Many organizations are investing heavily into systems and processes to become digitally operational across their entire business. This involves integration, investment into new systems and upgrades, new processes, and new ways of thinking to gain the most value from these strategic initiatives.

While investing into people, processes, and systems are great steps to realizing a digital value stream, a wholly integrated and usable ecosystem is what is desired. This is where all systems benefit from and share data across all aspects of an organizations footprint. While it may be simply overstated, data is the currency that creates value across systems and where people meet the boundary of the digital landscape.

To ensure these efforts are efficiently leading you to a destination where an ecosystem is realized, you must ensure that all your efforts are aligned and working to achieve this synergy. This includes data governance, change management, team leadership, digital and asset management strategy, and roadmaps for aligned success, just to name a few.

Given you have the data you need, and that it is organized and defined, do your people and systems utilize this data seamless across all processes, business units, continents? A true ecosystem allows all people, systems, and data to work together to continuously drive value where no limitations are holding back the potential of your resources.


**This session was originally scheduled for 1/25 and has been rescheduled to 2/10**

Objectives of this session include:

  • Understand the foundational elements needed for ecosystems to exist.  
  • Learn the questions you should be asking of your process and systems to understand if they are providing value or simply controlling your resources.
  • See examples of how traditionally un-connected solutions provide immediate value when data is available to all parties in your organization.
  • Learn about ecosystem development where best of breed systems are built into ecosystems that support people and process for near term benefits.
  • How to address and utilize data disparity to create insights and drive the evolution of data capture using design thinking.
