LONDON, May 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategies and tactics for turning digital disruption into business opportunity will be the focus of the third annual ISG Digital Business Summit EMEA, hosted by leading global technology research and advisory firm Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), at the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel in London, June 25–26.
The ISG Digital Business Summit EMEA is part of ISG's premier annual strategic event series tailored for C-level executives. The London event brings together senior digital business strategists and technology leaders to explore themes of customer experience, future workforce, data-driven innovation, business agility, the digital backbone and the power of emerging technologies. The event will predict the digital future of business with thought-provoking sessions, hands-on technology demonstrations in the ISG Innovation Labs, business pitches from entrepreneurs competing in the ISG Startup Challenge, and six "miniconferences" that allow deeper exploration of key topics.
"ISG research shows that 87 percent of companies believe digital transformation presents a competitive opportunity, while 85 percent of enterprise decision-makers feel they must act within two years or risk falling behind the competition," said Barry Matthews, ISG partner and host of the event.

Matthews will open the summit with his "5x5x5" predictions, based on ISG data and insights, on which five industries will be most impacted by which five digital technologies over the next five years. Renowned author and entrepreneur Steven Van Belleghem will deliver the keynote address, "Customers the Day After Tomorrow." An expert on the future of customer centricity, Van Belleghem will demonstrate how the most successful businesses transform customer relationships and retention by focusing on digital transformation today, tomorrow, and beyond, and will sign copies of his new book, The Day After Tomorrow.
