Digital transformation has become a necessary step for businesses, with 70% of companies either having a strategy in place or working on one.
For our next digital event, we will explore the importance of digital transformation, particularly in a time where industries have been forced to go digital due to the pandemic.
Even before the pandemic, Asia has been leading the way in digital transformation, as businesses have moved to implementing digital tools like artificial intelligence, cloud technology and the Internet of Things to enhance their processes.
The signs of Southeast Asia’s digital transformation are obvious from small enterprises, to its impressive fleet of tech unicorns like Grab, Lazada, Shopee, Agoda, Tokopedia and Shopee.
These advancements, along with increasing Internet traffic and social media usage, are driving a high level of interest from the region’s governments who are implementing various strategies to grow the digital economy.
But despite the growing interest, 70% of digital transformation plans are known to fail in reaching their goals. Why are so many businesses failing and how can we overcome the challenges?
You are invited to join industry experts and peers to explore the benefits of digital transformation and ways of overcoming the challenges on 14 May 2020 from 11am SGT at our next free digital event Digital Transformation – Through Lens of CXOs and SME Business Owners.
