January 27 // Zoom
Leaders of the IT community are being recognised now as heroes of the 2020 pandemic, having facilitated the seamless transfer of millions of workers from office to home in a matter of days. Beyond March, these digital leaders have helped expand digital channels of all kinds to meet the exponential increase in customer traffic, be this in retail, medical support, banking, entertainment, government and other critical aspects of our lifestyles.
Having rightfully earned such recognition, digital leaders must now engage with their peers to help businesses prepare for a post pandemic era where we move from ‘doing things differently’ to ‘doing different things’. It is a vital passage for survival against ever more powerful digital competitors. In this respect, CIOs and their teams are uniquely qualified to inform their boards about digital and business possibilities.
