A winner in the Customer Engagement category of the 17th Annual American Business Awards, the 2019 innovation Summit was held at the 1 Hotel in Miami March 27-29.
More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

According to IDC’s Shawn Fitzgerald, “digitally determined companies , those succeeding at digital transformation (DX), demonstrate three key attributes; a unified, enterprise digital business strategy; a single roadmap for implementing digital technologies and business capabilities; and the need for a digital platform for enabling digital with speed, scale, and agility. Digital transformation is both a long-game and a team sport so having a strategy along with planning horizons, combined with strategic partners like MetTel, enables critical parts of the technology roadmap and are central for realizing competitively differentiated DX outcomes.”
