Event Details

In this webinar, gain insight into how you can harness data for your work, as well as how your company can re-imagine the way it develops digital capabilities and create effective practices for digital transformation. In addition, learn about common missteps in companies’ digital transformation journeys and how to avoid them.

Be Pragmatic about Digital Transformation
The goal of a corporation in pushing for digital transformation is to reimagine the way it develops digital capabilities, in order to build resilience and agility. Digital transformation is not to mimic some good practices but to internalise, challenge, and create effective practices. This webinar will give an overview of the most commonly committed mistakes in the digital transformation journey and suggest ways that such mistakes can be avoided.

PC in Data Literacy for Non-Data Scientists
We live in a world that revolves around data. Data is regarded as the key resource that powers the world in the 21st century. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), many organisations still lack the data literacy skills to realise the business value of accumulating large amounts of data.

Poor data literacy is one of the main stumbling blocks and limits a company’s ability to reap value from using the data. To combat this, organisations will have to promote and develop their staff’s competencies in data. Employees who are data literate will also understand how to handle data appropriately, which will reduce the number of data breaches. This webinar is designed for all professionals to understand what is data literacy and the fundamental skills required to work with data for the organisation.
