Welcome to Innovation Tour, Asia 2018!
Valued Customers and Partners,
Innovation Tour in 2017 which was organized in 27 stops globally was a huge success. We are excited to bring you an even better Innovation Tour 2018 which is jam-packed with smarter and simpler ways for you to deliver digital transformation.
IDC predicts that by 2021, at least 60% of Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) GDP will be digitalized, with growth in every industry driven by digitally-enhanced offerings, operations and relationships. The reality today is that almost two-thirds (62%) of Asia/Pacific enterprises are digitally stuck. Furthermore, IDC forecasts that by this year, 70% of siloed digital transformation initiatives in APAC will fail. In order to maintain a successful position, organizations must be able to scale their operations and innovate at a pace faster than traditional businesses. 2018 marks the acceleration phase in the digital transformation economy, as Asia-Pacific enterprises seek to become digital native enterprises (DNE).
Join us as we discuss the recent IDC study in more detail and learn from Software AG’s customers, partners and experts on how you can effectively address the key challenges, accelerate your digital transformation, and make digital disruption your strongest competitive weapon .

I look forward to welcoming you at the event!
