II Seminar on Impacts of Digital Transformation

The event was held on November 28, from 08:30 to 13:00, at the Institute of International Relations of the University of São Paulo (IRI-USP).

Digital Transformation is a concept that goes beyond the conjunction of words. It is the use of technological resources to rethink the purpose, structure, and operation of a business. The result of the transformation may, or may not, have technology as one of its essential parts, but it is a new approach to business that affects both the individual and society.

Technology itself is not the main topic of this series of seminars organized by CEST.

While in the first edition of the event the goal was to rethink how digital transformation could affect both the individual and society, in the second edition of the event, the goal is to discuss which performance indicators are currently being used by companies to assess their successes after implementing processes aiming the digital transformation of their business.
