These corporate agents of the new digital entertainment empowerment attended HITS to collectively address the issues of hardware and software platforms, network connectivity, big data and data analytics, vendor management, SaaS and BPO, development of resources and global navigations in a day-long, executive program that annually sets the stage for thought leadership among the industry’s information technology leaders.
