Now in its 17th year, BizTech@Wharton is a premier industry conference representing the latest thinking on the business of technology. Every year, hundreds of professionals from the industry’s most innovative and influential technology firms get up to date on leading strategies and business models through engaging sessions and networking opportunities.
BizTech@Wharton surveys this momentous year in business technology and provides thought leadership on the path forward for mobile monetization, the fight for share of usership across devices, the latest rush for new models of eCommerce, and many others.
The industry’s latest developments challenge business strategies of the past. Facebook IPO’ed but is stymied by the nagging question of mobile monetization. The Windows 8 debut bids to retain cross-device OS dominance while Apple leads innovation with sleeker and ever-more-ubiquitous gadgets. Groupon tried to keep hot in the race for local market share as eBay reinvented itself and Amazon defended its turf. Meanwhile, startups like Luminosity and foursquare are keeping everyone on their toes as the industry still tries to figure out what virtualization, cloud computing and big data mean for their business models.
The 2012 BizTech@Wharton Conference promises to unravel what these and other developments mean for tech executives seeking to constantly innovate and reinvent their businesses.
BizTech@Wharton Conference is excited to host the finalist presentations for Wharton Technology Club’s first annual Tech Case Competition.
Sponsored by Microsoft, this inaugural case competition will challenge student teams to explore one of Microsoft’s pressing business issues that they are facing today and to build creative strategies for tackling the challenge. After a live Q&A session with Microsoft executives, students will have 72 hours to draft recommendations. Selected finalists will be invited to present their proposal to Microsoft representatives during the BizTech@Wharton Conference, where winners will be announced and awarded cash prizes, Xboxes, and other prize packs.
