June #FutureMakers will explain the risks and rewards of digital transformation

Worldwide spending on digital transformation is estimated to reach $2 trillion USD by 2022, according to IDC. Why are companies around the globe dedicating so much time and capital to undergo massive change? It’s simple: digital transformation is risky, but not transforming is even riskier.

How do transforming organizations strike the balance between implementing new technologies to maximize opportunity without impacting critical products and processes? How can businesses best prepare for massive change? Answering these questions will be the focus of the June edition of RBC’s FutureMakers Talks series.

Taking place June 12th, FutureMakers Talks will showcase Canadian tech leaders speaking to the reality of digital transformation. The event will feature a presentation from Nora Jenkins Townson, founder of HR consultancy Bright + Early, Alexis Zamkow, Digital Strategy & Innovation Leader, IBM Services, and Jaime DeLanghe, Director, Search & Discovery Products, at Slack. The FutureMakers will be headlined by a fireside chat with Bruce Ross, RBC’s Group Head, Technology & Operations.

“We’re in an age of digital acceleration, in which data has become more important than ever before. Emerging technologies are transforming companies and making an impact across industries,” said Ross. “At RBC, we’re embracing this time of rapid change and opportunity on our journey to create a digitally-enabled relationship bank.”

Tickets range from $7-15, but BetaKit readers can get in FREE using the promo code “BetaKitPROMO”.
