The Path to Digitization

The panel was made up of experts in the area of technology giants and financial companies. Panelists talked about how Covid has changed the workforce and how many corporations, especially banks have had to make the pivot to digital extremely fast in order to keep up with demand. 

The established institutions are the ones who will be able to take advantage of these changes and thrive. The most important takeaway from this time in our world might be to never be comfortable with where you are. This can lead to complacency. Hence the more open people are to changing and adapting to new circumstances, the better off we will be going into the future. A lot of companies have already started this transformation to digital, but Covid has essentially been able to speed this process up in a good way.
