The 2014 Nexus of Forces Scenario

This complimentary morning session, will be given by Chris Howard, Gartner Managing Vice President and Chief of Research. 

Topic:
Do you have customers? Partners? Employees? Citizens? If you do, then you are being impacted by the Nexus of Forces. In this Gartner Local Briefing, you’ll learn how organizations around the world are harnessing the Nexus for a spectrum of new business opportunities. 

The Nexus of Forces is the convergence and mutual reinforcement of social, mobility, cloud, and information patterns that drive new business scenarios. New business opportunities emerge from this Nexus of Forces, especially scenarios which extend reach and relationship to customers, citizens, patients, employees, or any other participant in an ecosystem of humans and machines. The combination of pervasive mobility, near-ubiquitous connectivity, industrial compute services, and information access decreases the gap between idea and action. To take advantage of the Nexus of Forces and respond effectively, organizations must face the challenges of modernizing their systems, skills, and mindsets. 

In this session, Chris Howard, Gartner Managing Vice President and Chief of Research will provide an overview of the Nexus of Forces, with insights from our CEO, CIO, IT Leaders, and Technology Professionals research areas. 

Hosted by Gartner representatives, this briefing will also provide the opportunity to network with other local professionals who are tackling similar initiatives and issues.
