“From smartphones to tablets. From wearables to the Internet of Everything. From big data in the cloud to the creative power of people in the crowd. Humans are racing toward a “hypernetworked now” that reimagines every aspect of how we live and work. Companies that can’t transform at the speed of change will face an uncertain future at best and certain failure at worst. Those that can will see exciting opportunities for exponential growth. Digital transformation expert Greg Verdino will explore the very real ways in which manufacturers, distributors and the electrical industry as a whole can put networks to work for collaboration, innovation and new value creation.”
That’s the abstract for my opening keynote at the IDEA 2014 e-Biz Forum. For folks who attended the event today, or anyone else who might be interested, you can flip through my slides below or download the full set in PDF format from Slideshare. The usual caveat applies: my slides are always designed to complement my speech, not be my speech. Frequent followers will recognize some of these and will spot many of my familiar themes, along with some new examples presented specifically for this event’s electrical industry audience.
