Digital transformation must be a joint endeavour if it is to be any sort of transformation at all. It has to be a collaboration between the business and IT, with the business owning the processes and IT deciding on the best technological approach. For IT this is both a blessing and a curse. On one hand it puts technologists back in the driving seat making then indispensable to the business. On the other hand, they need to become adept at explaining the changes that technology is bringing.
Take AI for example. Much progress is being made and AI will have a huge impact on all sectors from retail to healthcare, from manufacturing to leisure and entertainment. But how does IT explain the benefits of AI when half the population immediately pictures the Terminator, or fears the termination of their job as an automaton or an algorithm takes its place? How can digital transformation be achieved, unless both sides are speaking the same language?
During this web seminar our expert panel will be looking at ways that the IT team can help steer the business in a time when technologies including AI and the IoT are taking us rapidly into unknown territories.
Key topics we will be discussing:
- Emerging technologies that are changing the face of business and society
- How to adopt them in sustainable way
- Where and how should IT lead the business transformation?
- Communicating technology to the business
- Important skills in the age of digital
