Beyond the Horizon: Getting Your Organization to IoT, Big Data, AI and Blockchain
A colossal tidal wave of disruption is washing away the foundations of modern institutions. It’s clear: every organization needs to be reimagined, redesigned, and transformed for relevance in a hyperscale, digital-first world.
But realizing transformation is proving to be challenging for all but the most agile organizations. How do public and education leaders overcome the inertia of technical and organizational debt, and make quick wins that propel them forward? Once the foundation is laid, what are the next steps towards transformational deployment of advanced technologies like IoT, AI, Big Data and Blockchain?
Join Greg Bennett, former Director of Transformation at Imaginea Energy and founder of AIRIA, Atmosphere, and Google Developer Group Calgary, to explore the steps to true transformation. Together, we’ll learn what it takes to transform any organization into one that can unlock the future promised by advanced digital technology.

He is the former Director of Transformation at Imaginea Energy (now Imaginea.ai), a $350mm Oil and Gas startup where he was the architect of Clean Hydrocarbon, a vision for the future of energy that has been adopted by Canada’s Energy leaders.
