International Keynote: Breaking the digital deadlock

By 2022, IDC forecasts that 80% of enterprise revenue growth will depend directly on digital offerings and operations. While some digital projects have been implemented and are progressing, most companies report they are still struggling to digitally transform their broader organisation. Joseph’s presentation will look beyond the widely identified impediments of culture, processes and resources and address these key questions.
  • As the transition to digital business accelerates, what technology management challenges will confront the enterprise, and what is IT’s role in resolving them?
  • How will enterprise organisation “digital business” structures evolve?
  • What is the enterprise implementation rate for new technologies such as AI/Cognitive, Robotics, Blockchain, Drones and AR/VR?

International Keynote: Digital change at a 150 year old iconic institution

Founded in 1870, by most measures The Met is a traditional institution: its mission and business model has remained relatively stable throughout its 150 year history. In a digital age, where knowledge, creativity and ideas are freely and rapidly shared online, there is a need for the institution to re-think aspects of that model in order to reach and retain relevance with audiences.
This talk will look at what it takes for an institution like The Met to successfully navigate the digitization of parts of its business model, and of the importance of marrying short term goals with longer term sustainability.
