Rapid change is permeating every industry. In telecommunications, the demand for bandwidth is pushing the limits of the existing networks. In retail, the in-store experience is struggling against the boom of e-commerce and same day shipping. In government, a demand for transparency is putting focus on updating decades old processes to better connect with citizens and keep them safe.
All of these challenges have one thing in common: they can benefit from the exponential growth in technology. From cloud to AI to security, the future of every industry rests on the smart application of emerging technology and the expertise to implement business transformation at scale.
In this edition of INDUSTRIOUS we highlight a series of industry perspectives paired with editorial stories that are relatable, relevant, and timely. These stories give context to the forces shaping every industry and the solutions that can position any enterprise to succeed in the modern market.

Content, as a word, gets thrown around a lot. It can mean a company blog, a massive advertising effort, a how-to video, an infographic. But strong content isn’t any one campaign. It’s a story that resonates. A story that can’t be ignored. A story that matters.
The collection in this edition of INDUSTRIOUS is cut from the cloth of the challenges we all face on a daily basis: the demand for instant gratification, a deluge of data, a changing workforce.
It’s my hope that you’ll find these stories to be barometers of the market, a common rallying point—and a source of inspiration for a better future for all.
We can’t wait to see you at Think 2018.
