Joining Forces to Advance Development
Pavilion H, Krasnodar Region Hall
In partnership with Accenture

Are you among of those who just watching the world rapidly changing around you, or do you want to be the leader who's changing it? Сompetition is not about the market share and short-term performance anymore, but about the speed of change and adaptation, the business model innovation, democratization of technology, and effective change management and future values. According to Accenture research, 77% of executives in the world state that their technology architecture is becoming very critical or critical to the future success of their organization. The dynamics of recent years and the 2020 pandemic, which has become a global stress test for management systems, has shown the importance of technology as a determining factor of the competitive strengths. It has become obvious that business and technology strategies are no longer separable, and that every business is a technology business. The choices a company makes today determine which opportunities and threats it will face tomorrow. The pace of change is so fast and the stakes so high that constant pilot projects, case-studies, and lengthy incremental improvement processes are no longer competitive factors. The business success in Russia depends on how the current Russian infrastructure responds to such high-scale and ambitious transformations. Security, cloud technologies, reliability of IT -systems and infrastructure elasticity are not a subject for discussion anymore, but the crucial topics for successful business development and growth. Technology outlays are no longer compulsory spending, as it might seem to some, but promising investments. This is a unique opportunity to harness the power of technological change to rethink and rebuild the future of business and to transform the skills of employees and the “habits” of partners. Today, the winner is whoever can quickly formulate the vision for the future and initiate and lead the process of change. Are you ready to be a leader of change?
