Digital Transformation: Strategies for Automation, Innovation, and Intelligence

Riyadh, November 26, 2018

Overview

In today's world, digital transformation (DX) has attained a macroeconomic scale and impact, becoming the core of what industry leaders do and how they operate. The DX economy is driven by digital-native enterprises. Born in the digital era, these enterprises are disrupting the traditional models and forms of interactions between the customer and the product or service.

In order to succeed in the DX economy, established enterprises must embrace a "digital native" approach to the way they think and act, transforming their organizations through the establishment of core digital competencies in the areas of leadership, relationships, information, operation, and talent.

The digital battlefield is intensifying, and all industries are being disrupted. So join us at the IDC IT Roadshow 2018 as we equip you with in-depth insights into innovative digital strategies that will help your organization unlock new revenue streams, increase profitability, and revolutionize the customer experience.

Panel Discussion: The CXO Growth Imperative: Innovate, Integrate and Incorporate Technology Chaired by: Hamza Naqshbandi, Country Manager, IDC - Saudi Arabia

Abdelmajed Ahmed Saeed Fadol,
Dr. Zeyad Al Shiakh

Technological change is the biggest, most disruptive force facing today's corporations. But technology isn’t changing only corporations — it's also changing the job of the CXO, bringing with it the challenge of keeping up with technological development. While there are multiple sources of potentially valuable intelligence, CXOs have to be clear about their priorities and also reconsider the composition of their teams, which must reflect the modern age and be on top of new technology and concepts that tap into the voice of customers, communities, and social media in a digital environment. The way CXOs communicate with the organization and other stakeholders is also changing. And while technology provides valuable new communication channels for any business leader, its use does not come without concerns. This session will explore how CXOs can leverage technology to assess and deliver on evolving customer expectations by implementing customer relationship management systems, interpreting complex and evolving needs of customers through data and analytics, and improving communication and engagement with the use of social media.
