Equipped to Compete: Tech-Powered SMEs
September 18, 2013
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: SMEs. A recent Oxford Economics study of 2,100 small to mid-size enterprises in 21 countries found that those leveraging technology to boost innovation, strengthen customer relationships, improve agility and expand business, are able to compete effectively against multinationals. How? The experts speak. Steve Freeman, Decision First Technologies: “To achieve an agile and competitive enterprise, SMEs require the individual within flatter organizations to make better, more timely decisions. This reality places self-service information access at the core of a successful SME’s information strategy.” Edward Cone, Oxford Economics: “Live in fragments no longer. Only connect...” (E.M. Forster, Howards End) Kevin Gilroy, SAP: “Technology and innovations are the competitive equalizers for SMEs anywhere. An SME can ‘look' as competitive as a large company, present themselves anywhere, and compete globally with rivals of any size.” Join us for Equipped to Compete: Tech-Powered SMEs.
