    About and objective of the conference


    The world is changing so quickly that real-time, personalized experiences with predictive insights are becoming the norm. Business transformation has always aimed to increase productivity and make the business run "better, faster, and economical." And for good reason: focused efforts may speed up decision-making, accountability, execution, and transparency. It's a tried-and-true recipe for delivering quick results to the bottom line. The issue is that it is no longer sufficient. Business management and sustainable strategies are upending industry after industry, putting pressure on incumbents to increase financial returns and reinvent who and what they are as organizations. Recognizing the significance of these dimensions, it becomes necessary to rethink its entire operating model and make fundamental changes to its processes, technology, and personnel. This conference is organized to give the participants a typical rostrum to share their perspectives and knowledge about globally emerging business practices in the rapidly evolving digital timeline.

    Why Inconsym:

    The conference provides a platform for researchers, practitioners, and academicians, to understand that business transformation is more than just creating a more efficient and sustainable system. It involves a change in mindset that can continue to evolve. To triumph over these challenges into opportunities, it is required that we lay stress on Now, Next, and Beyond the Business Transformation.
