Dawn of the DX Economy: Positioning for Leadership in an Accelerating World

In the next three years, we’ll see the emergence of digital transformation at a macroeconomic scale — the dawn of the “DX economy.” In this new digitally-transformed economy, enterprises in every industry will compete based on their ability to rapidly and continuously innovate, enabled by cloud, mobility, cognitive/AI, IoT, immersive interface, and other disruptive technologies. In the DX economy, every growing enterprise, no matter its age or industry, will become a “digital native” in the way its executives and employees think and operate.
  • The DX economy, the “digital native” enterprise and the changing tech industry landscape
  • Which 3rd platform technologies are driving the DX economy

Are you prepared for this new attack?

There is a hidden security threat in your office that could jeopardise your business - and the fact you don't even know about it is a big part of the problem. Printer hacking is becoming one of the biggest threats facing corporate IT. In February, a security researcher was able to hijack 150,000 printers around the world and remotely print his hacking message. What if his intent was malicious? Or targeting your business? Join Junaid Ur Rehman from HP Inc. who is travelling to Auckland especially for the CIO summit to educate attendees on this growing risk and to share the latest security advice.
