Opening the conference, our Managing Direct David Macfarlane shared the impact of technology changes in the industry and the need for businesses to embrace Digital Transformation to drive future growth. His advice – “become a digital service provider within your organisation, find the business returns and be a disruptor in your organisations industry.”

We were then joined by a panel of existing Gamma customers for a live Q+A on how they are already implementing digital strategies. Theres still a place for voice, reliable, scalable voice and data infrastructure is key for a successful business, and taking risks and trying something new ‘pivot’.

In the afternoon, customers chose from nine 30 minute stream sessions, which covered a variety of industry hot topics. Alex Ayers’ Born Digital session made the audience re-consider their current mission statement in relation to the pace of change. Its important to think about what today’s generation need to help your IT dept survive and thrive and improve your customers journey/experience.
