Most Canadian executives are putting their business at risk by failing to appreciate the effects of a digital economy. New IDC research has revealed that 67% of Canadian executives don’t believe the rise of digital technology is affecting their business right now. Further, only 17% of Canadian businesses have a clear digital strategy in place, despite 96% of executives knowing they will soon need one. Perhaps this is a calculated risk because they don’t yet feel a competitive threat; more likely, they are finding it difficult to define what digital means to them and establish a plan.

 

Whatever the reason, all businesses have to take seriously the threats and opportunities presented by digital technology. Getting started on the digital transformation path is best tackled by breaking the business into five parts – the operational core, the customers, the employees, suppliers and partners, and assets – and then determining where and how digital can create the most value.

 

This talk will discuss the impact of digital technology on Canadian businesses and give examples of where some businesses are already seeing success. He will also explain how businesses need to understand their digital starting points based on factors such as size, industry and strategic opportunities, before detailing how they can get started on building a practical digital roadmap.

Industries are advancing at light speed and it takes a near demi-god to keep up with it! Change isn’t always easy, and without very strategic plans, clear communication, a transparent roadmap and the cultural support of all employees from the shop floor to the top floor most change will be destined to fail.

 

Join renowned Chief Information Officer, Keith Sturgill as he shares his perspective on Digital Transformation. Keith will share how Eastman and others are embracing the advancements being put forth by technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and how they are seizing opportunities that are rapidly emerging from an industry that is rapidly digitizing.
From developing an optimized supply chain, to enabling real-time transparency from when raws are procured, through the production process to when they are purchased and then ultimately delivered to the customer. Hear how for the first time in the industry’s history – leaders and management from every function in the business can accurately, and in real-time pivot and make efficiency and profitability driven decisions to propel the company.

Imagine how much more productive your workforce could be if each employee had a virtual assistant to complete time-consuming tasks in enterprise systems. Now, imagine if employees could use natural language to message or speak to that assistant to get reports, configure alerts, enter data, or execute workflows.

 

Advances in natural language processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence have made that scenario a reality today. Through SMS, email, messaging and enterprise social platforms, your workforce can direct chatbots, commonly called “Bots”, to automate and execute SAP tasks their behalf. Analysts at IDC say this type of technology will become “ubiquitous over the next five years, and will fuel a massive reengineering of the workplace, making it more responsive, agile and able to facilitate data-driven decision making in all areas of businesses.”

 

Join Raj Koneru for an introduction to chatbots, their value in the enterprise and real case studies of how they’re giving enterprises a competitive advantage in the digital economy.
