Avanade Technology Vision 2015

It’s widely accepted that technology is among the most potent accelerators of the rate of change.

Digitization is the irresistible force driving (and enabling) all businesses to rethink their response to markets and reshape their operations.

Change is never easy, but we believe the trends outlined below make it a necessity. They will require rethinking business models, employee and customer relationships, risks, partnerships and more.

Vision 2020 - Internet of Things

Do you remember what was hot in 2000? How about 1994? Do you have "20/20 vision" into how we will live, work and play in 2020?

On June 10, participate in a fascinating discussion led by industry experts who will lay out their "vision" for several years down the road. What advances or trends might occur in the workplace, in living and entertainment, in health, travel and education? How much smarter will your phone become? How much smarter will you become? What should you do to prepare?

Please join the NVTC Technology Innovations Committee as we delve into these topics, and you can provide us with your "20/20 Vision" as well!

Destination Innovation

Destination Innovation 2014 featured a competition of 16 of the region's innovators who discussed their innovative technology, including why it is disruptive and how it solves a real-world problem. The companies, divided into social, commerce, government and security categories, were selected by online votes submitted during a competition on the Capital Business website. After listening to two minute pitches from each of the innovators, attendees at the event voted for one company in each category and the top two companies from each category moved on to the final round of the program.

The final round consisted of a head-to-head competition between the remaining two companies in each category. A panel of experts asked the competing companies questions about their innovations, markets and business strategies. The winner in each category - LynxFit by Byte an Atom Research (Social), Homesnap (Commerce), LMI (Government), and Key Cybersecurity (Security) - was decided by the expert panel.

The event also featured keynote remarks from SocialRadar's Michael Chasen and former HP CEO Carly Fiorina.
