Technology is transforming the way we live and do business at a faster rate than ever before. We have now reached the point where every business in every industry must become a technology company, with customers expecting a fast and efficient digital experience for almost all the services they use. In recent research conducted by Salesforce, 70 per cent of customers said that seamless, connected processes were very important to winning their business and 56 per cent actively seek to buy from the most innovative companies.
It has therefore become essential for business leaders to stay up to date on emerging technologies such as AI and blockchain and the way these could be applied across every industry. Many once great businesses are now cautionary tales thanks to their failures to anticipate the effects of technological disruption and new, agile market players on their business models.
To compete, companies must have not only the right technology but the right talent, working practices and connections to implement the technology effectively and ethically. That’s why digital transformation has given way to a highly collaborative tech ecosystem across the globe.
London Tech Week 2019 will unite technology and talent in a world-class hub of innovation.
