In the latest Global C-Suite Study, IBM used a cluster analysis to identify three archetypes that reflected Digital Reinvention across organizations of the participating C-suite executives. The three groups identified were: Reinventors, Practitioners and Aspirationals. “The Reinventors, making up 27 percent of the total, are the standouts.” One unique aspect of their ability to outperform their peers is having their IT strategy exceptionally well aligned with their business strategy. To help with this trend, the Sierra CXO Summit (which had traditionally been the CIO Summit) is organized as a day of interactive conversations between leading executives, industry leaders and entrepreneurs delivering leading edge technology.
The themes of the 2018 Sierra CXO Summit were: Harnessing the Power of Next Gen Infrastructure and AI Powered Digital Transformation. The panels and presentations on these topics were a great introduction for the need of heterogenous computing platforms and the need for ways to enable this at the enterprise. In a room packed with industry leading CXOs, Falcon Computing’s VP Product & Marketing, Sunder Parameswaran introduced how our technology is enabling adoption of Next Gen Infrastructure required to power Cognitive Era applications such as genomics, ML and AI- a great conversation starter before the evening reception which included a show from comedian Samy Obeid.
Thank you to our investors at Sierra Ventures for inviting us be part of this day and thank you to the executives of today’s most progressive enterprises that started to engage with us as they push forward on their Digital Reinvention.
