Unraveling the DNA of Digital Transformation


As more emerging technologies like artificial intelligence are being developed for industrial applications, companies are finding that they have two choices–transform themselves to win or drop out of the race. Digital transformation is no small feat. It’s a complicated process that involves upheaval and commitment to change. In the case of heavy industries such as oil & gas or utilities, well-established companies find it to be even more daunting. However, digital transformation is not optional for a company that wishes to survive, and the benefits of it are significant. This panel of experts will discuss the common pitfalls and the game-changing results that come with a digital transformation strategy, as well as steps companies can take to begin their own digital transformation.
