Beverly Hills, CA – February 5, 2018 – On March 20th, UNICOM Technology Park I & II in Chantilly Virginia will serve host to the 2018 UNICOM Global Digital Transformation Symposium. We invite you to join us for productive discussions with a select group of industry-leading business executives and technology experts. Gain valuable insight into emerging technologies, and share perspectives on their practical application to achieve business objectives.

According to IDC, more than 70% of CIOs see their role is shifting from that of an operational officer to Digital Transformation officer/agent of innovation. More than 50% of CIOs will increase their IT budgets this year to reflect the need for Digital Transformation spending. Digital Transformation offers companies the opportunity to fundamentally change the way they interact with and serve customers. Mr. Jean-Laurent Bonnafé, CEO of BNP Paribas, is on a mission to build what he calls “the bank of the future”. The bank announced that it would double its investment in technology over the next three years to $3.35 billion to deliver three main goals: Digital Transformation, New Customer Experiences, and Efficiency Savings.

On September 30, 2017, UNICOM signed a definitive agreement with IBM Corp. to be an early recipient of the IBM z14 mainframe, now installed at UNICOM Technology Park I & II Innovation and R&D Labs in Chantilly, Virginia. This will serve as a hub for the best and brightest of today’s technology visionaries to create and develop in a collaborative environment. In conjunction with these developments in Virginia, UNICOM has created the Technology Intern Partnership ("TIP"). This program provides a gateway for young entrepreneurs to gain exposure to the latest in technology. The idea of guiding young entrepreneurs is an integral part of UNICOM’s commitment to changing the way we view technology, for years to come.
