Rise to the Challenge
A digital wave is sweeping through every industry, organization and culture.

Now is the time to operate at two speeds: pursuing agile practices to compete at the digital speeds while focusing on rock-solid IT reliability to support the core business.
In the Opening Keynote, Gartner’s leading analysts will present the roadmap to digital business reality. Digital business is a team sport, involving all business disciplines.
