Digital In Practice

April 29 - May 2, 2019  Dublin, Ireland


The transformation of an enterprise to become digital will impact every aspect of the business, from management processes through to products and services. Creation of a Digital Enterprise is achieved through the use of digital processes to integrate the information infrastructure, and enable more efficient and effective collaboration across the entire organization. The result, being the creation of more competitive products and services, with information being the business’s most lucrative asset.

In a true Digital Enterprise, technology will be at the heart of the business processes, increasing the information input at every transaction in order to secure increased competitive advantage. Information is used to scale digital transformation, reduce overheads, and improve responsiveness. However, key to the management and implementation of this digital revolution are the tools, architectural frameworks, content and process management solutions that support and facilitate the adoption of the Digital Enterprise. 

This event will focus not only on some of the emerging digital technologies, but also on the standards, architectures and business frameworks that support and enable the transition to and implementation of the modern Digital Enterprise.
