SP Jain School of Global Management’s IT Management Conclave Industry Survey 2018, led by Dr Karippur Nanda Kumar (Associate Professor and Area Head of IT), was covered by Human Resources, one of the most-read HR publications in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong, on 8th October 2018.
The article titled ‘Singapore’s ICT Sector Outlook for 2019’ highlights that 68% of the survey respondents from Singapore anticipate strong growth for the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry in 2019.
With over 100 respondents, the survey results were presented by Dr Kumar at the IT Management Conclave 2018 held at SP Jain’s Singapore campus on 5th October 2018. The event focused on ‘Leadership and Governance in the Digital Age: Building Successful Digital Enterprises’ and was attended by over 100 senior leaders and industry players.
Dr Kumar said, "Lack of digital vision and innovative thinking throughout the business are found to be key organisational barriers for digital transformation. Transforming legacy systems and adopting new platforms are key challenges in building a digital enterprise in Singapore. Business and IT Leaders from Singapore need to provide a clear digital vision and facilitate more aggressive investment in agile and disruptive technologies so as to build successful digital enterprises.”
