Oxford Technology & Media Presents Spring Networking Event 2016.
Digital is becoming ever more pervasive in our everyday lives, from film-makers to universities to SMEs to multinationals, and it now forms a core part of most organisations' daily operations.
The ‘Digital’ rate of change will only continue to accelerate as new technologies such as distributed ledgers and the Internet of Things become even more prevalent. At the core of this change will live a goldmine of data, which in itself will become an increasingly valuable asset, perhaps even more so than a company’s original business. This data will become an asset that is also becoming more regulated, forcing organisations to review how it is managed. When we step back and look are we, as organisations, really approaching digital any differently today than when we introduced our early e-commerce capabilities? This event explores what we mean by Digital Maturity, and how to understand and then improve your organisation’s digital maturity. The event will also tackle thorny questions such as how can organisations and individuals target the mobile consumer without breaking the rules? How can you build a successful profile in social media? Digital Maturity Taking on these questions on will be Ixium’s digital guru Gavin McLauchlan who has pioneered digital with organisations such Nielsen, the BBC, Microsoft and BT and Henry Kinniburgh whose career includes transformation projects at Nationwide, Cap Gemini, HP and Logica. We look forward to seeing you there! The event is free of charge for OTM members and will be held in the centre of Oxford at The Story Museum, 42 Pembroke St, OX1 1BP.
