“Identifying opportunities and perils associated with these game-changing market forces is top-of-mind for today’s executive leaders,” said Jan Odegard, Executive Director of the Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology at Rice University about the 2018 forum theme.

Whether addressing cost pressures or expanding market share, many Houston businesses are looking for a competitive edge.
