IT-Enabled Products and Services
Roundtable on Digital Strategies Publication
The Americas chapter of the Roundtable on Digital Strategies convened in Cleveland at the Eaton Center in June 2013, to discuss the emergence of new products and services enabled by embedded IT. These new capabilities in data generation, collection, and communication create important new opportunities for all kinds of applications and businesses, but they are also placing stringent new demands on IT organizations. The Roundtable gathered to discuss topics relating to both sides of this dynamic, including business models, security concerns, impacts on IT and business operations, and the very nature of the future role of IT in the enterprise. Participants in the session included CIOs and their executive business partners from Bechtel, Chevron, Eaton, Eastman Chemical, the Hilti Group, Nike, and Time Warner Cable, as well as professors from the Center for Digital Strategies at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
