Gartner research over the past several years has identified the independent evolution of the Nexus of Forces, the convergence of four powerful forces: social, mobile, cloud and information. Gartner Symposium/ITxpo aligns these forces and explains the impact of digitalization on the revenue of business in the future, what changes need to be made in terms of delivering agility using technology and how technology drives change in relationships with customers.

“As digital forces reshape industry, business, government and society, IT leaders must act quickly and decisively to convert technology disruption into business transformation,” said Christine Furano, senior director with Gartner Events. “This year’s agenda is designed to help CIOs and senior IT leaders drive IT value while accelerating growth, creating new connections and driving greater agility in a digital world.”
