Digital Transformation: Strategies for Automation, Innovation, and Intelligence

Manama, December 11, 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 Forum 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.
