http://www.salford.ac.uk/business-school/business-services/centre-for-digital-business The official launch of Salford Business School's Centre for Digital Business focused attention on future trends for Digital Business.
A future, that will be disrupted by innovative and sometimes surprising developments in information technology. These exciting challenges and new business opportunities have to be addressed by business leaders - a concern captured by both futurist Mike Ryan's presentation on the night and by the Centre itself.
The Centre for Digital Business at Salford Business School was launched on 5th June at MediaCityUK (http://www.salford.ac.uk/mediacityuk) in association with the UK Academy for Information Systems (http://www.ukais.org.uk).
It was a great opportunity to meet individual members, network and discover how to collaborate with the Centre. See context of this video here http://www.slideshare.net/salfordbizsch/centre-for-digital-business-salford-business-school-university-of-salford-uk-22562053

The members of the Centre are engaged in a number of local, national and international projects on a number of topics.
This event gave a chance to explore what collaboration schemes there are for you as an organisation to engage with us on research projects, funding opportunities and student innovation projects.
The centre members are building working partnerships, growing our student network and are a point of contact for local organisations needing advice on digital strategies, information management, information security, privacy, digital marketing and much more!
