Digital transformation is essential for obtaining CPEC’s goals

Islamabad –  Digital transformation can help government to achieve goals set under China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and Gwadar port can be successful by passing right information to companies for market opportunities.

Saquib Ahmad, Managing Director, SAP Pakistan expressed these views here today during a press conference. He said CPEC is the real changer of Pakistan’s economy and digital transformation was essential for its success. He said that digital transformation was the top priority for Pakistan’s CIOs to transform industry verticals and daily lives, the global digital transformation enabler SAP announced on Monday at SAP NOW Pakistan, one of the country’s largest technology events.

Pakistan business leaders at SAP NOW Pakistan agreed with global research that shows 84 percent of organizations rate digital transformation as critical by 2022, according to the recent landmark SAP Digital Transformation Executive Study, conducted in partnership with Oxford Economics. “Digital Leaders” are finding 23 percent higher revenue, 85 percent market share, and 80 percent profitability. However, as the survey shows only 3 percent of organizations have undergone digital transformation.

“Digitization is the top priority for Pakistan’s CIOs to solve real-world challenges, from enhancing healthcare with digital patient records, to mitigating climate change by predicting floods,” said Saquib Ahmad, Managing Director, SAP Pakistan. “SAP NOW emphasizes how emerging technologies — such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, blockchain, and the Internet of Things — can make a major mark on Pakistan’s society.
