“THE DIGITAL BUSINESS – How to start and on which solution should you invest?

We live the golden age of business digitalization. The overwhelming majority of private and public company executives are aware of the digital challenge. So today, the main challenge is not so much to convince them of the need to transform their company, than to help their teams to move to action, in a concrete and pragmatic way.

We have moved from the “why” to the “what” and “how”. It raises questions :

  • What are the key stages to succeed a digital transformation?
  • How to set up a robust and scalable digital architecture?
  • Which technologies should you first implement?
  • Should we give priority to free solutions or to publishers?
  • Which organizations should you set up, with which governance models?

The speaker, Xavier Rivoire of Clever Age, pragmatically answered these questions by sharing a set of good practices and illustrating his speech with experience feedbacks.
