Experience an objective, strategic digital utilities perspective

Continuing pressure on the utility sector, in particular democratization of energy provisioning, fueled by the confluence of sustainability concerns and exponential innovation in consumer energy technology is disrupting utilities and challenging traditional business models.

To succeed during challenging times, utilities will have to reinvent their business by leveraging digital technology to become both agile and resilient. That will require a buildup of a digital technology infrastructure to improve observability and orchestration of an increasingly diverse ecosystem of partners beyond meters.

Program overview

We offer a mix of strategic and operational advice highlighting such topics as intelligent operations and composable architecture. Also, the program provides lessons from digital dragons, which dominate their markets by building digital technology infrastructure to leverage consumer technology innovation. 

Whether you’re looking to validate your strategy, enhance your professional network or simply reconnect with peers face-to-face, the Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™ journey is curated to provide guidance in the areas most meaningful to your organization.
