NextPoint 2017: Business Networking Where Being Alone Is Not An Option

NextPoint 2017: Business Networking Where Being Alone Is Not An Option

It’s not easy for a small company like Mission Data to gain valuable time with executives of large and influential enterprises. Often, companies like us rely heavily on referrals from their existing customers or clients. While this is generally a successful approach, the results are often haphazard, opportunistic, and somewhat slow.

For a change of pace, we were drawn to NextPoint 2017, held in Miami earlier this month. The three-day “speed networking” event offers solution providers face-to-face meetings and access to executives and influencers of substantially-sized retailers.

My First Bite of FSTEC

My First Bite of FSTEC

Just got back from the FSTEC event in Anaheim, CA, last week. It was Mission Data’s first sponsorship of this event and we showcased our new OpSense operations monitoring platform. The event is ostensibly a technology summit for restaurant operators, both large and small. Attendees ranged from Papa John’s and Taco Bell to very small emerging restaurant chains with one or two restaurants.

FSTEC is one of the premier technology conferences for the foodservice industry. For more than 20 years, the event has connected industry executives and restaurants to new ideas and innovations. Mission Data is proud to serve as a silver sponsor at this year’s event.

Augmented Reality is Ready to Play

Augmented Reality is Ready to Play

At Mission Data, we think a lot about how emerging technology can revolutionize the world of business. Immersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR) bring an opportunity for workers to be more efficient, informed, and safer in real-time. By laying digital interactions over the physical world, AR is essentially bringing surfaces to life. However, as AR moves from novelty to wider acceptance, it’s entertainment companies such as game and toy makers that are leading the way—and they’re turning the technology into a whole lot of fun.

A Tale of Two Conferences, Part I: Forrester Digital Transformation Fizzles

I’ve been oddly procrastinating on writing a recap after attending SpeechTek in Washington, DC (April 24-26). I liked the conference and had quite a few takeaways, but prioritized other work. Then, Mission Data was a sponsor Forrester’s Digital Transformation conference in Chicago (May 8-10), so my writer’s block now enables me to contrast a conference focused on tech and one oriented to business.

Digital Transformation in 2017: What Would Bond Do?

Mission Data recently attended and sponsored the 2017 Forrester Digital Transformation conference in Chicago, which gathered thought leaders in business and tech to discuss the myriad ways that digital is changing the enterprise and its customers. Keynote speakers drove home the theme—companies should be digitally transforming now, if they haven’t already, or they risk becoming the next Blockbuster.

Digital Transformation: Are You On the Right Path?

Digital transformation — that perennial tech buzzword — what does it mean, anyway? Essentially, digital transformation describes the fundamental, all-encompassing change that technology brings to organizations’ key strategies, processes, products, skillsets, and culture. According to the leading pundits, if your company is not digitally transforming, you’re doomed to be disrupted. Sound overwhelming?
