Join digital transformation leaders from Levvel, Red Hat, AvidXchange, and Wells Fargo for a presentation and panel discussion on why companies like Blockbuster and Borders failed, and why it matters to a bank, insurance company, FinTech startup, energy company, healthcare organization, or other big enterprise in 2017.

Learn why companies like Blockbuster and Borders failed and why it matters to your business in 2017. The answers is only partly related to technology, but critical to remaining relevant as more businesses struggle to become digital natives.

The reality is that people, process, culture, and technology all play important roles. Come out to see industry leaders discuss how these factors play a part in every company’s success—or failure—and learn about some tools that can help you be more successful as you consider digital transformation.

Join us for a happy hour and networking period after the discussion.
