NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Globant (NYSE: GLOB), a digitally native technology services company, today announced the theme, confirmed speakers and programming details for its fifth annual conference, CONVERGE. Taking place at the New York Stock Exchange on November 6, 2019, the focus of this year's conference is "The Future of Augmented Organizations." The event's programming will highlight how companies can reinvent themselves as they integrate AI capabilities into their processes and business model. Speakers will discuss how next-generation technology will help organizations scale to drive efficiency, reach and innovation.
"As the digital and cognitive revolutions change the landscape of our world, it's crucial to rethink how organizations must reinvent themselves. By building augmented organizations, companies can embrace the power of artificial intelligence to increase their capabilities and reinvent their industries," said Martín Migoya, CEO and co-founder of Globant. "Organizations need to go through a full-on transformation to enhance their business models, internal experiences, and processes. During CONVERGE, we will discuss this approach and what is needed to create digital transformation initiatives that yield concrete results for businesses."
Headlining the event will be Seth Godin, author of 19 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages. He's also the founder of the altMBA and The Marketing Seminar. Godin will help attendees understand how each person can (and must) step up and define their future as technology keeps moving more quickly, yet too often, leadership falls behind.
