KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 30): Maxis Bhd said the successful implementation of digital transformation initiatives requires not just better understanding of the benefits of technology, but also collaboration through partnerships to break down complexities.

Paul McManus, chief enterprise business officer of Maxis, said there is an urgent need for organisations today to work together and accelerate their transformation efforts, with digital disruption already happening across industries.

"A big part of digital transformation is about understanding the immense benefits of technology, as well as partnerships to help simplify its complexity and successfully implement it to achieve the desired outcome and benefit.

"By hosting this summit, we hope to create more awareness on the potential and possibilities of what technology can do for businesses, as well as inspire participants with insights and experiences from an international line-up of business leaders and speakers," he added.
