Panel Discussion: How Data Drives Digital Transformation?


Affected by the global epidemic, businesses and professionals from all walks of life are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities, and as a result, digital transformation and innovation have accelerated. Amid the rapid changes in the external environment, consumer behaviors have shifted, and their expectations have also risen. Therefore, the supply chain and ecological environment of various industries are facing huge pressure. The retail, Internet, finance, and transportation industries are the forerunners of digital transformation and innovation. For example, traditional retail is now leveraging online live broadcasts to improve sales growth; social networks are using VR and AR technology to develop the Metaverse; financial services are developing touchless payment solutions to improve customer experience, and logistics services are leveraging data-driven inventory and supply chain management to enhance the expansion and visualization of operational capabilities.
The Alibaba Cloud Summit will invite industry experts and industry leaders to share their insights and experience in the retail, Internet, finance, and transportation industries. At the same time, Alibaba Cloud will also announce our latest product launches and share our industry best practices. We will help enterprises to accelerate transformation and innovation in a new way in the new year. Join the Alibaba Cloud Summit, and meet face-to-face with industry disruptors and discuss future trends.
