We are seeking TSIA World speakers to deliver a compelling presentation supporting the topics and accompanying business challenges and opportunities below.

Success Through Data Science and AI  (Complete Lifecycle)

Today's technology and services organizations find that investing in data science improves consumption and adoption of their offerings leading to more successful customer engagements. Data science is leveraged to provide objective insights based on scientific algorithms that take the guesswork out of who your customers are, their propensity to purchase, the patterns in their business challenges, and the offerings best suited for their needs. The ultimate goal of data science is to generate insights through automated, intelligent analysis of large amounts of data from various systems enabling providers to be more prescriptive with the right solution, proactive with the right service, and predictive of customer needs - present and future.

The Future of Monetizing Services in Complete Offerings

For over two decades, the technology industry has evolved from technology as an asset to technology as a service. However, many XaaS value propositions are still focused on feature differentiation and the underlying scalability of the platform. As a result, many technology and service providers are undervaluing the services aspects of the "complete" offer. Many providers are either not charging for, or are undercharging for components of the offer such as professional services, support services, operate (managed) services, and analytics insights. The complete offer is the right combination of technology and services required to deliver the solution's intended value, resulting in the customer achieving their desired business outcomes.

The Future of Cross-Functional Revenue Orchestration

For far too long, revenue generation has happened in silos across multiple organizations such as Sales, Consulting, Customer Success, Renewals teams, and Channel Partners. For technology companies to thrive with profitable growth, leaders must move from Sales Operations to Revenue Operations. This requires teams to break down the barriers by leveraging data and applying the practices that allow organizations to analyze customer needs, prescribe the right solution, and drive the right adoption leading to frictionless expansion and renewals. Data-driven organization collaboration empowers all individuals across the revenue spectrum to “sell for success” across the entire customer lifecycle.

Scaling Digital Experiences (Customer and Operations)

Embracing digital experiences across the end-to-end customer journey is critical to provide an exceptional customer experience and scale operations without continually adding sales and service staff. Each step along the customer lifecycle, from sales to onboarding and training, technical support, renewals, and expand selling, all have opportunities for automation.

Cultural Transformation

In the competitive tech industry, companies must offer a strong corporate culture to attract and retain the best and brightest employees. During transformation, a focus on culture is especially important to build support for transformation and help employees--and customers--learn to thrive on change. In today's world, companies are increasingly competing for attention on a global scale. A strong corporate culture can help differentiate a company from its competitors and create a positive image that resonates with customers and employees.
