RIB CCS’s #FutureNow virtual conference emphasises how engineering and construction companies can embrace and fast-track their digital transformation journey.
RIB CCS, the leading supplier of specialised software solutions to the engineering and construction industry, is hosting its first ever #FutureNow virtual conference on 11 November 2020, addressing the challenges and benefits associated with the adaptation, digitisation and transformation of the built environment.
Digital transformation and technological possibilities are changing how the business world operates, however, according to Andrew Skudder, CEO of RIB CCS, the construction industry is one of the least digitised industries, citing that this needs to change, given the current technology-first business landscape.
“The construction industry is ready for disruption, and as a pioneer in digital software technology and solutions we wanted to emphasise our commitment to the industry by imparting the knowledge that can help drive and guide the digital transformation of the industry,” he explains.
Skudder says the conference aims to tackle each stage of the transformation journey and highlight the benefits of the shift - from defining digital transformation to accepting and implementing the right technology stack.
Further, the company believes participation will be higher than if the event were to be hosted physically. RIB CCS attributes this largely to the current pandemic, the belief that people feel more comfortable in attending virtual events, and that the company’s global audience simply won’t allow for multiple conferences of this nature across various markets.
Apart from a panel discussion featuring industry leaders and peers that have successfully navigated the digital transformation journey, keynote speaker and knowledge mercenary John Sanei will delve into changing the perception of accepting, managing and embracing change to craft a better and more successful tomorrow, both from a personal and business perspective.
“The event is free to attend and is targeted at anyone in the built environment industry wanting to learn about embracing and adopting digital technology to drive better proficiencies and overall business success and continuity,” concludes Skudder.
