Warmly welcome to our networking event on Digital Transformation Trends in Southeast Asia!
Most organizations had to come up with a digital transformation roadmap latest when Covid-19 started to change the way we work. Now the world is changing again. Some of us are going back to the office, others are wanting to continue working from home. Many of us need to start travelling again. Our business may grow, or economies might stagnate.
In our region, Singapore is leading the way in Digital Transformation, but many other Southeast Asian countries are not far behind. Countries that have a greater population than Singapore are perhaps in even greater need to transform. Cloud Comrade and its parent company STT Cloud talks to tens of different companies and their executives every single day. In this session, we want to share some of the common trends and requirements from these discussions and how we see 2022 and beyond shaping up for our customers: be it in managing risk, making sure to remain nimble in responding to ever-changing market conditions, staying secure in an increasingly volatile world, or just out-innovating competitors.
Book your seat now! Limited seats are available.
