It’s no secret that emerging technologies promise disruptive change to enterprise communications and collaboration. And enterprise communications professionals understand the stakes: Over half of last year’s EC attendees said their main reason for coming to the show was, “To prepare for new/emerging technologies that will impact my enterprise soon.” But what exactly do the changes mean for you as an IT professional? What technical challenges will you face in your job over the next 3 years, that have been largely absent to date? And what skills can you develop that might open the door to new career possibilities? In this session, we’ll talk with enterprise communications professionals who bring talents and experience to the job that would have seemed unlikely just a few years ago. We’ll discuss which new skills really matter, where the industry hype offers false promise, and what you can do now to better understand the job you have—and the next job you want. You’ll come away from this session with specific ideas and advice offered by your peers as enterprise IT professionals.
