The technology age. Gartner Outlook 2019: Challenges and Strategies


March 27 OF 2019 from 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

The ESADE Alumni Digital Business Club is pleased to announce their forthcoming talk by Mariola Lobato, executive partner at Gartner, about tech trends in recent years and possible solutions to the doubts arising from this evolution.

Digital development is a cornerstone of our times so it’s essential to have a global view of the tech trends that underpin the roadmap of innovation (artificial intelligence, augmented reality and other developments related to the IOT), without overlooking the management of resources in organisations, their professional development, privacy and on-disclosure agreements.

Against this backdrop, Mariola Lobato will be presenting ContinuosNext, a strategy to deal with the changes stemming from the onset of new methods and technologies. 

The Emerging techologies diagram will be a springboard for the following questions: How have tech trends changed in recent years and what factors have characterised these changes? Is this enough for our journey towards innovation? Has big data gone out of fashion? What concepts and values are desirable in cultural transformation?
