O'Reilly Radar 2018

You’re exclusively invited to join us for a complimentary gathering of ideas, insights, inspiration, and practical strategies designed to help business leaders better understand the most pressing challenges of today and tomorrow—then confidently embrace the new opportunities technology will create. It only takes two days to find out what the future holds…and how to get there first.

Innovation and Disruption

Learn how to survive—and thrive—in a business environment driven by constant change, endemic disruption, and flash-in-the-pan fads. Discover the tools, trends, and context necessary for making better decisions about technology, including machine learning, artificial intelligence, and blockchain, and become more discerning about which innovations merit your attention.

Future of the Firm

The legacy factors that affected transaction costs when Coase developed the theory behind his Nobel Prize-winning paper “The Nature of the Firm” in the ‘30s are shifting like never before. Everything from new organizational structures and payment schemes to new expectations, skills, and tools will change the future of the firm, transforming recruitment, retention, and the nature of work itself. Be among the first to find out how it will happen.


Does the infrastructure that supports your digital presence allow for feature agility and testing, the ability to scale exponentially, and the use of optimal technology tools? If not, your competitors’ probably do. See how companies are using the cloud and next-generation architectures to keep up with changing markets and anticipate expectations. This includes shifts from capital to operational expenses, fixed to scalable resources, and more.

Next Economy

Join us as we chart a course from the tech-driven economy of today to the “next” economy that strikes a better balance between people and automation. An economy where market, organizational, and regulatory decisions align with incentives, and are made with the goal of more widespread access to prosperity in mind.

Preparing for the Next Economy

AI, blockchain, on-demand marketplaces, drone delivery, the changing nature of work, hypercompetition from digital platforms, cybersecurity, and new business risks—it’s enough to make a CEO’s head spin. But there is one master rule for success in the Next Economy: don’t use technology to replace people; use it to augment them so they can do things that were previously impossible.

O’Reilly has an 
uncanny knack 
for charting what’s ahead.
