Title: Is Your Firm Ready For Digital Transformation?
Moderator: Donny C. Shimamoto, CPA.CITP, CGMA, Managing Director, IntrapriseTechKnowlogies, LLC
Description: With the “great resignation” looming and people seeking full remote or hybrid work arrangements, has your firm fully leveraged digital technologies like automation (to reduce the volume of hours required to complete work), client portals/collaboration apps (to streamline communication and exchange of information and files), e-marketing (to automate the sharing of information to clients and find new clients), and employee engagement (to expand the firm’s culture into the digital sphere and have a better awareness of employee that may be at risk)?
Digital transformation can take a “phoenix” or “evolutionary” approach—the path you take depends on your risk appetite, budget, and business strategy. Attend this non-technical session to figure out which digital technologies you should be looking at and which transformation strategy may be the right one for you.
- Determine the elements of a sustainable value chain and how they help align mission, operations, and impact
- Identify the elements of an "enterprise architecture" model and its use in digital transformation
- Describe information needs and their relevance to digital transformation
