About the Seminar
In this presentation, Dean Hopkins
will explore how technologies now enable companies to redefine where
they begin and end. This gives rise to the concept of creating a
tightly woven network of players that combine to deliver the product or
service to the customer. These new networks, if built correctly, threaten enterprises
that remain isolated with a much more proactive, customer driven, profitable model.
In fact, enterprises have been moving toward this model for some time, but are
now able to make a significant leap forward as many of the technology
barriers have recently fallen.
