Growing your business in a digital world – what small business need to know…about “digital transformation”!
Everybody’s at it or should be, #digitaltransformation is springing up as the strategic topic of the year in conferences and consultancy Insights all over. Digital natives mostly take it for granted, but what’s it all about?
“Digital transformation is about reimagining a business in the digital world. Or, if “reimagining” is too grand a vision, a more modest interpretation is simply: trying to survive in a digital world.”
@StartupBallymun is holding a FREE digital business event on the 26th of October in the Civic Centre, located on Main Street, Ballymun, Dublin. “We are again delighted to support this initiative” says business adviser Billy Linehan of Celtar, “there are 6 excellent companies, 6 leaders who are more than willing to share their experience.”
The objective of the event is to demonstrate the benefits of using a variety of cloud services and applications, which when combined, offer a competitive business model and a platform for future growth.
A panel of 6 speakers will share their experiences of digital change with you, the story of their digital journey.
“Big data is nothing if you can’t use it. Our clients make
well-informed, performance-driven decisions
based on Olytico insights.”
