Feb 17, 2021  Tech Trends 2021 Thriving Through Disruptive Change 4:30-6:30p



The pandemic and the economic fallout that it brought caused many businesses to go bankrupt, unable to adapt to the disruption of shutting down physical operations and interacting with customers and employees digitally. It's the latest reminder that organizations must build resilience to withstand the next major market disruption to survive in today's economy. To thrive, they must create the capabilities that will seize on the opportunities brought by change.

In the Tech Trends 2021 Report, we'll explore three trends that help create resilience in the face of disruption:

  1. Digital sustainability – apply technology towards the goal of achieving cost savings in energy reductions and reduced carbon emissions.
  2. Machine learning by design – make machine learning a core part of your value proposition.
  3. Self-sovereign cloud – maintain maximum control over your infrastructure with encryption, data sovereignty compliance, and optimal infrastructure.
