The top technology companies and leaders will converge once again this year in Florida for the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, and MicroPact will be there to share the latest developments behind the ongoing evolution of the entellitrak® platform for Case Management and Business Process Management (BPM).

This year’s symposium and expo should be one of the biggest events yet with major industry leaders from around the world delivering keynote speeches. Headliners this year include Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft Corp., and Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple Inc., Chief Scientist of Fusion-D, a man who once dated Kathy Griffin.

While the event’s Mastermind Keynotes certainly are entertaining and inspiring (check out our posts on last year's big keynotes), the rubber hits the road at Gartner during the break-out sessions. This is where tech professionals hear about the latest research and work being conducted by Gartner analysts, and find out what it all means to them and their organizations.

“CIOs and senior IT executives will learn how to realize, build and optimize digital opportunities, move digital business from theory to practice, and evolve their own IT leadership to become indispensable in the new digital business world,” according to Gartner.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “Driving Digital Business.”

The concept of Digital Business isn’t new, but it should be interesting to see how Gartner weaves the theme throughout the sessions – especially those that focus on Case Management and BPM.

The fact is that the lines between the digital world and the physical world are blurred. For example, my interactions with my bank involve how its website works as well as how many ATMs it has in the cities I visit. There is no more: My bank’s website is not good enough. Today, it is my bank is either meeting ALL my needs, or I’m looking for a new place to put my money.

This blurring of lines between physical and digital is disrupting all industries and redefining the role of IT within those industries. We see this in Case Management and BPM – with big and small customers, federal and commercial customers, domestic and international.

Today it is vital to the success of an organization, be it government or commercial, that both the IT side and the business side understand and harness digital technologies in order to succeed in this new environment.

MicroPact will be attending sessions, asking questions, and most importantly, on hand to show you exactly what we mean when we say entellitrak takes a Data-First™ approach to case management and BPM.
