“Digital transformation is now one of the most talked about subjects in the region. It can deliver new ways of working as companies look to improve operational efficiency, employee productivity and enhance relationships for stronger growth. Central to this growth is the surrounding ‘digital’ ecosystem which requires multiple skillsets and partners to collaborate in harmony to deliver the right industry solutions in order to drive business growth.”
