DAN tech trends talk slated for June 15
Get the latest TechTrends from the experts @ #DANTT2016
As the world becomes more digital (and we at Dentsu Aegis Network, become a 100% digital business by 2020), data management and innovation will be the most important areas to develop.
Data capability has to be much more than a new service line or siloed specialisation; advanced data capability will underpin and reinforce everything we do. This is not just a trend as it has become embedded within every factor within the Marketing Communications sector globally.
We are influenced by and depend on devices, gadgets and sensors and often forget how important they are. Technological advances have penetrated almost every part of our lives and even more so the environment in which we operate in.
Technology has and will become more interlinked with data collection, consumer communication and campaigns. Businesses need to move at a high powered momentum and transform the way in which they operate, due to the pace of technological advancements, this has added immense pressure on every business to re-invent itself and constantly diversify its services.
Dentsu Aegis Network SSA, will be hosting an exclusive Tech Trends Talk in Accra, Ghana on 15 June 2016, to discuss the game changers in technology such as Machine and Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain Technology, Sensor Technologies, Internet of Everything, Robotics, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.
