Translating AI and Digital Transformation into Value for your Customers

Communications technology consultants are now just as much in the business of technology as change management, and with that come new challenges for providing new value for customers. Keeping up with technology is difficult for everyone, and consultants are in a unique position to help customers do that.  To learn how, noted analyst and SCTC member Jon Arnold will talk about two big trends in particular – AI and digital transformation – not about the associated technologies, but rather how customers need to think about them to realize new value. Jon will share learnings from SCTC’s recent CRG event, as well from the Future of Work conference he just chaired.
