Think 2018 cloud disruptionBusiness as we know it has changed. If emerging technologies haven’t already reshaped your industry, it’s only a matter of time till they do. Some analysts are predicting that half of Fortune 500 companies will disappear in the next ten years. New challengers appear where we least expect them and incumbents face a choice: disrupt or be disrupted.

Last year, the IBM Hybrid Cloud team revealed our vision for how your business can harness these disruptive forces to your advantage. Technology has the power to help your organization thrive in a multicloud world: You can benefit from advances in AI while maintaining enterprise security and protecting existing investments. We showed you how an organization can achieve the IT agility of a startup while still enjoying the scale and security of an enterprise.
