STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company, said today that Saugatuck Technology, an ISG business, will host its fifth annual Cloud Business Summit,  November 4 at the Yale Club in New York City. The event attracts senior business and financial executives, marketing strategists and technology leaders to discuss how enterprises are leveraging the latest digital technologies, including cloud, for greater operational impact and faster growth.

Bernard S. Myerson, Ph.D., chief innovation officer of IBM, will deliver the opening keynote address, "Information Technology: A Tectonic Shift." Myerson will explore the advent of new forms of parallelism that promise to go beyond Moore's Law and become a leading framework for defining IT over the planning horizon.

Along with thought leaders from Saugatuck Technology, including Founder and CEO Bill McNee, other featured speakers include Steve Hall, partner, ISG Emerging Technologies; senior technology leaders from such companies as ABB, Anthem Health, Dominion Enterprises, Ericsson, GE, Madison Square Garden, Verizon, Visa and Workday; and professors from Harvard University and MIT Sloan.

"Succeeding in business today requires not only the embrace of powerful cloud-based and other digital capabilities, it demands a rethinking of business fundamentals," said McNee. "In many regards, we are seeing Schumpeter's model of 'creative destruction' and economic reinvention at play, as Digital Business turns entire industries on their heads.

"In such an environment, the keys to success lie in taking more chances, embracing innovation, and learning from one's peers – both within and across industries – who have journeyed ahead of us. This applies to the core technologies -- cloud, mobile, social, advanced analytics and IoT – that are impacting business today, along with the new business fundamentals re-shaping strategy, finance, operations and marketing."

The Cloud Business Summit offers participants peer-to-peer networking, one-on-one chats with top vendor evangelists, and a conference track "designed to stretch your mind and bring Cloud technologies and Digital Business strategies down to earth," McNee said.

This year's agenda reflects the mainstreaming of cloud technologies and the emergence of Digital Business as a top-tier boardroom priority. Conference participants will engage with industry experts and their peers on such topics as:

  • The Journey to Digital Business: Managing Opportunity and Risk
  • Customer Engagement: Omni-Channel Strategies Driving Improved Outcomes
  • Getting Value Out of Real-time and Predictive Analytics
  • The New Digital Marketing Mandate: Agility and Customer Experience
  • The Cloud and Finance: Accelerating Demand Amid Security Headwinds
  • The Rise of Advanced Analytics: From Data to Business Insights
  • Applications and Infrastructure Meet the API Economy
  • Aligning the C-Suite to Enable Business Innovation
  • Building the Infrastructure Foundation: Preparing for Hyperscale
  • Mobility as Innovation Catalyst: Forcing Change in Business Platforms
  • Business Networks and Commerce: The Digitization of Supply Chains
  • The Internet-of-Things: Re-inventing Business
  • Governance, Performance, Security: The Connected Reality
