GeoIgnite 2020 Video: Digital Transformation – Bilyana Anicic

Bilyana Anicic, the president from Aurora Consulting talks about Digital Transformation on July 23, 2020. Aurora Consulting helps clients bridge the divide between people, technology, data and the business and drive digital transformation. They help people find, see, use and understand data. They then help turn data into insights and insights into action.

In this session, Bilyana sheds light on how we see data in future. Visualizing data started with John Snow in 1854 where he plotted the outbreak of cholera in London. The technology and the understanding of the world have changed rapidly since then, which enables us to connect the dots for today’s disruption. John Hopkins University’s dashboard of the COVID-19 is a much more sophisticated version of John Snow’s work. The COVID-19 crisis is rapidly reshaping the “what” and “how” of digital transformation agendas. Through leveraging IoT, Big Data, blockchain, AI, location intelligence, etc. The information lets organizations improve their operations and decisions.

What does data mean to us in the future?

A new era of human experience is upon us. We reached a turning point in the digital transformation journey. This crisis highlighted the critical need for governments, businesses and individuals to rely on technology to power the future of work. Digital transformation that enables connecting data relating to people, places and things uncovers invaluable insight which improves decision making, facilitates a deeper understanding and enhances engagement.

It is exciting to see how data are interpreted at different times. And, of course, more importantly, how data will be collected, interpreted and used in the future.
