Executive Conference Explores Short- Mid- and Long-term Strategies for Enterprise Computing

NTT Global ForumThe urgencies and demands associated with making it through the day often prevent enterprise technology executives from fully understanding the issues on the horizon that will fundamentally transform the way business is done.  This happens despite the fact that forces are already at work to make many of the actions we take today dangerously obsolete tomorrow.

That is why the upcoming conference hosted by NTT Communications on “Delivering the Future with the Seamless Cloud” — to be held October 5, 2014 at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes Orlando, Florida — is such an important event.

Most planning processes begin by assessing the current state of business and the economy to suggest the steps executives should take over the next five, ten and 15 years.  For this event, well respected futurists and analysts will describe the social, demographic, economic and technological meta-trends that will define our global societies twenty years down the road.  Armed with a firm understanding of how humanity will use increasingly technology-driven culture to adapt to unfolding historical forces, a panel of thought leaders on the development and implementation of information technology will discuss the practical options available to manage our careers — and lead our organizations — toward long-term success.

Join this executive day of exploration as we examine:

* A View of The Future — Dr. James Canton will present our keynote on the future of cloud computing. A world-renowned business strategist and futurist, Dr. Canton will share his forecast for the latest technology trends.

* Exclusive State of the Industry Insight — NTT and CIO Magazine have joined together to underwrite a study on the state of the technology industry. It will be presented by Lane F. Cooper, a researcher, reporter and editor with more than 20 years of experience analyzing the business and technology industry.
