Finally, they’ve made a Rocky VII. The Rocky storyline is a great metaphor for business. When you’re the small, no-name in the industry, you need talent, determination and grit to get to the next level of success. When you make it big, you can’t afford to get complacent, you need to maintain the eye of the tiger - stay hungry and competitive if you’re going to survive.
The 2015 Gartner Symposium in Orlando, Florida is going to be an epic event. Gartner has structured the agenda around mission-critical priorities and categorized them under six tracks: Renovate the IT Core, Architect the Digital Business, Plan for the Digital Future, Lead the Digital Enterprise, Create a Dynamic Organization and Drive Business Growth. There’s a clear focus on digital transformation, because this is a customer-centric world we’re living in and taking your business digital will be a key factor in your ability to stay competitive and relevant.

They say that these three technologies rank last in investment and perceived value, but may be the key to helping some companies become a disruptor.
Gartner always does a great job addressing issues like these and providing perspective. But in many ways, digital is uncharted territory, and your business is a unique ecosystem with specific needs. Trying to understand how all of this information can be leveraged by your company can lead to questions on top of the questions.
