Digital Solutions Gallery

“The Future Of Technology In 2025”


The current coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) has affected us all. The Ohio State University and its Digital Solutions Gallery™ series remain committed to the health and well-being of our entire community, and have now taken steps to reduce any potential virus-related risk to all parties affiliated with our programs.

Please note the dates for the program series sessions in 2021.

Futurists are VERY certain that very few historians will label 2020 as a “Great Year.” Pathologically, the-cloud-has-a-silver-lining, glass-is-always-half-full optimists are not incorrect in observing that 2020 could be interpreted as a “good year” for the IT and business digital leaders. "Good" in the sense that many organizations did step up in 2020 to successfully lead wholesale transitions to remote work/Work-From-Home [WFH], accelerate innovation and cut through organizational silos and bureaucracy to be more responsive to consumer needs.

Digital transformation has accelerated greatly, but vision has compressed too much towards the immediate short-term. To move beyond continuing to play the "COVID-Whack-a-Mole" response and become more proactive in defining a compelling and differentiating digital future for their customers and employees, digital leaders must plan a Gateway to 2025.
During 2021, the "Digital Solutions Gallery™" will examine what needs to be done to make sure 2025 is a “Great Year” and the road towards it is paved with meaningful progress and sustainable successes.  We will look at the future of strategy and strategy-making, healthcare, energy/power, security/privacy, work, technology and leadership.

Participants will virtually engage with noted thought-leaders and successful peer executives to gain a better appreciation of not only what is coming, but also just how its value might be captured and applied. 

These programs will be held as one-hour virtual events that were so impactful in 2020, showcasing top thought-leaders addressing issues and strategies now affecting us all (the “Digital Solutions Gallery Virtual Keynote Series”).

Please plan to join us for this widely acclaimed unique and distinctive forum where senior leaders of all types come together to collectively learn from noted thought leaders, share their related experiences and insights, as well as collaboratively work together to attack common issues within this crucial agenda.
