TIBCO NOW 2017 Brings Digital Smarter to Singapore
Blog: The Tibco Blog
Welcome to Digital Smarter! On Monday, March 26, TIBCO kicked off its global TIBCO NOW event, with the first stop in Singapore. This year’s theme: Digital Smarter, continues the theme of transformational topics that began in 2015 with Enterprise Disruption, and was followed by Destination Digital last year. In the short span of three years, the focus of TIBCO’s message went from recognizing the reality of the disruptive nature of digital transformation, to painting a vision of its potential, to this year’s focus on executing with an intelligent plan to attain digital leadership.
The compelling nature of Digital Smarter came from the keen observation that the technology landscape is changing more with respect to the volume and variety of new products, trends, and approaches than the actual pace of change. Decision makers are more often overwhelmed by the complexity of the choices that they have to make rather than the speed in which their worlds are evolving.
“The challenge is not about how to react to a market where smartphone penetration is vastly outpacing the business model changes required to capitalize on their computational power,” states CMO Thomas Been , “but instead on how to integrate, orchestrate, and apply so many concurrent factors: mobility, social computing, big data, AI, IOT, the sharing economy, DevOps, cloud, and so on.”
Through this transformation, the fundamentals of business performance and creating and sustaining enterprise value have essentially remained the same. Digital Transformation has heightened their focus and more succinctly separated the leaders from the laggards. Leaders continue to demonstrate laser-focused attention to the use of powerful analytics to provide clarity to increasingly larger sets of unstructured data in order to deliver actionable insights. Digital leaders focus on customers and customer experience as a means of directing resources where changes in performance most directly impact enterprise value. And leaders use technology to shape, manage, and develop their organizations to deliver against their digital roadmaps.
Digital Disruption is behind us and for many the destinations of Digital Transformation have been set. Digital Smarter lays out the path forward for organizations in any industry, anywhere in the world.
