How to Drive Product Innovation with Emerging Technologies by Daniel Elizalde

RSVPing "yes" on Meetup will NOT reserve you a spot at this event. You must purchase your ticket for this event on Eventbrite: https://emergingtech.eventbrite.com The previous decade saw incredible advances in technology. Cloud computing, smartphones, and broadband connectivity are a few examples of technologies that started just a few years ago yet are now part of the standard toolset we use to build our products today. This new decade will see even faster innovation, fueled by the widespread adoption of emerging technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Edge Computing, and 5G. As product managers, it’s time to stop talking about “the future” and start focusing on the next generation of innovations we can build today. In this talk, Ericsson VP Daniel Elizalde will share practical insights on what it takes to build commercial solutions using these cutting-edge technologies. You will learn useful principles that go beyond the technology itself and give you a holistic perspective on what it takes to succeed in the era of IoT, 5G, and AI. In addition to discussing how to create customer value with emerging technologies, Daniel will also discuss the challenges product managers face when incorporating these technologies in their roadmap in both startups and large corporations. After Daniel's talk, Dan Olsen will interview him in a fireside chat and then Daniel will answer questions from attendees. Join us for an informative and engaging session!
