Agility has emerged as an organizational superpower as businesses grapple with change and uncertainty in their own customer bases and in the global political and economic landscape.

• The digital gold rush
• The great workload dilemma
• Cloud – migrations and mistakes?
• Data: taking back control in uncertain times.
