About TechCon Day

The TechCon Virtual Conclave

“You can have data without information, but you cannot have information without data” – Daniel Keys Moran

Businesses and leaders have come to terms with this adage in the last few months and have changed their business strategies in ways that they likely wouldn’t have otherwise explored. Instead of seeing this as a cost of the uncertain market conditions, experts claim that companies should treat the new stream of opportunities as a chance to generate growth and to stand out as true winners in building a sustainable business. According to a McKinsey report that quotes a study from magazine Psychology Today, it takes an average of 66 days for a behaviour to become automatic. This could be good news for business leaders as the volatile conditions acted as a full-stop for businesses as usual and a launching pad for organizations to become virtual, digital-centric, and agile—and they had or have to do it all at light speed.  In fact, even before the global health crisis hit, 92% of company leaders surveyed by McKinsey thought that their business model would not remain viable at the rates of digitization at that time.

Digital strategy – A no-brainer

  • “87% of companies think digital will disrupt their industry, but only 44% are prepared for potential digital disruption.” – Deloitte
  • “89% of all companies have already adopted a digital-first business strategy or plan to do so.” – IDG
  • “70% of companies either have a digital transformation strategy in place or are working on one.” – Tech Pro Research
  • “21% of companies believe they’ve completed their digital transformation.”  – Forrester
  • “Less than 30% of the organizations’ technology vendors are currently active partners in their digital transformation initiatives although partnering with vendors is one of the best practices to avoid failure.”  – Futurum
  • “Intelligent systems will drive 70% of your customer engagements by 2022.” – Forrester

The uncertainty ushered in by 2020 will stay with us for multiple years to come. But with disruption comes enormous opportunity to not just restart what we used to do but forge new paths. Data and analytics leaders that thrive will design and execute on a strategy that accelerates change, builds resilience and optimizes business impact. — Rita L. Sallam, VP Analyst, Gartner Research & Advisory

As business continues to face a changing economic landscape and unprecedented markers of volatility and ambiguity, it is a no-brainer that data leaders of organisations need to create new strategies and roadmaps to ready the path for sustainable growth while cultivating a data-centric and digital culture inside the DNA of the organogram. Other key areas, where digital leaders such as chief data officer, chief digital officer, chief technology officer, chief information technology officer and chief information security officers, have to focus on include data literacy, digital trust, governance and data-driven critical thinking. The ET TechCon Day, via various keynote sessions, panel discussions and fireside chats, will offer new data and data-centric content and context for every attending member so as they can course-correct, learn and catapult their organisation in their road to recovery and success.
