Digital Business with Peter Suhr, Senior Managing Partner at Gartner

About the event

Disruption. Transformation. Artificial intelligence, robots and exponential growth. These are terms that are on companies’ agendas everywhere in the world. Competitive landscapes are shifting and companies prepare for a future where technology plays a highly central role for their products and services. As a result, large scale transformations are initiated in companies to accommodate innovation and stay competitive.

At this event, we have invited our own Executive MBA alum, Peter Suhr, who works for the world’s leading research and advisory company, Gartner. As a Senior Managing Partner, Peter has unrivalled insight into the most important trends and developments, and every day he helps companies make the right decisions about their future.

Focus will be on trends and drivers across industries– paired with real life company examples. Many incumbent companies are investing in digital services and products, yet most face difficulties in monetizing the investments. However, some seem to break through and increase the revenue stream from new, digitized concepts. We will discuss why some succeed and others fail – also by looking at what to learn from non-asset based digitalized companies – the so called Digeraties.
