Executive Breakfast - Accelerating Digital Transformation: Innovation - People - Processes

Hilton Cyprus, 8:30am, November 27, 2018


While organizations are running digital projects and making progress, many of them are not digitally transforming their overall businesses. Outdated KPIs, siloed organizational structures, barriers to innovation, and limited expertise are inhibiting the progress of digital transformation and waylaying potential investments. Despite technology being the driver behind DX, people, processes, and culture are the true agents of change. In this event, leading IT experts will discuss how to remove obstacles to digital transformation and formulate essential requirements for rebuilding the IT organization and managing software development lifecycles. DX-enabling technologies such as cloud, DevOps, and microservices will be topics of specific focus.

Join IDC, INTEL, ZEBRA Consultants, Red Hat and Microsoft for this exclusive Executive Breakfast and find out as well as get the chance to win a Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch!

Kindly note that participation in the event is free of charge, however online registration is mandatory.

How to Break Through Digital Deadlock

Jozef Gemela
Vice President, Consulting, CEMA

Modern enterprises are striving to make the transformation to becoming digital natives – i.e., where disruptive innovation is “business as usual”. However, IDC research shows that many organizations that have embarked on the digital transformation journey get stuck and are unable to progress to the next level. In this presentation, we will describe the challenge of "digital deadlock" and provide a set of recommendations for unlocking the full potential of digital transformation by addressing non-tech factors such as innovation, people, and processes.
