INNOVATION TOUR 2017
28 September 2017, London, United Kingdom

UNLEASH YOUR DIGITAL VISION

#WITHOUTCOMPROMISE

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:


  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

Digital Technology Drives Innovation – With You or Without You

Neil Ward-Dutton, Research Director, MWD Advisors
We live in a world where digital resources are almost infinitely abundant: but very few organisations have really embraced this new reality. As well as giving you the potential to reshape your products and services, operational processes and business model, digital technology also enables entirely new approaches to innovation processes themselves. Working from his research firm's exploration of digital innovation initiatives, Neil will share stories of what's possible – and show why you can't afford to let this opportunity pass

Big Change, Big Opportunity
Matt Smith, CTO, Software AG

Technology is changing the competitive landscape faster than ever. Native digital companies are disrupting entire markets with superior customer service.

Digital Transformation requires a Digital Business Platform to create unique ways to stand out from the competition. Our Digital Business Platform enables you to drive innovation and adapt to any future market or technology disruptions. The Digital Business Platform is your technology layer that enhances rather than replaces your current core IT systems. Gain a future-proof architecture and build differentiating applications to increase your competitiveness and success in a digital world.
