 The Next Chapter of Digital Reinvention 

 Automation and innovation through cloud 

 08:00 - 11:00 

 Thursday 19 March 2020 
 New Victorian Loft, N1 7JQ 

The rapid growth in data combined with intense market competition is driving business leaders to rethink digital strategy along a number of fronts.

A new logic of efficiency is playing out. Automation is poised to transfer swathes of low value tasks to digital workers, whilst a renewed focus on modernising applications and optimising existing infrastructure will enable dramatic shifts in operational performance to materialise.

Leaps in performance and efficiency can unlock a new wave of digital reinvention, as productivity gains and creative capital freed from low value work combine to drive innovation in products, services and business models.

Join senior peers to explore how to realise a new wave of operational efficiency and lay the foundations for innovation and growth.
