Over the next several decades success will be determined by how well organizations use and innovate with information. This year at Enterprise World we are launching the discussion of the Information Enterprise. What does it mean to be an Information Enterprise? How can we get there? What are our early successes? What are the challenges? We’re structuring the Innovation Track at OpenText Enterprise World as an interactive conversation using Innovation Games. Innovation Games, like war games, are immersive strategy exercises that help us form a big picture view of a complex situation, and make progress even if we lack perfect information.

Enterprise World 2013 takes place in Orlando, Florida from November 17-21... join the conversation on Twitter with @OpenText using #OTEW2013
