The Transformative Power of Digital Innovation

May 9, 2016

In each of the past three years, Harvey Nash Australia has hosted a digital innovation event, bringing together some of Australia’s brightest minds to explore the impact of digital on our jobs, our businesses and our lives. This, our fourth year, was another standout event. With participation from more than 150 business, technology and digital leaders, our discussion was led by an outstanding panel of experts:

Some of the topics our panel explored included the challenges of finding people with the skills needed to drive digital innovation, new approaches to the workforce, uncovering the true value of data and boundaryless transformation.
It was a great evening with lots of energy and enthusiasm ensuring a lively discussion about the transformative power of digital innovation. What was abundantly clear is that Australia has a thriving digital community, focused on setting the pace for innovation, although the source of innovation is no longer exclusive to a few people in IT or R&D; it is now an enterprise priority for any organization that expects to lead in the future. We are all the beneficiaries of this trend, as digital has made innovation much more accessible to everybody.
