Digital Ecosystem – Accelerating growth through deep partnerships

Digital Transformation is a journey that companies are embarking at varying speed and scale. Companies can choose to walk the journey alone or in partnerships – together with customers, suppliers, private and public technology providers, and even fellow businesses, to co-create new capabilities and growth. Learning how to collaborate in a deep and fruitful manner is often difficult due to established practises, entrenched mind-sets, differing cultures and also competition for business. However, building such collaborations can be vital to companies’ sustainability. The role of public sector is also key in helping a small nation like Singapore maintain our competitiveness.

MPTC Annual Conference 2019 aims to generate awareness, understanding and also to showcase the benefits of building digital ecosystems through deep public-private partnerships. The conference will provide anecdotal cases of companies that have embarked on such partnership journeys and also share the strategy moving forward towards developing a strong and vibrant digital ecosystem in Singapore. These will be showcased through sharing by companies in talks
and exhibitions.

Who should attend

Digtial Transformation doesn’t just happen. Many SMEs quickly realised they could not undertake true digital transformation on their own. Behind it are technology partners that worked across industry sectors for industrial outcomes. SIMTech MPTC and its partner ecosystem work relentlessly to configure intelligence into “industrial IOT 4.0”-Ready. This MPTC Conference 2019 is for Today’s businesses that dare to think differently and look towards having their businesses IIOT-ready.
