Digital Transformation: How hard can it be?
Given that 70-80% of transformation efforts fail to deliver their promised benefits, the challenge is undoubtedly significant. Have you ever wondered what the 20-30% who get it right, do differently? How do they achieve such astonishing results?
Please join Kuldip Sandhu and Steve Sheppard as they explore many of the concepts and principles that need to be in place before you embark on your journey. See how many of these complement each other and how they help decision-makers to move forward with a greater level of confidence.
You need to be in it for the long haul – it’s a journey of discovery and continuous improvement but you need to know where you are starting from because if you don’t know where you are, a map
won’t help very much.
By the end of this presentation / chat, we will have demonstrated:
- The importance of purpose. Why are you doing this?
- The critical contribution of committed and supportive leadership
- The need to get everyone engaged and motivated
- A new innovative and ground breaking DT Simulation Training Platform that can kick-start and accelerate your initiative
- A case study of what has worked well with one of our clients
You will still have to make the hard yards but much of the pain can be relieved. We very much hope to see you at our presentation / chat.

Driving tangible benefits through adopting a full-lifecycle digital twin approach
Digital twins are rapidly becoming perceived as must haves in all industry sectors. The global digital twin market was valued at USD $3.1bn in 2020 and is expected to reach USD $48.2bn by 2026. Half of all large industrial companies are predicted to be using digital twins in some form by 2021, which is expected to result in a 10% increase in effectiveness.
Irrespective of how various analysts consider value, they all point to one thing – significant growth and importance of the digital twin. The industry and supply chain are all now looking to harness that potential.
With so much excitement around this concept, most are focusing on the aspirational “unicorn” of what a digital twin could achieve when fully implemented, with few referring to the milestones along the journey, on the incremental value-proving developments today.
This session will talk beyond the high-level platitudes and buzzwords and look at: how adopting a digital twin approach can tangibly enhance and enable asset management, the barriers to adoption, and how they are being categorised in industry through the digital twin maturity spectrum.

No more excuses: how the cloud keeps your data secure in an ever-changing workplace
They say hindsight’s a wonderful thing, but knowing what you know now - with your wins and failures of the last decade behind you - what would you do differently if you could press a wipe-clean button and restart how you keep your tech stack secure?
With big swathes of your teams and ecosystem now working flexibly, and with many set to stay that way, Brian Brackenborough, CISO at Channel 4, believes now is the time to act: “It's hard to think of any new business starting up these days without a cloud first strategy, which gives them the jump on existing companies that have legacy services. The 2020 pandemic demonstrated how Cloud eased the transition from office based working to Home based working, and for those that hadn't made the jump, it's time to bite the bullet, with focus on digital security.”
So, when it comes to rethinking how to keep your data, workflows and teams safe in the cloud, where do you start? With this new hybrid of home workers versus office based teams, anyone responsible for a company’s digital security faces a challenge.
In this panel session, Brian is joined by Debra Okwuzi, Security and Compliance expert at Dropbox, and Nick Smith, IT & Digital Operations Director at 1,000heads, to discuss the role of cloud solutions, and how you can use them to retain trust, security and compliance with your data, no matter what’s going on in the world.
