What are the issues facing your company today relative to impact of new technologies and their associated business risks?  This is a key question business leaders from all sized companies must address, as a new wave of technologies threatens to disrupt the business environment.  How do you determine what they are and how to handle them?  These technologies not only originate from customer demands and expectations, but from your own employees. 

In this presentation, emerging and maturing technologies and their associated risks will be discussed.  They include: the consumerization of technology demands facing the I/T departments from within the company, cloud computing, social media, virtualization, information security, and other related technologies.  The purpose of this session is to better equip you to work in close collaboration with your respective I/T organizations in the management of technology and business process changes to mitigate the potential risks.
