Mauritius will play host to a digital workshop on how the island economy is poised to respond to digital challenges and opportunities.
The digital workshop, which is being organized by the Board of Investment, will be held across the 23rd and 24th of June, 2014.
The aim of this workshop is to explore how digital technologies can support both “business as usual” and the creation of new business models, driving process efficiencies and expanding sales, opening new sales channels or creating new products and services.
Such learning forums play an important role in the progression of the island economy into a regional ICT hub.
The workshop is divided into three sessions.
The first session will cover digital governance. Discussions will center round the government’s role as a digital disruptor, driving innovation and transformation in public services. The target audience for the first session is government officials.
The second session will hinge on digital enterprises, themed ‘The perspective of the digital enterprise’. This session is targeted at public sector delegates.
The third session will be a round table with outsourcing companies. It will revolve around the question: Are digital technologies an opportunity for growth of the outsourcing business in Mauritius? The target audience for the third and final session is ICT operators.
The three main touch points encompassing the government, public sector representatives and finally, the solution providers would identify the core digital challenges and opportunities for Mauritius.
From case studies to best practices including collaborative sessions, the programme ensures that attendees remain engaged and have the opportunity to listen, learn and devise digital strategies for today that will continue to be relevant tomorrow.
