The Cognitive Enterprise: Reinventing your company with AI
A new era of business reinvention is dawning. Organizations are facing an unprecedented convergence of technological, social and regulatory forces. As artificial intelligence (AI), automation, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain and 5G become pervasive, their combined impact will reshape standard business architectures. The “outside-in” digital transformation of the past decade is giving way to the “inside-out” potential of data exploited with these exponential technologies. We call this next-generation business model the Cognitive Enterprise.

The Future of Enterprise Document and Content Ecosystems
This session explains how top global enterprises are using SaaS platforms to streamline and future-proof the way employees create and use business documents (and other communications), and gain intelligent insights from this usually black-boxed content. The session will cover:
  • The key issues facing on-premise enterprise document and content ecosystems and the opportunities for improving digital employee experiences and content governance with SaaS ecosystems
  • Practical approaches to optimizing document lifecycles from both an end-user and an administrator perspective.
  • The shift from documents and other business communications being merely static and black-boxed content to offering business insights and intelligence.
Christian Lund, Co-Founder, Templafy
