Albeit a buzzword in business- with its all encompassing nature, the concept of digital transformation is one that is not wholly understood – proving to be both a great opportunity as well as a major challenge for businesses. In order to adapt and innovate in the ever changing technology landscape it is imperative that organisations adopt digital initiatives that are positioned in line with their company culture and customer needs.

The 2nd Digital Transformation Congress is one of the most comprehensive technology events of 2019, where hundreds of senior executives will meet to advance their knowledge of the latest business technologies and digital innovations such as AI, IoT, blockchain, IT security, 5G and robotics, and how they impact business operations. The congress will also outline ways that businesses can use technology to gain the edge over competitors.

  • Preparing your workforce for the digital age
  • Discovering what digital transformation maturity is and highlighting its benefits
  • Exploring the business impact of AI
  • Using cloud as a digital transformation tool
  • Digitally transforming the manufacturing industry
  • Digital opportunities in the transportation and logistics sector
