What’s on the agenda

Chief Wine Officer and sponsor IBM are excited to invite you to our exclusive VIP experience, at the stunning Cosby Street Hotel, Soho NYC. Join us for an evening that combines high-level discussions, fine-wine tasting and gourmet dining.

Becoming digital was just the start. Organizations are now transforming from the inside-out by bringing together data, smart technology and smarter people. Come along and discover how to equip your organization to become more agile, scale up security and to empower your people.

The rise and re-invention of the Cognitive Enterprise is reshaping standard business architectures and the development of intelligent workflows is changing how work gets done. We’ll share how to exploit the potential of the vast amounts of data and exponential technologies – everything from AI and automation to Blockchain, IoT and 5G.

During dinner, expect crucial insights on how IBM’s people-centric innovations enhance enterprise agility, encouraging new ways of working and development, including:

  • How data can be utilized effectively creating deeper context and insight
  • How cognitive enabled processes and workflows will reinvent their workforce, with enterprise agility underpinning new ways of working and employee development.
