#DellTechForumReal TransformationInnovative organizations know that digital transformation is no longer a nice-to-have, but a mission-critical component to drive change.
Dell Technologies Forum
Let’s dive right in. At our global #DellTechForum events, we share the results of the #DigitalTransformation Index. What is it exactly? https://www.crowdcha...

Janine Wegner
In general, we, at Dell Technologies, want to help our customers to navigate their digital future. We all know that’s not an easy task but the time is now to act for the future.
Janine Wegner
With the Digital Transformation Index, we are providing a benchmark for businesses around the globe measuring the state of digital transformation.
Dell Technologies Forum
This is a new study and it's interesting to see the differences from 2 years ago, when it was first done.
Janine Wegner
yes, exactly. we know that emerging technologies are transforming the dynamic between man and machine and the way businesses operate. Some companies are faring better than others in this new era.
Dell Technologies Forum
Janine, please tell us: How was this survey done and why did we do it?
Janine Wegner
Sure. We launched the first ever Dell Technologies Digital Transformation Index in 2016. Here nearly half (45%) of global business leaders were worried their businesses will become obsolete within just five years. Today, that threat still stands.
Janine Wegner
So two years later (2018), we asked business leaders again how they are doing on their digital journey, the barriers they face, and their plans to overcome those. We surveyed 4,600 business leaders across 42 countries.
Suhela Dighe
45%, that is a lot!! Interesting study!
Janine Wegner
indeed. We are very pleased that we had the opportunity to survey across 42 countries, and to partner with the Dell Technologies Forum teams to roll out the results locally.
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@JanineWegner every industry is facing digital disruption and business leaders are realizing it
Dell Technologies Forum
It's fascinating to see how the industry and technology has moved on.. A global study and a global event series.
Janine Wegner
@vGazza agreed. With the study, we're providing country-level insights into digital transformation. Often, you only have global or regional views.
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@JanineWegner 42 countries! We can say it's a global trend for sure!
Dinko Eror
@JanineWegner You are so right Janine. It is NOW time to act!
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@JanineWegner that's very important. After all "the future is here it's just unevenly distributed"
Dell Technologies Forum
Where can people find the results of the #digitaltrandformation Index for their country?
Dinko Eror
@JanineWegner My experience is, that everybody wants to speak with Dell Technologies.
Dell Technologies Forum
While we can’t share the overall results yet (you need to attend a #DellTechForum), are there some trends we are seeing already?
Dinko Eror
@vGazza It is great develpment on C-Level. Tehy really relized, they have to do something about digitalisation. I like what they do and plan in my Country.
Janine Wegner
Well, come to the next Dell Technologies Forum stop near you to learn about your country's results, or go to www.delltechnologies... to learn more.
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@JanineWegner it's a powerful message. Global trends. Local insight. And a call for action.
Janine Wegner
@delltechforum and beginning of the new year, we’ll then be sharing the global results for 2018. Stay tuned for those. You’ll be able to find them on the same website.
Suhela Dighe
What's the HOT trend right now? I see a lot of talk about #AI and #machinelearning? Are we seeing that as a business trend?
Janine Wegner
@vGazza time waits for no one. we know there's lots to do. It's about IT, workforce, security but also the external factors like policy regulations.
Martina Loughlin
I'm looking forward to attending the Chicago #DellTechForum tomorrow.
Dinko Eror
you are right Janine. Only if industry, poltic and all types of democratic association are playing together, we can make positve movement.
Janine Wegner
@DinkoEror and we love to speak to them. With our family of brands at Dell Technologies, we are able to serve our customers true end-to-end solutions and help them realize their digital future.
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@suzyspaatz #AI and #ML for sure. #EdgeComputing and #IoT transforming industries. Immersive experiences like #AR and #VR.
Dell Technologies Forum
@DinkoEror @KaterinaatDell, from your European point of view, how have businesses adopted a #digitaltransformation mindset over the past 2 years? What has changed?
Dell Technologies Forum
Where do we see the industry in 2 years from today in your region?
Dell Technologies Forum
Janine, where can you find your country’s results of the #DigitalTransformation Index, if you can’t attend an event? Do you have a link?
Janine Wegner
@vGazza agreed. If anyone is interested in industry forecast to 2030, we also did another research piece looking at emerging technologies' impact on live, work and business: https://www.delltech...
Janine Wegner
sure thing. You can view the individual country results at www.delltechnologies....

Dell Technologies Forum
First, a big welcome to our hosts today: @dinkoeror @janinewegner @katerinaatdell @hansdellemc and more. Say Hi!
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
good morning here in California! Excited to discuss the #DigitalTransformation Index!
Hans Timmerman
Good afternoon from Barcelona
Katerina Athanasopou
Goodafternoon! Looking forward to the chat today!
Dinko Eror
Looking Forward for great Chat!
Janine Wegner
Hello from Austin!
Dinko Eror
@vGazza Excellent. We are misiing you!
Hans Timmerman
@vGazza today at Gartner, tomorrow and Wednesday at VMworld (and partly Garter too :-)
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@hansdellemc it was a great idea to have both events together!
Dinko Eror
Digital Transformation became in my Country, Germany, reality. A lot of Things changed withing last two years.
Hans Timmerman
@vGazza well, not really, too much overlap and split venues at North and South Barcelona. But taxi's are happy :-)
Katerina Athanasopou
In Central Eastern Europe we still see disparities compared to Western Europe as well as within the region itself. We have high digitalized economies (with Estonia being the leader) and less mature ones
Hans Timmerman
Not only every business but also every product!
Hans Timmerman
and digital products are used by digital customers
Hans Timmerman
@janinewegner The great thing is that we have both the processor and the data knowledge, thus the production tools and the information assets, and that from end-to-end in clubding the Pivotal platform to build services.
Hans Timmerman
And IoT gives the Digital Twin a real time data experience while Augmented Reality links the Digital Twin again back to the real World.
Hans Timmerman
And at the Core we see the men/machine interface with insights form the edge (fast data) and insights from the deep learning Cloud (Big Data).
Dinko Eror
Exactly. However, humany MUST Keep the Leadership.
Hans Timmerman
in two years? Only mall steps because it is still very complex for companies to change. But they make serious steps . . . small but in the good direction.
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@DinkoEror IMHO human-machine collaboration is an opportunity to make businesses more human than mechanical
Hans Timmerman
Today @Gartner serious message that business leaders have to go forward and change the culture at their organisations to be able to go forward.
Hans Timmerman
with view on privacy, digital twin, digital product management and culture
Janine Wegner
@hansdellemc yes, we have all the capabilities!
Janine Wegner
@hansdellemc yes, the Gartner reports are great and on the spot.
