Didier Bonnet outlines ‘how’, revealing key insights from this recent book, Leading Digital, co-written with the M IT Center for Digital Business.

Keynote 5: Digital as a State of Mind: Unlocking Big Data Potential and Tackling Digital Disruption

Digital innovation is shaking the core of every industry and incumbents are struggling to respond. Capgemini Consulting’s Chief Digital Officer, Fernando Alvarez, provides insight in to how a ‘digital state of mind’ underlines a successful strategy for responding to digital disruption. Indeed, when it’s a state of mind, digital transformation is an enabler of business transformation.

But thinking and doing are two separate things. Fernando’s session will outline what separates successful enterprises and specifically through their big data implementations – addressing the fact that while most enterprises recognize the importance of big data, few are embracing the truly disruptive opportunity.

Delegates attending this session will learn about what’s needed in their operating model to unlock their enterprise’s big data potential and come away with a checklist to help negotiate their industry’s digital disruption!
