The Evolution of Consumerization Think Tank was a part of the Dell Technology Camp 2012 held in London on May 31,2012.

We facilitated this real-time / Live Streamed discussion with a group of high profile industry experts around the Evolution of Consumerization, including topics from the Evolving Workforce study. The 10 Think Tank participants included:

  • Steve O’Donnell, (Chairperson) Consultant and former BT Head of Operations
  • PJ Dwyer, Executive Director, End User Computing, Dell
  • Bryan Jones, Executive Director, Public Large Enterprise Medium Business, Dell
  • Tim Weber, Business Editor, BBC Online
  • Mark Wilson, IT Blogger
  • Stephen Yap, Group Director, TNS
  • Alexis Lane, Partner and employment law specialist, The Head Partnership
  • Stuart Collingwood, President EMEA, Nivio
  • Mathias Knoefel, analyst, CONTEXT
  • Marie-Christine Pygott, analyst, CONTEXT

The overall discussion considered how new generations continuing to flow into the workforce coupled with the rapid development of technology is affecting significant change in IT infrastructures, cultures, processes and workplace environments. The ability to recognize and harness the changes and developments in an effective, controlled and secure way is a growing challenge for businesses.

A wide virtual audience was engaged during the debate with Tweeted questions and comments shared during the discussing using the event and #workforce hashtags. The Live Cast of the full debate is online and available to watch on the Tech Camp 2012 website here: The Evolving Workforce Think Tank.

“I would categorise it as being the single most germane and well structured session of its kind I have seen. I would not be surprised if it were to win some awards and would strongly recommend that you pursue this. I know that I speak for the whole panel in thanking you all for your input and hard work in bringing this off.” - Stephen O’Donnell
