What to Expect in 2015


Luis Claudio Mangi
Luis Claudio Mangi

Vice President, Research and Conference Chair

Last year at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, we introduced the idea of digital business moments. And in my discussions with CIOs during the past six months, it’s become clear that organizations are moving from the digital vision to its implementation. This shift will require new capabilities in both people and technology.

To address this shift, we’re creating an agenda focused on your most critical priorities. You’ll be able to customize your experience through:
 
  • Sessions focused on strengthening your personal leadership skills and creating an engaged culture of innovation within your organization
  • Actionable insights on future trends to enhance your organization’s competitive advantage
  • Industry sessions that target your sector’s specific challenges and opportunities
  • Community engagements designed to build relationships, embrace new ideas and drive change
  • Evaluating and discussing solutions with leading solution providers on the ITxpo exhibit floor and targeted insight from senior executives on your organization’s shortlist, in a more intimate, focused environment
 
As the conference chair, I invite you to familiarize yourself with this year’s conference and what attendance will mean for you, your team and your organization. On behalf of Gartner, we hope you’ll take advantage of all that Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015 has to offer this fall.
 
Best regards,

Luis Claudio Mangi
