A note from the Conference Chair

Gene Phifer

VP Distinguished Analyst and Conference Chair

The digital age has arrived. With businesses looking to applications to drive everything from growth and loyalty to new products and markets, it’s no surprise last year’s Applications summit drew record attendance. More than 1,500 IT and business leaders joined 46 Gartner analysts and guest speakers.

The summit kicked off with six popular rapid-fire boot-camp sessions focused on cloud, workshops and a welcome reception. After an opening keynote reviewed emerging digital business opportunities and challenges, analysts presented the latest insights across applications priorities in more than 60 sessions.

The big message? Prioritize agility. Get there by using a bimodal approach that supports both long-term goals and ready responsiveness. IT must dig deep to find ways to enable innovation, architect change and make digital business transformation happen.

Join us this year to see what new application strategies and insights will be shared.
