Digital Disruption - it's good for business

30 Aug 2013

The way in which new technology is transforming the world as we know it now has a name.

This profound change to every aspect of modern life from the way that we work to the way that we watch television is called 'digital disruption' and it will be the focus of a major conference to be held in Sydney on Thursday 5th September.

"Digital technology is changing our lives and industries at such a pace that it is disrupting our established approach to value creation, social interactions, the way we do business and the way that we think," says the University of Sydney Business School's Associate Professor Kai Riemer.

The DISRUPT.SYDNEY Conference, hosted by the Business School's Digital Disruption Research Group, will bring together global thought leaders in the field including Adam Pisoni, the co-founder Director of the San Francisco based Yammer Inc.

Yammer is an industry leader in corporate communications systems and Adam Pisoni is widely regarded as a pioneer in the use of social networking techniques in the corporate environment.

Other speakers include:

  • Steve Cadigan, former Vice President, Talent, at LinkedIn and now Cadigan Talent Ventures
  • Paula Bray, Sydney's Powerhouse Museum
  • Adam Holloway of Cisco Systems
  • Anne Bartlett-Bragg, Ripple Effects Group
  • Brad Krauskopf, founder of Third Spaces Group/Hub Australia

"On the face of it digital disruption could be seen as a threat to the way we work and live but it also opens up new opportunities that enable us to explore new ways of doing business," says Senior Lecturer, Dr Kristine Dery.
