There is no denying that the business world is in the midst of a massive shift – a digital reset that is driving business transformation across all industries. This shift is driven by a wave of disruptive technologies – artificial intelligence (AI), 5G, the Internet of Things, the cloud and more – that are completely reshaping innovation, operational efficiency and customer interactions for all businesses.

To help senior business and IT leaders prepare, learn and be inspired by this business transformation, Intel is hosting SHIFT 2017 today in New York City. The event is intended to be a meeting place of ideas and perspectives on how digital business transformation is unfolding across the business landscape.

The SHIFT agenda features a leading business luminaries, technology industry experts and Intel executives. Speakers include:

Among the topics to be discussed at SHIFT is how all the customers that Intel serves – cloud and communications service providers, enterprises, HPC and AI engineers among them – can fuel their digital transformation with the Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform.

Introduced earlier this year, the Intel Xeon Scalable platform is Intel’s biggest data center advancement this decade, offering the versatility to cover compute, storage and network in the modern data center.
