Thought leaders series

Join us at our Thought Leaders Series Webinar: Business Resilience and Technology. Presented by Ruma Balasubramanian, Formerly Chief Transformation Officer Asia Pacific, Japan & China (APJC) Cisco.

As digital transformation has taken on a new meaning during the COVID-19 global crisis. We have seen across industry sectors that companies are leveraging technology to future-proof their organisations and to ensure that their business is able to handle the challenges of an overnight Work from Home employee base.

 

IT is at the heart of every company’s business resilience imperative, but its role has evolved, from helping a company run better and faster, to ultimately transforming its overall business strategy. Equally important is technology’s contribution to the customer and employee experience.
