About this session:
The Internet-of-Things, wearable fitness devices, crowdfunding, robo-investment advisors, 3D printing … business executives in many industries are currently being inundated with a confusingly and exhaustingly broad range of technological developments that enable new business models. In this presentation, Christian and Nicolaj will show how companies are fundamentally changing the way they connect with their customers and other players in their ecosystem through new technologies. Savvy firms are shifting from occasional, episodic interactions -- where customers realize they have an unmet need and then look for ways to fill it -- to staying continuously connected to their customers, providing services and products even before customers become aware that these needs have arisen.
