Whereas most Retailers have already made the leap to a digital paradigm, Grocery has lagged behind. And now, as major digital players jump into the fray (Amazon, Whole Foods,) it’s now officially ‘game on’ for the industry at large.
In this lively roundtable discussion, experts from Earley Information Science, Lidi UK, and Tyson Foods discuss the ever-changing digital landscape in Grocery, and identify key areas where differentiation can mean prosper or perish. You will learn:
•The confluence of trends, new players and events fueling this revolution
•How customer journey “shopping modes” are critically different in grocery
•How to provide customized digital experiences based on customer shopping mode (Commodity, Quick Eats, Meal Planning)
•Creative digital and in-store product merchandizing through in-depth understanding of your assortment, partners, region, and customers
•How to shift from stocking-centric to customer-centric in category management, “ways to shop” and new concierge “ways to serve”
The phrase ‘Digital Transformation’ has been increasingly used throughout the industry as a strategic goal organizations want to achieve. This initiative implies that Digital Transformation has an endpoint, a stage where companies will be ‘transformed’ - however this certainly isn’t the case.
Join Kerry Dawes, Head of Digital Experience & Intel at The Rank Group from her main stage presentation at Digital Velocity New York as she discusses:
- 3 main drivers of digital transformation
- Key ways to think of digital transformation as a longterm campaign rather than a one-time project
- Common challenges most brands face around digital transformation and ways to solve them
- How centralized and real-time decision making helps drive digital transformation
Too many aspiring digital businesses just aren’t set up correctly for digital transformation. They’re organised in silos around traditional functions instead of having a flexible network of teams that work on transforming key business processes.
The focus of many digital transformation efforts to date has been on the adoption of new technologies. But without first doing some organisational redesign, this has been like forcing a square peg into a round hole.
Join Scott Gibson, Group Executive, Digital Business Solutions at Dimension Data, as he chats through what a successful organisational restructure looks like, along with the technologies and strategies that will accelerate a company’s digital transformation journey next year and beyond. He will discuss:
•How organisations can redesign their core business processes around the customer experience.
•How the Internet of Things (IoT) is starting to deliver ROI.
•Why ready-made platforms are accelerating digital transformation.
•How digital leaders should look at data through a new lens.
2019 is going to be the year when companies make wholesale changes to how they engage and empower their employees, with behavioural analytics – powered by AI and machine learning – playing a significant role in making the digital workplace smarter than ever before.
Join Alex Bennett, Group SVP Go-to-Market, CX and Digital Workplace at Dimension Data, as he chats about the four major digital workplace trends in 2019 that will help improve the user experience and streamline business processes. He will discuss:
•How enterprises can use behavioural analytics – fuelled by AI and machine learning – to engage and empower their people.
•Why applications are getting more intelligent and how to capitalise on their potential.
•How a holistic approach to the digital workplace enriches culture, drives inclusion and reduces cost.
•Why data authenticity is finally climbing up the corporate agenda.
People in organisations are talking about digital. Of particular interest, is how organisations are understanding its application to their business and how digital spans every aspect of the organisation.
Is digital being seen as the success story that everyone expects it to be? Are benefits actually being delivered and do leaders know where the value lies?
During this Webinar, our presenters will share the thinking of global leaders around digital and more specifically the top challenges, best practices, and insights garnered from Dimension Data’s ‘Digital Means Business’ research report. Looking not only at how organisations are making sense of digital, but how they are mobilising the organisation for sustainable digital transformation. Digital applied effectively and diligently – can help organisations emerge as leaders in the digital age, but there are still many challenges to overcome.
Every business is impacted by global digital disruption.
Even the most successful and iconic 20th century businesses must transform to remain relevant and retain their leadership in the 21st.
Tech-savvy start-ups with natively digital business models regard this point in time as the best time in the history of the world to invent something.
The world is buzzing with technology-driven opportunities leveraging the solid platform provided over the past 30 years, birthed from the Internet, then mobility, social
and now the massive scale of cloud computing and the Internet of Things.
Join this webinar to learn how your business can leverage the opportunities of digital disruption.
