Nearly 90% of executives believe that digital will disrupt their business in the next 12 months. To prosper in this highly competitive environment, senior IT professionals must think strategically about every part of their organisation and embrace the new digital reality.
With this in mind, in partnership with Insight, Inspired Business Media is hosting an exclusive half-day conference for the CIO and technology leadership community. This interactive forum will highlight some key ways that IT leaders can transform their organisations to become an agent of change in the current digital climate.
Several notable industry figures will delve into their own experiences and challenges around digital transformation. Not only will they share examples around the creation of revenue streams, but they will also cover how digital processes have optimised their organisational performance.
