  • Reimagining Retail: Digital Transformation and the Customer Experience Oct 6 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Alex Hilton, Cloud Industry Forum and Guests
    As consumer behaviour changes - the desire to have a more personalized experience and expectations of quicker services and faster delivery among them - retail is experimenting with new ways to transform both the shopper experience and back-office operations. And to win in this highly competitive environment, retailers need to build agile and responsive businesses that grow loyalty and trust.

    In episode 12 of Digital Transformation in Action, we look at how technologies and tools such as the Internet of Things and intelligent analytics are digitizing the retail ecosystem. Topics of discussion will include:

    - How Digital Transformation can raise supply chain performance whilst decreasing cost
    - How data-driven optimization can improve marketing and drive customer experience to keep consumers coming back
    - Ensuring your people have the right digital skills to accelerate innovation and agility
  • Advancing Digital Transformation in Healthcare Sep 8 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Alex Hilton - CEO, Cloud Industry Forum | David McLeman - CEO, Ancoris and others
    To say Digital Transformation can be tricky for the healthcare industry is an understatement. Copious streams of data, numerous IT systems that require interoperability, hundreds of vendors and the need for better employee and patient experience has seen the healthcare sector fall short of the progress being made in banking, retail and manufacturing.

    But powered by the global health crisis of Covid-19, the importance of technology in the future of healthcare has never been more in the spotlight. Join us for episode 11 of Digital Transformation in Action, where we put DX and healthcare under the lens and discuss:

    - How to push forward Digital Transformation in healthcare with the right AI, RPA, data transformation and cyber security strategies
    - How emerging technologies are pushing a patient-first approach
    - Why the barriers to implementing a digital-first reality in healthcare are often not technological - but embracing a change of culture

How can you tap into all of the resources and perspectives needed to truly transform how your business operates?

    Join us for Episode 2 of Digital Transformation in Action, where our expert panel will discuss how you can build the right team to unlock success in your DT initiatives.

    As the idea of digital transformation becomes ubiquitous it’s easy for IT leaders to assume that we have moved past questions of “why” and “if” to “when” and “how”. But has the term become so broadly-used that no one knows what it means? Are business leaders bought into the idea of becoming increasingly digital, but unclear on what steps to take or what impact it can have?

    In this episode we will focus on how you can educate your organization and leadership in the opportunities and expectations of digital transformation projects, from getting initial buy-in to demonstrating real success.

Digital Transformation in Action
Digital transformation has come of age, but analysts agree that the world’s institutions and industries have realized only a small percentage of their digital potential. With digital transformation creating both opportunities and challenges, organizations of all sizes should be asking not only “how” to adopt new technologies and processes…but also “if”, “when” and “why”. In this series we will explore the complexities and outcomes of digitalization and what they mean for your business.
