Putting digital transformation at the forefront of innovation
“90% of CEOs believe the digital economy will impact their industry, but less than 15% are executing a digital strategy” – MIT Sloan and Capgemini
New Zealand’s premier digital summit, DX 2019, was held on the 14th of March at the SKYCITY Convention Centre.
DX 2019 put digital transformation at the forefront of innovation. The best applications of digital transformation occur when the transformation is led and supported organisation wide and not just spearheaded by the IT department.
The Summit showcased excellent speakers and organisations that are at the leading edge of transformation. The keynotes, Tom Cochran and Leigh Smyth provided phenomenal sessions on digital transformation at the Obama Administration and responsible transformation at Lloyd’s Banking Group respectively.
“We must embrace the rapidly changing environment of the digital era, organisations should be considering digital as an integral part of business strategy; customers expect it, employees expect it, and it will accelerate your competitive advantage. Ensuring alignment between a company’s digital and its corporate strategy appears to be one of the key factors differentiating winners and losers - a useful reminder that leading a digital transformation is not a technology led strategy as almost all cases we see the technology is doable, and business models are available – the single biggest challenge is people AND organisation change.” – Lauren Salisbury, GM Digital and Innovation, Coda; Chair of the Summit
