ABOUT THE EVENT
What is digital transformation? Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how it operates and delivers value to customers. It's also a culture change that require organsisations to continually challenge the status quo, experiment, and get comfortable with failure. Minister Bill Shorten will address AmCham members around his policies to support businesses' shift to Digital and his plans for Digital identification for Australians to combat the wave of digital fraud. Digital transformation is imperative for all businesses', from small business to larger enterprises and all levels of government . That message comes through loud and clear from seemingly every keynote, panel discussion, article or study related to how businesses can remain competitive and relevant as the world becomes increasingly digital. What's not clear to many business leaders is what digital transformation means. Is it just a catchy way to say moving to the cloud? What are the specific steps we need to take? Do we need to design new jobs to help us create framework for digital transformation, or hire a consulting service? What parts of our business strategy needs to change? Is it really worth it?
