    Its an amazing topic Ashutosh , as it has potential to trigger the thoughts around business agility .

    However ,i am very sure there would be another group of audience in your conference who could argue about the change of technology role from enabler to driver. The new technology landscape is driving the business use cases ex. take AWS Alexa and now everyone is planning to build voice interface. Many features are coming in products which we never thought of using AI/ML and Data Science. You may think , to include some highlights and your thoughts around this transition.

    So its really interesting and exiting topic to talk and discuss about. Good Luck. Regards Jay Tripathi
