Dimension Data and its global partner Cisco have partnered to bring the Digital Business Day Forum to Kampala on the 29th April, at the Golden Tulip Hotel. The Forum aims to showcase the latest solutions that enable businesses to fast track their digital transformation journey.

Group executives from Dimension Data and regional executives from the industry will converge to share inspiring stories on how their organizations are transforming to meet the changing demands of the industry and their clients.

With an exciting lineup of panelists and topics to be covered ranging from; Digital Infrastructure, Hybrid Cloud, Cybersecurity for the digital age, Digital Workspaces and Service delivery in digital business, the Forum will focus not on whether businesses should be transforming digitally, but rather how quickly this transformation can be achieved.

Gartner predicts that by 2021, over 80% of traditional companies will have lost 10% of their market share because of disruptive competition or the inability to disrupt themselves.

Francis Gituru, Business Development Manager- Enterprise Services at Dimension Data East Africa assures of an insightful event into the industry and trends during the Forum; “We’ve assembled these leaders, who are only in Kampala for a limited time, to appear exclusively on our Business Day panel”. “They will share advice, insights, lessons learned and how they’re using advances in technology to accelerate this transformation while balancing the need to transform with the demand to maintain a stable and profitable business.”

The Forum also promises a dedicated discovery session that is focused around the digital transformation agenda led by subject matter experts who share insights, lessons learned on how to use advances in technology to accelerate this transformation while balancing the need to maintain a stable and profitable business.
