Every good CEO should be able to keep up with new technologies and use them as efficiently as possible. Nevertheless, digital business transformation is a long haul and can sometimes become a stumbling block. Often, however, it is only a matter of starting with a change of mindset and opening yourself to progress. How do companies drive their customers crazy? How is digitalisation perceived by companies such as Pilulka.cz or Feedo? The Digital Transformation panel, as part of the Retail Summit organised by Blue Events, brought answers to these questions.
