Bloomberg Media has been chosen by Deloitte as its first ever media collaborator for its influential Tech Trends Report, which will be unveiled on February 25th.
“Deloitte Tech Trends 2016 – Innovating in the Digital Era” will address how critical trends that are reshaping the way businesses operate in a global environment are driving product design, upending long-standing business models and rewiring competition.
The Bloomberg Tech Dinner, sponsored by Deloitte, will be an exclusive dinner and roundtable discussion hosted by Bloomberg News cybersecurity reporter Michael Riley, featuring GE Power Chief Information Officer Clay Johnson, Siege Technologies Founder and CEO Jason Syversen, and Siemens Head of Cyber Security for the Americas Ben Collar, as well as a select group of business and technology leaders. The discussion will zero in on the balance between security and innovation in a world where moon-shot ideas are becoming business reality and the security implications of the latest generation of tech tools for business, from the internet of things to blockchain and beyond.
The Bloomberg Tech Dinner roundtable will be live streamed at 7:30 pm EST at bloomberg.com/live/stream.
Deloitte is a sponsor of the forthcoming Bloomberg Tech Conference held on June 13-14, at The St. Regis in San Francisco.
“Deloitte and Bloomberg share a tradition of innovation, so naturally we are proud to partner with them as we bring this ground-breaking information to our global audience,” said global chief revenue and client partnerships officer Paul Caine.
“As we launch Tech Trends for the seventh year, we are exploring how every company is a technology company at its core – reimagining not just how work gets done, but driving new products, services, offerings, and even business models,” said Bill Briggs, chief technology officer, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and author of the annual research. “Our launch event will convene technology leaders from across different sectors to discuss innovation and security, AR/VR, blockchain, IoT and more — critical trends organizations need to harness to build tomorrow, starting today.”
