Industry after industry is being transformed by IT-enabled disruptive innovation. These include not only information-based industries, such as banking, media, real estate, and education, but also "atom-based" industries like transportation, agriculture, and health care.  

 

At this event, speakers will assess why these transformations are occurring, how they will impact consumers and businesses, and the public policies required to spur even more disruptive innovation. Malcolm Frank, Paul Roehrig, and Ben Pring will discuss their book Code Halos: How the Digital Lives of People, Things, and Organizations are Changing the Rules of Business, which describes how new technologies, such as social media, mobile, data analytics, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things, are sparking new commercial models that can dramatically flip market dominance from industry stalwarts to challengers. In addition, Larry Downes will discuss his new book Big Bang Disruption: Strategy in the Age of Devastating Innovation, which provides strategy for companies keeping pace with disruptive game changers. Finally, leading IT analyst David Moschella will discuss why some technologies disrupt the marketplace while others are still only a dream. 

 

100 signed copies of Code Halos will be given away on a first come, first serve basis. 

 

The event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules. Lunch will be provided.

 

A live webcast will be available on this page.
