Talking Transformation

Digital transformation is the way ahead for businesses, and Aman Garg, Barclays' Vice President, Business Transformation Lead APAC lists a trio of important reasons as to why:

?The three main benefits are: Improved decision making, better risk taking abilities and being able to better serve employees.?

Aman will be exploring the concept of Digital Transformation at this year's Cloud Expo Asia Hong Kong event ? and more specifically, how the Cloud can drive Digital Transformation.

?In this, I will talk about the future of Digital Transformation and why it is important for the industry especially the enterprises. Cloud can be a key enabler for digital transformation and this session will detail about how Cloud can be used to drive digital transformation in an organisation.?

Based in Singapore, Aman has over 15 years' experience in the IT industry with five years in Barclays Singapore. He has worked with major financial and consulting institutions such as Bank of America, Credit Suisse, Danske Bank, Accenture, Lloyds TSB Registrars, and eBookers in various roles and capacities.

Aman is currently responsible for leading business transformation across the APAC region. He has worked with a number of teams and projects over the region and has used training and coaching in their Agile adoption journey: ?I am working as a Business Transformation Lead in Barclays, helping them transform the way projects are delivered in Agile way with lesser overhead.?

In addition to this, Aman is responsible for creating scorecards to track the progress over the APAC region. He is also part of the global business transformation team to drive the agenda across the organisation.

Discussing his forthcoming session at Cloud Expo Asia Hong Kong, Aman says that his session will cover two main areas: ?The first of these is why Digital Transformation has become a necessity for today?s organisations. The other is how the Cloud will play an integral role in shaping up a digitised organisation which will improve decision making, risk taking abilities and being able to serve employees better.?

Aman explains how the Cloud can drive digital transformation forward for businesses and organisations: ?The Cloud is a great enabler for organisations to take a big step towards digital transformation. As the data is growing exponentially and companies are becoming more and more global in nature, it?s imperative to look out for options which can deliver data and other related services at low cost without compromising the security, availability and scalability. The Cloud is the only platform which can provide all of these.?

Looking to the future, Aman says that with brand new trends in markets introduced on a regular basis, digital transformation is the way forward: ?Most companies don?t even have a comprehensive digital strategy which is required to keep up with the pace at which markets are changing. New trends are being introduced every other day. Are we capable enough to meet the challenge? The answer is a plain and simple ?No? and digital transformation is the key to the future.?

Aman Garg is speaking in the Cloud Management, Services & Applications Theatre on Wednesday 18th May at 15:50- 16:15
