With the explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT), ICT now has the power to do so much more - it empowers organizations to transform for success in the digital era. Seamless, intelligent, and ubiquitous interactivity is a key theme across all verticals.

Digital transformation is not new, but it is entering an era of unprecedented change for businesses. Did you know that 90 percent of the data in the world today has been created in the last 2 years?  This creates numerous challenges and opportunities for all types of organizations today. Will your organization lead or be left behind in this era of digital business transformation?

Digital business transformation gives organizations the potential to go beyond simply "touching" every function in their organization; it allows them to "integrate" those functions to reach internal and external stakeholders with equal ease and optimal effect while maximizing the ROI on each technology implementation.

Social, mobile, analytics, and cloud technologies ushered the first phase of this digital-driven consumer and business transformation. The next phase will be driven by the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, big data, and the connectivity and convergence of applications and services. These technologies will once again change the way we work, communicate, and engage with customers and partners.

Back-end and Front-end Integration - Across verticals, the need for integration or interconnectivity between various systems, databases, and devices, both in the back-end and the front-end, is recognized as requisite for delivering a seamless experience.

Analytics Engine - Analytics that process both, internal and external data, provide the intelligence to trigger alerts or automated adjustments to processes, offer more relevant products to customers, provide better treatments for patients, or enable safer automotive driving controls.

Mobile, Wireless, Smart Devices - BYOD, tablets, and other mobile devices, sensors, smart systems, and robotics, are part of the overall vision and are a source of excitement across verticals. They enable ubiquitous and real-time interactivity, both in the back-end (e.g., among hospital staff), and the front-end (e.g., shopper with the retailer).
