one featuring a new breed of IT leaders focused on delivering measurable results to the business.  Emerging technologies and paradigms, including cloud, software-defined everything, DevOps, mobility, collaboration, and customer engagement, can deliver unprecedented value to businesses---but only if they’re deployed and managed effectively. Technologists in this era must be able to articulate how these emerging technologies drive business value, including problems they solve, the staffing and process changes they drive, the customer experience they enable, the operating costs they require, and the revenue they can deliver.

Success requires the right skills and the right metrics. Technology professionals require not just technical savvy, but also business, financial, technical, and communications expertise. And they need the right metrics to guide staffing, spending, partnerships, and measure return on investment. Backed by Nemertes' groundbreaking research, this year's Navigator360 conference will explore the trends reshaping IT and provide leaders with the guidance they need to prosper in their emerging role as business partners.

Key technologies and topics covered at this year's conference include:

  • Emerging technologies including cloud, DevOps, software-defined services, Internet of Things, mobility, unified communications, next-generation contact centers, and collaboration
  • Developing and using the right metrics to document IT-driven business improvements
  • Leveraging analytics to determine and increase IT value
  • Engaging employees, partners, and customers inside and outside of the organization
  • Effectively managing risk and leveraging security as a business enabler
  • Adopting automation and IT as a Service to shift IT into a more agile, strategic role


What makes the Nemertes Navigator360 Conference Different?

This invitation-only event is designed from the ground-up for senior IT leaders. Sessions include numerous opportunities to engage with your peers and with Nemertes’ senior analysts. All participants will receive the “Key Takeaways” derived from discussions and event sessions and designed to give you actionable “next-steps” and a forward-looking view of the critical issues facing IT organizations for the next several years.

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to schedule one-on-one, complimentary meetings with Nemertes’ analysts to discuss key concerns, issues, or initiatives while receiving input and guidance from a Nemertes expert.
