In this exclusive launch event in Singapore, we will share the latest insights and discuss the findings around our recent EY digitalization survey on close to 370 SME founders and decision-makers in Southeast Asia. The study reveals that by FY2020, majority of the SMEs will be looking to invest in transformative digital technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics process automation, machine learning and blockchain.

Targeted at C-level executives and key decision-makers, this by-invitation-only event will provide a deep-dive into the four key imperatives around digital transformation strategy, talent, technology and cybersecurity that SMEs should note in their digital transformation journey.
