The digital transformation journey of organisations have taken the fast track after the Covid pandemic. As the world emerges from the clutches of the pandemic, the 20th edition of Infocom, the flagship B2B conference of ABP Group, will deliberate on how organisations need to adapt a mindset of accelerating their digital transformation.

While the economic scenario continues to bring new challenges with fresh waves of the Covid outbreak, businesses which have been only reactive to the pandemic could miss out on rebuilding for profitability, if they do not strategise to capitalise on the opportunities.
