/ ,evәˈlo͞oSHәn / The natural progression through customer adoption of technology.

On behalf of David Neitz, CIO of CDM Smith, I’d like to invite you to join us for lunch and a discussion on IT Transformation at Harvard’s Loeb House this Thursday, March 19.

With enterprises operating increasingly interconnected and on-demand business models, the risk of extinction has never been greater for IT managers saddled with legacy IT delivery models.

Exponential technologies are driving a revolutionary rate of change that is projected to force as much as 40% of the Fortune 500 into extinction over the next 10 years. – Peter Diamandis

Peter Diamandis, founder of the XPrize and named one of “The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” by Fortune Magazine in 2014, recently released a new book, BOLD, which discusses the disruptive power of exponential technologies to the next generation of business.

In BOLD, Diamandis and Kotler have written another dazzler, a riveting look inside the world of exponential entrepreneurship—action-packed and action-oriented. I’ve purchased a copy for my entire team at Cisco.  – Padmasree Warrior, CTO & Chief Strategy Officer, Cisco

At Evolution Boston you’ll see why two of these forces, what Diamandis calls dematerialization and demonitization, are conspiring to drive legacy IT delivery models built on large data centers and big carrier MPLS networks to extinction.

You’ll hear how visionary IT leaders like David Neitz, CIO at CDM Smith are deploying agile, high performance virtual global data centers to exponentially improve application performance, while reducing operating costs. You’ll also have an opportunity to share your own BOLD story of IT Evolution.

Please join CFN Services, Equinix, and CDM Smith along with fellow Boston-area IT leaders for a networking discussion on how IT evolution can transform our organizations, keeping us at the forefront of technology, and driving the next generation of agile, global business operations.
