Organisations on the journey to digital transformation are encountering new challenges with managing risk. Not only are complex digital transformation initiatives making it difficult for organisations to fully grasp their entire risk profile but digital transformation is also resulting in new types of risk for the company. Organisations with strong risk aversion are in danger of preventing or stifling innovation and change. How can organisations manage risk and create a strategy that empowers digital transformation? What have organisations learned on the road to digital transformation that can help others early on in the journey?
Digital transformation is real, and it’s happening – our data in the retail industry lends more insight to the state of the transition. It is an inescapable truth that every business is becoming a digital business empowered by new software initiatives such as AI, Robotics and IoT. The adoption of these disruptive trends will force a divide between business leaders and laggards. With the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday, how prepared are you to meet rising customer expectations. As the pace of innovation accelerates, retailers need to act now. Our Global retail research illustrates a significant gap between digital leaders and laggards and even a modest investment can improve operational efficiencies and agility.
The retail industry is bursting with digital innovation driving change. This session will review:
•How differentiation demands digital maturity
•Transformational technologies essential to create immersive, connected retail experiences across digital and physical worlds
•The role of cloud services and its impact on customer experience, agility, efficiency and risk
