Digital Week: Where is Digitalisation in the C-Suite
Published 7 April 2021
The world has entered a new, unexpected phase of digitalisation, driven by an urgent need for operational innovation. But is this technological transformation outpacing our cultural transformation?
Accenture recently released a report based on an analysis of 2,000 directors from 100 of the world’s largest banks.
The report found that while banks are ramping up their technology investments to keep pace with changing consumer demands, the Boards of these banks lack the technology expertise to minimise the risks and maximise the benefits of their technology investments.
One can replace “banks” with any other industry and the results would more or less be the same. If management guru Peter Drucker would have been alive, he would have surely rephrased his saying: “Technology culture eats strategy for breakfast”.
In South Korea– a global leader in broadband usage and innovation– the government has actively lent its weight behind a nationwide digital push. But does the wide adoption of new technologies that this country sees amongst its population translate to tech-savviness at the C-Suite level?
We’re gathering experts for a dynamic panel discussion on this very topic at our upcoming Digital Week.
Northeast Asia’s Best and Brightest
Digital Week is an opportunity for IT professionals from across Northeast Asia to network with peers, engage with experts, and attend exclusive product demos. From April 20-22, we’re gathering APAC’s best and brightest for a 3-day virtual conference to cover everything from datacenter deployment to digital banking. You can get a chance to network with 1000+ Senior IT leaders from IBM, Rakuten, AWS, Foxconn, HSBC and more.
A power packed panel discussion on “Digitalisation at the C-Suite Level: Optimising Company Culture for a Digital Future”, attempts to answer the many questions and dilemmas faced by the ‘born before the cloud’ companies.
The panel includes Jae Lee from Quincus, a leading tech provider that enables faster and more reliable shipments through supply chain optimisation. Joining Lee would be David Yang from Korea Scoring: a data scientist and an expert on RPA Consulting and Project Management. The panel will also include Josh (Jong-Hyun) Hwang, General Manager for Rescale’s Korea, a cloud management and high-performance computing business. We’re looking forward to hearing what they have to say about the impact that digital fluency in an organisation can have on its future success.
