In this era, where technology leaders are expected to operate their existing business as efficiently as possible, it is a norm to come up with newer digital business models. In this, the business stakeholders expect seamless support, speed and agility from their organisation’s technology function across all its parallel activities.
Dimension Data Uganda – a leader in design, optimization, and management of today’s evolving technology environments – in partnership with their global partner Cisco, are embarking on hosting the very first Digital Business Day Forum in a bid to showcase the latest solutions that enable businesses to fast track their digital transformation journey.
The event, scheduled to take place on the 29th of March 2018 at the Golden Tulip Hotel, will bring together business executives and technology leaders to explore how organisations are transforming to meet the changing demands across industries and their clients. It is anticipated to be a dedicated discovery session focused around the digital transformation agenda led by subject matter experts who will share insights, lessons learned on how to use advances in technology to accelerate this transformation while balancing the need to maintain a stable and profitable business.
In a statement issued to our desk on the event, it is indicated that topics to be covered covered include: Digital Infrastructure, Hybrid Cloud, Cybersecurity for the digital age, Digital Workspaces and Service delivery in digital business.
Digital disruption within an industry may be driven by new entrants, but incumbents also recognise the urgency of acting decisively to pursue their own digital reinvention – redefining their businesses, transferring their core competencies to new areas, and acting boldly. The question is no longer whether businesses should be transforming digitally, but rather how quickly this transformation can be achieved. Gartner predicts that by 2021, 80% of traditional companies will have lost 10% of their market share because of disruptive competition or the inability to disrupt themselves.
“We’ve assembled these leaders, who are only in Kampala for a limited time, to appear exclusively on our Business Day panel. They will share advice, insights, lessons learned and how they’re using advances in technology to accelerate this transformation while balancing the need to transform with the demand to maintain a stable and profitable business,” concluded the statement.
