Overview

How many of you wonder how the internet actually works? How many of you wonder what the internet actually is? How many of you wonder how a computer is actually able to do the things that it can do?

Technology is disrupting every single industry from brick and mortar retail to metals and mining and is becoming a critical driver of competitive advantage creation. Companies who adapt and innovate will sustain while others that choose to not or adapt too slowly will die. It is critical that business and finance professionals have a solid understanding of how today's key technologies work so that they can have more meaningful conversations with their technical teams.

This course is not a programming-based course and instead covers what today's relevant technologies are and how they work. Attendees will leave with a deep understanding of the "what" and "how". Armed with this knowledge, they can approach traditional business and finance problems with a technological eye and create and sustain competitive advantages.

A computer is not necessary for the training although it can be used to access workshop slides
