Collectively Cognizant Tokyo

- Mastering Digital -

October 25th, 2017

Competing successfully now on a global scale requires companies to deliver always-improving experiences, products and services. Achieving this goal requires investing in new technologies and capabilities. At the same time, companies must be more efficient and reduce operating costs. Today’s best business strategies and digital technologies can help Japanese companies be more innovative while also reducing costs.
At Collectively Cognizant Tokyo, our guests will learn more about how to master digital in this way. We will hear about how companies in Japan are using global sourcing to gain scarce skills and use leading technology. We will learn more about the practical use of such technologies as algorithms and robotic process automation. Together, we will discover how to make our businesses even more competitive throughout Asia and the world. Please join us in Tokyo in October.
