The journey to digital transformation has never been ‘business as usual’ – that’s the whole point. Rethink. Reimagine. Reinvent.

Today, nearly three months into a global shutdown, we’re experiencing a life very different from the one we left behind in 2019. While “digital transformation” has been a buzzword for years and a journey many have been preparing for, we – practically in an instant – have come to understand it in a truer, more real way.

In just days, companies needed to shift to remote work and build a strategy to selling online. Our Webex platform is at 3x the capacity from February and now, according to Gartner, this change will likely remain permanent for many, with nearly three in four CFOs planning to shift at least 5 percent of previously on-site employees to permanently remote positions post COVID-19.*

Many say, “it’s no longer business as usual.” I argue it never has been. To achieve actual transformation and remain relevant, we need to be continuously rethinking, reimagining and reinventing our company’s digital future. If IT strategy isn’t driving your business strategy, it’s likely you’ll get lost.

What an appropriate opportunity for a reimagined Cisco Live US – now global and 100 percent digital. Two days, with more than 40+ broadcasted sessions of engaging and inspiring content over four channels. Register now if you haven’t already.
