Conference Highlights

CommunicAsia2016 Summit

“An average of roughly four of today’s top 10 incumbents (in terms of market share) in each industry will be displaced by digital disruption in the next five years.”

Digital Vortex, How Digital Disruption is Redefining Industries, Global Center for Digital Business Transformation, June 2015

Challenging it may seem for the incumbents; the report states that only 25% of the executives are willing to be digitally disrupted, presenting two inferences: the market has yet to fully understand the implications of digital disruption and there are opportunities for the early disruption embracers.

Acknowledging the need for creating meaningful discussions on digital transformation and disruption, CommunicAsia2016 Summit features new, case study filled conference tracks and site visits / master classes over 4 days of intense learning and networking.

Key Trends Covered in 2016

Ever in continuous dialogue with the global ICT industry, CommunicAsia2016 Summit features the following new tracks / sessions in addressing the disruptive trends:
