Driving a Sustainable and Impactful Digital Transformation

Online Event

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital leaders across Hong Kong were challenged with the task of accelerating their digital transformation to rapidly adapt to the new normal.

In 2021, Equinix conducted a global study of IT decision-makers and found that within the Hong Kong market over two thirds of digital leaders confirmed that they revised their IT strategy in response to the pandemic, while 56% expressed that they aim to invest heavily in technology to become more agile post-COVID. They highlighted their priorities for their digital strategy to include digitising their IT infrastructure, fostering a collaborative, adoptive and agile culture, and improving their cybersecurity position.

But as we approach 3 years since the pandemic began, are these transformations sustainable and driving business performance? And if not, how can digital leaders assess and restructure their current strategy?

To explore this further, we have invited an expert lineup of digital leaders in Hong Kong to discuss what drives a sustainable digital transformation journey, the challenges they have faced and how to foster an agile, innovative culture that embraces change and new technologies.



Who should attend?

This event is open to all. Relevant to Digital Leaders, HR Professionals, L&D Managers, and more!

Join us to engage in the lively discussion and learn from new perspectives how you can drive your transformation forward. View full event details below.
