FT/RSG Intelligent Business Forum

San Francisco |

Overview

Professional services are changing. Just as the lines between industry sectors are blurring, so are professional disciplines. Advisers, technology companies and new entrants are seeking to win the market for the enterprise-wide operational challenges that business are facing. While some law firms are also looking at these critical issues, few have the technology, processes and expertise to answer them at scale.

The FT/RSG Intelligent Business Forum and Awards will bring together C-suite representatives from companies who are leading in their digital transformations and the new legal businesses, including technology companies and professional services firms who are helping them get there faster. The one-day forum will highlight what major companies want and how their needs for integrated business solutions are rapidly evolving and the solution-providers who are making the most impact.

The programme will consist of a special FT report, rankings and awards and a one day forum.

    Two of the industry sectors which should provide fertile ground to test the convergence of data and new technologies is the insurance and public sectors.

    Business Operations: Supply Chains, Cyber and Privacy

    The convergence of legal, tech, data and other professional service disciplines is changing the way business approaches the challenges of cyber, privacy and supply chains. The impacts are significant and can obviate risk, protect and enhance reputation and ultimately contribute to the bottom line.
