A successful digital transformation can lead to increased productivity and employee satisfaction, cost reductions and enhanced customer experience, but other long-term benefits might follow if they are embedded at the core of the strategy.

Campfire : Moving From AI Strategy to Execution and Value Creation
Artificial Intelligence is recognised as one of the main enablers of digital transformation in multiple industries as the technology can assist organisations in becoming more productive, competitive, and adaptive than ever before. However, without the right data quality, skills, clear objectives and system flexibility in place, AI projects often end up as costly time consumers with no ROI. In this strategy session interview, CDO Christine Loft Hunderup and Anja Løwer Frem, Head of AI Center of Excellence, will share insights and learnings from Velliv’s ongoing AI journey from strategy to value creation, their organizational setup and vision for the future of the pension industry, using machine learning and robotics.
Speakers: Christine Loft Hunderup - Velliv A/S, Anja Løwer Frem - Velliv A/S
Panel discussion : Take the Risk, Fail Fast, and Learn
Enabling a True Digital Culture In Your Organisation
No matter the industry, one of the biggest barriers to digital transformation is organisational culture. One of the ways to succeed is by encouraging risk taking and empowering failure as it can lead to learnings that in turn breeds innovation. In this interactive panel, leading digital transformation experts will discuss what we can learn from the start-up community on work- and decision-making processes, shed light on how they’ve implemented some of these practices in their own organisations and how they’ve benefited from working with start-ups. They will also discuss the challenges and pitfalls that big corporates often face in search of organisational agility.
