This session covers root causes for this misalignment, shows how to deal with avoidable mistakes in blockchain projects and how to conceive realistic projects that will deliver business value.

Supply chain leaders often overestimate their ability to implement change. What actually drives SC employees to adapt to change is different from what SC leaders perceive leads to adoption. However, change management activities are not given the level of priority needed to gain employees' true commitment. Get the insights you need to manage change and to engage your employees in SC technology transformations. Wed, 25 Oct 2017 12:00:00 EDT 3805863 Gartner Webinars Preparing Your Organization for Modern BI and Analytics https://www.gartner.com/webinar/3805864?srcId=1-4707883444 EDT: 10:00 a.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. | GMT: 14:00 Modern BI and analytics is not (only) about having the right set of tools.

Yet many organizations don't recognize that the logistics and customer service functions typically have the most interactions with customers over the duration of the customer lifecycle. Companies are overlooking the opportunity these frequent interactions with customers represent and the pivotal role of the supply chain in driving better customer experiences. This webinar will offer insights on why the topic of customer experience is at the top of many CEO agendas, and how supply chain can embrace a leadership role in managing the customer's interactions and building excellence in customer experience.

In fact, we can't call it a data center anymore as data will be distributed in the cloud, managed hosted and or multiple colocation facilities. However, the data center is not dead - far from it. I&O teams must increase their agility by taking automation and orchestration initiatives to the next level while the organizations shifts from a capex to opex model. This webinar will address the top 2017 data center modernizations and infrastructure imperatives, trends and initiatives. We will discuss how data centers are evolving over the next 5 years and what technologies will be key to focus on. Wed, 01 Nov 2017 12:00:00 EDT 3816063 Gartner Webinars AI on the Edge: How AI and IoT Will Catalyze New Digital Value Creation https://www.gartner.com/webinar/3816668?srcId=1-4707883444 EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Two of today's most hyped technologies are AI and IoT. Hardly a week goes by without some "breaking news" about either or both of them, and social media conversation volume around AI has exploded. Coincidentally, the two technologies strongly complement each other, with each technology's strength addressing the other's weakness. Forward-thinking technology leaders can bring these technologies together to create a powerful new platform for digital business value creation.

And, with company growth topping CEOs' list of strategic business priorities, product innovation to support that growth is in the spotlight. Yet companies report that 40% of new product launches fail. We'll present the results of Gartner's latest study on how supply chains rate themselves on facilitating product development and S&OP alignment and how they are looking to close governance, metrics and technology gaps to improve new product introduction outcomes.

This session explores how to tell a business story that will be used by information and technology to deliver business results.

This session will explore the complex dynamics behind the healthy "no," and how CIOs can master this difficult skill.

Continual learning and improvement are at the heart of DevOps and so even if organizations start at the same place, they will be significantly different in just a few cycles. But that doesn't mean that there aren't good, practical rules for starting, improving and scaling. This webinar will tell you what we believe DevOps is today and 7 steps you can use to get started.
