ETx Canada Summit has gone Digital!

Although we've had to postpone the live ETx Canada event this October, the demand for content, education, networking, and camaraderie remains at an all-time high. With that in mind, we are switching to a digital platform to keep the community together until we can go back to our live event next year.

We will be hosting a complimentary digital event experience for ETx Canada Summit on November 18th from 12:30 – 4:30 PM ET.  The event will feature top-line content, peer-to-peer discussions, and one-on-one deep dive appointments for Canadian IT & Security leaders with vendors of your choice, along with a ton of fun! In appreciation for their time, attendees who schedule 3-5 vendor meetings of their choice will receive a complimentary incentive package and gift basket worth $300 CAD.

ETx Canada Summit Overview

ETx Canada is a hosted tech-trends summit focused on bringing IT and Security leaders together with peers, industry thought leaders and solution providers for peer-to-peer networking and knowledge sharing. For the past six years, this unique event has served as the ideal educational and social forum helping CIOs, CISOs and IT leaders across Canada build new relationships and understand the latest solutions and strategies to stay innovative and forward-thinking.

ETx Canada features a comprehensive agenda  with keynote sessions, panel discussions, breakout sessions, case study presentations and 1-on-1 meetings. With member support from the CIO Association of Canada, the quality of networking and conversation is at its peak, enabling our attendees to have an even more productive conference experience.

The Future Enterprise in the Digital Economy

The future enterprise is IDC's vision for how organizations must organize and invest to serve increasingly digitally centric customers and citizens. The digital economy has been eagerly anticipated for years, but felt to be in the distant future. As we look beyond 2020, we can see the digital economy appear on the horizon. By 2023, products and services from digitally transformed enterprises will account for more than half of the global GDP, according to IDC’s research. Business and IT leaders in enterprise and government will need to focus on four key areas when thinking about the digital economy:

  • Customer and Citizen Experience: Organizations will need to create empathy with customers at scale; pivoting operations from throughput and efficiency to market-driven objectives; and engendering trust with customers.
  • Digital Capabilities and Talent: Acquiring and building new capabilities will be critical, with the goal of becoming an intelligent (AI-driven) organization, creating software to deliver innovative services and personalized experience at scale, and implementing new work models within the organization.
  • Critical infrastructure: Leaders will also need to shift their view of critical infrastructure as physical plants and buildings are replaced by digital IT infrastructure and connectivity. This will be necessary to ensure reliable digital services and experiences and to create the pervasive experiences digital customers expect.
  • Industry Ecosystems: What becomes of their industry as new ecosystems develop and power shifts among industry players? To succeed, business leaders will need to define the new value in the digital economy, who their new partners will be, and what role they will play in these ecosystems.
