In today’s always-connected, global environment, the business world is increasingly flat. Organizations must operate 24/7 utilizing teams distributed in different locations and time zones. These frequently ad-hoc but critical workgroups are the heart of the new social enterprise—driving business processes forward, spearheading change to keep an organization vibrant and relevant, and driving innovation to ensure business success.
Join us for our Social Business Thought Leaders Webcast series featuring industry experts with leading perspectives about how social tools, technology, and the changing workplace are affecting businesses today.
Coming up later this week, we’ll be broadcasting a fascinating discussion with one of the major technology thought leaders of this decade, Andy Mulholland. We featured Andy earlier in our webcast series and there was so much interest and so much more to discuss, that we invited him back another time.
The topic this week will be: Top 10 Technology Trends Driving Business Innovation
Thursday, July 19, 2012 10a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET

- Featuring: Andy Mulholland, Global CTO, Capgemini
Here's a preview from Andy's "CTOBlog" - Ten Game Changing Technology Shifts in 2012 -
For those of you that aren't familiar with Andy. Here's a snip of his bio from the CTOBlog.
Andy Mulholland was formerly Capgemini Global Chief Technology Officer, Andy was a member of the Capgemini Group management board and advised on all aspects of technology-driven market changes, together with being a member of the Policy Board for the British Computer Society. Andy is the author of many white papers, and the co-author of three books that have charted the current changes in technology and its use by business starting in 2006 with ‘Mashup Corporations’ detailing how enterprises could make use of Web 2.0 to develop new go to market propositions. This was followed in May 2008 by Mesh Collaboration focusing on the impact of Web 2.0 on the enterprise front office and its working techniques, then in 2010 “Enterprise Cloud Computing: A Strategy Guide for Business and Technology leaders” co-authored with well-known academic Peter Fingar and one of the leading authorities on business process, John Pyke. The book describes the wider business implications of Cloud Computing with the promise of on-demand business innovation. It looks at how businesses trade differently on the web using mash-ups but also the challenges in managing more frequent change through social tools, and what happens when cloud comes into play in fully fledged operations. Andy was voted one of the top 25 most influential CTOs in the world in 2009 by InfoWorld and is grateful to readers of Computing Weekly who voted the Capgemini CTOblog the best Blog for Business Managers and CIOs each year for the last three years.
