There is so much excitement and optimism about a digitized ASEAN. Let us make it work for all levels of society and for all ASEAN member states.
The opportunity to learn, engage and network at Digitize ASEAN is worth every minute and dollar spent on it. Kudos to ASEAN-BAC and SBF for the amazing conference. I look forward to attending your ABIS in November.
I would like to congratulate SBF and ASEAN-BAC for successfully organizing the Digitize ASEAN 2018 program. I found the entire program extremely interesting – the speakers and panels had many insights that I found extremely useful to enhance my understanding of the opportunities and challenges ahead of us.
This was a great event with excellent topics covered by a fantastic line up of speakers and panelist. It is also wonderful to have our ASEAN friends participating throughout the day mingling together and discussing ideas and common issues that we all face in an increasingly digitalise environment that we live in.
I found the Digitise ASEAN 2018 Summit to be an excellent platform for policy-makers, payor organisations, technologists, strategists and healthcare professionals to engage one another with issues & ideas on how ASEAN can capitalise on and leverage digital technologies for healthcare. I took away many meaningful insights from the discussions.
I found the event highly informative. In-depth sharing from experts across the region has helped broaden my understanding of the potential for digitization across ASEAN.
I’m pleased with the opportunity to share DPDHL Group’s digitalization journey with many leaders and businesses in ASEAN and excited to see the developments especially in the e-commerce space within the region.
It was really great to be part of the Digitize ASEAN initiative which brought together Supply Chain professionals to discuss and share learnings of a market that’s going through significant growth and change and that will directly impact Supply Chain and Operations. This is also a time when each of us, as contributors in this journey, can make an impact on the 4th Industrial Revolution that we are experiencing now. These are indeed exciting times.
Awesome mix of topics and inspiring chit chats with thought leaders!
Please accept my sincere congratulations on such a successful event. The Digitize ASEAN conference was exceptional in its diversity and expertise of speakers. Every panel I attended was engaging and insightful. The conference brought together a very diverse group of people within ASEAN to openly discuss, debate, and influence decision makers from member states which may have differences in terms of technological advancement, and policies maturity. It is a time of constant change as industries continue to be disrupted by technologies. The conference therefore provided a timely and excellent platform to engage with practitioners, policy makers, service providers alike to exchange notes on how to stay ahead of the curve on these issues, and get the most out of technology, securely.
The Digitize ASEAN conference successfully reinforced how new digital technologies and data analytics are fundamentally reshaping and innovating our business models and ecosystems of today. I thank and congratulate the organizers for bringing together leading companies and future winners from the ASEAN region to engage on this important theme.
I found this 2018 ‘Digitize ASEAN’ edition to be a privileged space to discuss the latest developments, opportunities and challenges for business leaders in regard of the ongoing 4th industrial revolution. Impressive organization, very useful event: two thumbs up!
It is easy to develop a system and have the information digitized. However, the challenge is always getting disparate systems and stakeholders to share information across. Hence it is important to allow multiple systems and even different platforms to co-exist in an ecosystem. That’s why we need to integrate multiple flows, connecting different communities, to build a digitized ASEAN.
The Digitise ASEAN forum provided a unique opportunity to understand specific regional challenges and opportunities in digital health. The mix of experts and policy makers provided for many fruitful and inspiring conversations, and will lead to further collaborations in bringing a digital future to the ASEAN healthcare systems.
The event was great with engaged audience and interesting speakers. I’m looking forward to next year!
The event certainly achieved its goals in guiding leaders of tomorrow into an increasingly digitized business landscape. Congratulations on a successful event and we look forward to attending the next edition of Digitize ASEAN.
