"Digitization of Small &
Mid-Sized Businesses"

A Panel Discussion

The current Digital Economy is requiring all businesses to become digital businesses.  Large or small, established or startup, properly leveraging Digital is more than a differentiator, it is foundational to sustained survival.  But where does hype end and reality begin, and where is the sweet spot for organizations on the digital curve?  Metro Atlanta has become a hot spot for digital innovation, and together we’re working to implement digitization in a fiscally responsible way.  Join us for an afternoon of discussion and fun, as we explore best practices in moving the needle on the benefits of digitization for your organization, and without busting the business case.  Then we’ll enjoy our home town Atlanta Braves take on the Philadelphia Phillies.  Come and join in the dialogue as we do our part to shape Atlanta’s digital economy.
