Billions and Trillions: Devices, Data, and Demand for Information Systems in a Connected World
At this year's conference, many of the discussions will revolve around emerging technologies and techniques that will address IS-related opportunities and challenges expected to arise over the next decade. Participants will also explore new perspectives on legacy technologies and their continuing evolution in this new and challenging marketplace.
