JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE changing digital ecosystem is predicted to have far-reaching implications for small and medium sized businesses in the near future.
This is according to MTN ahead of its Business Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass to be held in Johannesburg at the end of the month.
The scheme will be held under the theme, The Digital Industrial Revolution.
It follows on from the inaugural event that took place in Johannesburg earlier this year 2017, followed by another two successful one-day conferences in Cape Town and Durban earlier this year.
At the upcoming conference, industry experts will share valuable insights on how entrepreneurs can harness the growing artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics ecosystem to stimulate the growth of their businesses.
This is in addition to a range of other topics.
Mandisa Ntloko, General Manager of Enterprise Marketing: MTN Business South Africa, noted the development of electricity and telecommunications had fuelled industrialisation and ushered in an era of connectivity.
“As an enabler of businesses, MTN Business believes small and medium sized enterprises should ready themselves for seismic changes that will be brought about by the Digital Industrial Revolution,” Ntloko said.
The digital revolution is driven by technologies such as AI, robotics, the Internet of Things, cybersecurity, augmented reality and big data analytics.
“It is more important than ever for entrepreneurs to embrace these technologies to remain relevant on the ever-evolving business landscape,” Ntloko said.
Attendees of the Masterclass will also have the opportunity to discover how MTN Business and its partners can help them to grow their businesses through the application of smart, tailored solutions.
Google, Samsung Huawei, HP, SiMoDiSa, Blue Robot, National Gazelles and CAT have all joined forces with MTN Business to discuss and practically demonstrate the solutions available to entrepreneurs.
For the first time, the Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass will feature winners of the prestigious MTN Business App of the Year Awards. The most recent winners in various categories were announced on October 12.
