DiS17_Speaker_Stephen Brobst

Every industry will be transformed by the new business models and revolutionary possibilities created by digital society in the 21stcentury.

This talk will address the critical success factors that leaders must embrace when transforming an enterprise into a player for the digital age. 

We will discuss the importance of data-driven business models to transform from traditional customer relationship management to customer experience management in the new world of digitally enabled customers.

We will present a framework that will emphasize the importance of real-time recommendation engines leveraging operational intelligence using self-learning algorithms with techniques drawn from the world of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

We will also propose an approach for monetizing data as a critical success factor for all enterprises who want to be successful in the digital age.  Issues such as enabling cultural change, organizational skill set requirements, and governance will also be discussed.  Case study examples of organizations that have been successful in executing digital transformation will be used throughout the presentation.
