Theme: The Digital Transformation
Today organizations are powering through the complex maze of changing modes of business transactions and change in consumer behaviour; organizations are coping with these changes through adoption of digitized means, through letting digitization transform their processes and making it more efficient and at par with the current trends. With the rise in popularity and usage of analytics, mobility, social media and smart embedded devices, the digital transformation journey is underway for many organizations.
There is a surge of digital reinvention across companies pan India. With the phenomenon of demonitisation and cashless economy, the Government and corporates are moving towards new avenues, thus disruptively transforming themselves. The Government is taking measures to promote digitized transactions and enabling individuals to embrace the digital sphere in its totality. This digital disruption is thus an opportunity for companies to reimagine their processes and offerings.
The Digital Transformation story in the Eastern part of the world is still in the making, with vast majority of the population now thriving in the digital sphere and embracing new modes of digitized functioning. Eastern part of the world is moving ahead in leaps and bounds when it comes to digitizing processes. With startups focusing on the digital age and coming up with digital solutions to needs and demands and existing companies taking the plunge to reengineer processes, even individuals have adapted to the digital way of life, with increase in cashless transactions, online transactions and digital investments. Thus keeping the current trend in mind we have chosen the theme- ‘The Digital Transformation', for the 16th edition of INFOCOM.
INFOCOM 2017 will witness deliberations and debates from leaders with respect to real time cases of digital transformation. The conference is designed to elaborate on key issues of handling digital transformation in businesses, explore new opportunities that lie ahead, develop efficient and better products and services in the digital age and build on a growth path in a thriving competitive environment.
