This session will challenge the tendency of IT leaders to focus on technology. Meaningful organizational impact starts with changing culture, not changing technology. We’ll discuss how to cast a vision for your organization, take a realistic inventory of where you are today, & build an attainable implementation roadmap. We will draw from specific examples where culture change has impacted an organization more than any technology change (for better or worse). Key topics include productivity & efficiency gains using IBM Collaboration tools such as Verse, Watson Workspace, & Connections, empowered talent with new applications using IBM Bluemix & Cloud, and the ‘cool’ factor in transforming how IT is perceived via innovation with IBM Watson. We will also look at how other technologies from other vendors fit into the conversation.
