CI&T Presents Future Ready at SXSW 2020

Press Release


CI&T SXSW Cancellation

In light of the ongoing outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), CI&T has made the difficult decision to withdraw from SXSW this year, cancelling our Future Ready panel series and lounge on March 16.
We take the health and safety of our partners and community members very seriously and feel it is our responsibility to limit the risk of infection and spread of the virus wherever possible, protecting both our local and global communities.
We would like to thank you for your interest in our event and hope to see you next year as we continue to discuss the future of business and technology
Thank you, 
The CI&T Team

For the fourth year running, CI&T is headed back to SXSW on March 16. We have an inspiring lineup of provocative, thought-provoking talks & panels, centered on our SXSW 2020 theme: Future Ready. Digital trailblazers from brands including Mercedes-Benz, Nestlé, and General Motors will share how they're embracing the next wave of digital change to revolutionize organizational management, future-proof business models, deliver next-gen tech for social good, and more.
Why Future Ready?
For many global brands, the 'first wave' of digital transformation is largely complete. They've successfully made the shift to putting data-driven tech at the core of their business strategy. But what's next? For the first time, leading brands are asking that question as they look to the future.
Future Ready focuses on the key challenges and changes required to 'future-proof' organizations for lasting competitive advantage. Implementing the right answers to "What's next?' means staying ahead of the pack for years to come. That’s what our sessions will prepare you for.
Why does ‘future ready’ matter? Here's one example: According to Forrester, not only will disruptive models continue to overturn industries, but over the next few years, 70% of customer engagement will be driven by intelligent digital systems. If you're behind the curve, it's your customers that will feel the pain.

What it means to you…
For 25 years, CI&T has helped global companies drive growth and continuous innovation - cutting across business strategy, people, and technology. Here's a small sample of what we've done…
We worked hand-in-hand with one of the world’s leading beverage companies to create and roll out a new product development process that shortened the average time-to-market from eighteen months to just three.

A new digital services business model we developed for Konica Minolta will add a $500 million revenue stream by 2021.
And for EmbraerX, we developed a new digital platform to significantly reduce worldwide flight delays that were costing a whopping US$ 22 billion across 24 million scheduled flights per year.
So please come ready to participate and learn how to leverage the speed and efficiency of digital technology to create lasting competitive advantage.

The specifics...
Get up to speed on what it means to be Future Ready at one of our sessions. And while you're here, mix with industry leaders and enjoy cutting-edge cocktails, on-the-go bites, a caffeine bar, charging stations, and more in our lounge.
