Keynote: Winning in a World of Digital Dragons
Dave Aron, Distinguished VP Analyst, Gartner

Digital disruption is coming to every industry and geography. Digital dragons like Alibaba, Amazon and others are playing evolving roles, related not only to technology, but also to customer experience, payment, data and insight. They have deep pockets, great talent and attractive brands. Every industry is digitalizing, and digital dragons are a critical piece of that story. Digital dragons are a different type of partner, pervading many aspects of your enterprise and ecosystem. CIOs must: - Ensure that they have joined up management of their interactions with each dragon. - Maintain a digital dragon knowledge base and develop a strategic posture toward them. - Learn from other industries that have been disrupted earlier or more heavily, such as automotive.
