We heard from a great group of lead expert panelists on the never ending Digital journey. Start-ups are using new technologies to disrupt industries of all types and changing the way customers think. They are able to disrupt industries overnight. With Disruption at the forefront of most businesses it is critical for CIOs to lead their organisations in a way that make them as agile as their competitors. The main topics discussed were:
