7.00 CPE Hours (Others)
Live Webinar

Programme Objective

As we move into a digital economy, enterprises are gradually undergoing digital transformation to compete and to stay relevant. While the introduction of these new technologies can bring great benefits, it also introduces risks and uncertainties.            
                                   
Managers today are required to participate in enterprise transformation projects or panels to evaluate the usefulness of these technologies.             
                       
This course aims to introduce some of these common topics and provide the participants baseline knowledge to allow them to evaluate and in some cases, even implement these new technologies in their workplace.

In this course, participants will:
                                               
  1. Gain an appreciation into how these data analytics, automation, blockchain and cloud storage works                       
  2. Describe the general benefits and limitations of these technologies                               
  3. Discuss the critical success factors required to implement these technologies successful in the organisation                               


Identify the risks associated with these technologies and the potential mitigation controls

Programme Outline

This course focuses on building foundational knowledge so that each participant will gain an appreciation of the topic and the limitations of these new technological development.
