Last week, our Open Digital Standards July 2021 event brought together vendors and end-user organizations from across the globe to discuss how the cross-industry development of open standards is helping businesses become digital-first. It was fantastic to have over 1,040 attendees from more than 90 countries gather virtually to discuss this critical roadmap to digital transformation.
The transition to Digital First has become a necessity for the survival of private and public sector organizations in a post-pandemic world. It was therefore fantastic to see attendees gather virtually over the course of three days to discuss tangible solutions for navigating the challenges we face today. Sessions and workshops were hosted by a plethora of leading industry experts and centered on the development and implementation of open digital standards to address issues critical to the success of a Digital First enterprise.
In the ongoing transition to Digital-First, an increasing number of technology executives, managers, and practitioners are looking for new approaches that will help them to make sense of the evolving business landscape and deliver digital products and services.
As an organization that is known for solving business issues through global industry collaboration, The Open Group hosted its third virtual event October 26-29, 2020, which provided over 3,300 registrants with the opportunity to discover the critical digital standards that enable a smooth transition to a Digital-First enterprise.
Amidst ongoing global uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one thing is evident: Business and technology leaders are facing the radical, fundamental change of becoming a digital enterprise. Traditional approaches and industry frameworks for technology management are being challenged both by new technologies and new practices, requiring key decision makers to take a more Agile, collaborative, and end-to-end value stream view of work.
In the ongoing transition to Digital-First, an increasing number of technology executives, managers, and practitioners are looking for new approaches which will help them to make sense of the evolving business landscape and deliver digital products and services.
