Talent ReBolution and thinking Before the cloud

One of the biggest challenges we face is no longer choosing digital transformation, that is a stage overcome, today our biggest challenge as a company is to be able to travel more efficiently our path to innovation.

Pre-pandemic talks were focused on digital transformation, today it is a fact, the pandemic forced us to move to the digital world, today´s focus is on how to provide the best user experience at the digital level. To differentiate yourself you have to work on the UX, which forces us to innovate

For these, it is essential to choose partners who have enough talent to manage cloud services and maintain the infrastructure while we focus on improving the UX to be more competitive. And this is where we find the industry’s first big problem: the little real and in-depth knowledge that exists about the cloud and its tools. In this conference we will talk about how to build the processes to be able to better walk the path to innovation, how to develop and assemble the fundamental pillars and the management of the talent necessary to maintain it.
