conference overview
Do we yet understand what works, and what doesn't, in the digital economy? Though technology-driven business models have ridden the highs and lows of the equity markets in the past couple of years, and financial expectations are adjusting to the experience of real numbers instead of the optimism of business plans, we are still in the early stages of the e-business transformation. As organizations reassess their business models, resiliency and survivability options now come into play.

Overlaying new security and contingency planning requirements onto existing models may render some unworkable, unprofitable, and even obsolete. The big question is "what are the lessons for business and government alike?" High-payoff elements of the electronic business model may not be evident on a web site, but behind the scenes instead, in the infrastructure or supply chain relationships. In other words, it's a holistic view of what creates strategic advantage and profitability for the business.

The successful organizations will be those that are able to continually re-define themselves in order to create customer and shareholder value as the world of digital commerce evolves. During this meeting, we'll look at the lessons from recent successes and failures and the impact of a wartime government on business.
