SOFTWARE AG INNOVATION TOUR -
BET YOUR ‘DIGITAL' LIFE ON IT!
Digitalisation offers your customers more choice. Choice of suppliers, choice of how and when to buy. It drives the creation of new business models that power the formation of your next competitor – at a speed you have never seen before. Non-Software companies are using software to create these new business models, to disrupt and then lead. What should you do? Not sure where to start or where to go from here? Join the Software AG UK Innovation Tour and take the journey with us through these 3 steps:
- Realise your current state.
Don’t throw away everything you have built or achieved. Innovation brings with it the ability to utilise existing technology in a way you didn’t think possible. We will help you evaluate what you currently have, get a grip on the ‘as is’ reality and show you what can continue to be leveraged
- What to focus on?
How should you be spending your time? What should you really focus on? Cloud? Big Data? IoT? Let us help you focus and share with you what your peers are doing
- Be a futureologist!
Are Robots really going to take over? Did you know 60% of common jobs will be gone in the next 25 years?
It’s a balance between the here and now and how you will innovate to differentiate in the future. In the third step of our innovation tour, let us open your mind to future possibilities
