2016 / Roundtable: Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation has turned into one of the economic buzz words. In the early days it was necessary to have a website, today a solid digital footprint is a success factor for any commercial business model and it’s becoming mission critical in the B2B world as well. What started as the “re-invention” of transactional business models like travel, retail & banking has now turned into disruption, in which telco’s don’t own infrastructure and IT giants design cars. The next phase of this continuous and constantly accelerating change is the digital empowerment of organisations. The Chief Digital Officer and digital strategy teams will be replaced by a broad and deep digital maturity of all organisational functions.

Let’s discuss and exchange hands-on experience with the challenges deriving from this rapid evolution of business environments and markets and how organisations address the challenges and build their own foundation for a solid and successful future in a very digital world.

Roundtables are a new format introduced by the Association in 2016. Each event is designed to focus on a specific communication “hot topic” and to spark deeper insights for participants. The Roundtables bring together a group of ten to fifteen alumni to share ideas in an open forum. This first Roundtable on Digital Transformation and will be led by Philipp Rosenthal.

Speaker

Philipp Rosenthal, Principant Consultant, Infocentric Research AG

"I believe in the power of digital. My passion lies with the future of information work. I help clients to evolve their intranet into a digital workplace for communication, collaboration & exchange." Over the past years Philipp has specialised in consulting companies that - due to their rather classic business model - don't have a high affinity to digital work support beyond ERP and CRM systems. Philipp blogs at www.desire-it.de and tweets with @_PRosenthal.
