11:30am Transforming work and decison-making across the enterprise

With apps at our fingertips, the nature of how we communicate and solve problems in our every day life has dramatically changed. And yet, how we get work done in the modern enterprise hasn’t fully completed this paradigm shift. Workers are still using personal productivity tools – spreadsheets combined with Word docs and PowerPoints – to solve highly complicated process and execution challenges. This panel session will discuss the next milestones we should be looking toward to further transform work and decision-making across the enterprise.
