Gartner is the world's leading information technology research and advisory company and they describe the “nexus of forces” as the convergence and mutual reinforcement of four interdependent trends: social interaction, mobility, cloud, and information. The forces combine to empower individuals as they interact with each other and their information through well-designed ubiquitous technology.

CEMEX was mentioned during the opening keynote when Mary Mesaglio, Research Vice President with Gartner's CIO research team, talked about the need to achieve new missions and to imagine new possibilities through the development of a “nexus of forces”. Mesaglio spoke specifically about Shift, CEMEX’s internal social networking platform.

By building a collaboration platform accessible to employees throughout the company and around the world, CEMEX is empowering employees in new and important ways that go beyond traditional titles and roles. With Shift, CEMEX creates a global platform for a global company and a global workforce. When the promise is collaboration, the benefit for employees is greater satisfaction in the work they do and the value they provide.

Furthermore, a real-life example of how CEMEX has used the "nexus of forces" its operations was given. The company achieved gains in energy efficiency thanks to best practice sharing facilitated by its social network platform, Shift. Through this collaboration platform, an expert in energy from CEMEX’s German operations shared an idea with the entire company. This idea became one of the company’s best practices and was spread globally, thereby helping the company reach its ambitious goals in energy efficiency.
