Vision 2020

By 2020, we will all live in a connected economy. According to Gartner, 75% of all global businesses will have in-depth digital transformations underway, largely involving channel transformation and integration - but - only 30% will be successful. Most companies are unprepared for the future.

Bill Nuti has transformed NCR to help businesses address these challenges. As experts in digital transformation, channel integration and transformation, and the overall omni-channel movement, learn how NCR is helping increase the odds of success for businesses across multiple industries and around the globe.

Bill is highly respected for his leadership skills and acclaimed for his vision and expertise in transforming and reinventing companies for sustainable and profitable growth. Since joining NCR in 2005, Bill orchestrated one of the most successful business reinventions in recent history, while transforming the way consumers connect, interact and transact with business. With over a century of legacy and culture at its back, Bill made critical decisions to reinvent NCR over the long term, including shifting the core business model of NCR from hardware to more software and SaaS, acquiring several high-growth companies, and expanding into new markets, adjacencies and underpenetrated emerging geographies.

As the architect of NCR's visionary strategy to lead the omni-channel revolution, Bill is driving strategic investments in mobile, cloud, big data, and the Internet of Things in order to provide solutions that help today's enterprises respond to disruptive changes in globalization, digitization, consumerism, and technology. NCR enables nearly 700 million transactions per day and is a market-leader across all industries they serve.

Bill's vision to build a best-in-class global organization has not gone unnoticed. He has been heralded by government officials and news organizations for creating STEM jobs across the globe and is currently in the process of creating a world-class corporate headquarters and innovation hub that is becoming the Silicon Valley of the east. Throughout his tenure, NCR has been recognized for its humanitarian contributions with the Red Cross Good Neighbor Award and its commitment to employee training and development with the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) BEST Award. And in 2016 Forbes Magazine named NCR one of America's Best Employers.

Prior to joining NCR as CEO in 2005, Bill served as president and CEO of Symbol Technologies. He led a challenging and highly successful turnaround of Symbol, returning the company to profitability for the first time in five years, and increasing revenue growth by 24% from 2002 to 2004. In 2005, he was recognized as the "Best Turnaround Executive" by the American Business Awards. Bill joined Symbol following more than 10 years at Cisco Systems.

Bill is a frequent speaker at high-profile business and technology events. He also is an established enterprise and business policy leader in Washington, D.C., where he founded a CEO policy forum on tax reform and competitiveness. He also spoke at the White House Forum on "Strategy for American Innovation."

Bill is a member of the Georgia Institute of Technology advisory board, a Long Island University trustee and serves on the board of directors for United Continental Holdings and Coach, Inc. In 2015, he was named Atlanta Business Chronicle's Most Admired CEO.

Omni-channel is becoming a horizontal opportunity across all industries, in every geography, and for all tiers of customers - including small business. As a pioneer in the channel integration and transformation space - both physical and digital - NCR is helping businesses evolve their legacy processes and effectively engage digital consumers at every touchpoint in the consumer journey. - Bill Nuti
