Are we destined for a futuristic utopia? Or are we heading towards life in a surveillance state? As the world’s digital landscape expands tremendously, the increased digitalisation is now turning us into a fully networked society. Almost everything has a digital twin that turns real-time data into powerful solutions. The digital world bleeds into the natural, physical world seamlessly, transforms the way we live, work, play and move. Explore this track to discover how pioneering technologies like IoT, 5G, AI and more are used to optimise operations, efficiently manage resources, and ultimately brings together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable.

Programme

Cities like Hong Kong are rapidly evolving, driven by governments, talents in the cities and more and more importantly, technology. Where does the future of Hong Kong as a global city look like in the future? How will technology and innovation reshape the way Hong Kong is structured? Joining us with the insightful dialogue about our paveway to revive Hong Kong with energy, technology and future-proof city map.

Embracing digital transformation can help businesses unlock new levels of efficiency, productivity and agility. But it also presents them with new challenges and complexities.  

In this discussion with Console Connect, Master Concept and Kyndryl, we dig deeper into the main considerations facing enterprises as they accelerate their journey to the cloud.

Organizations seeking to deploy IoT solutions face a complex, fragmented ecosystem of standards, devices and services. RUCKUS smartly simplifies the creation of IoT access networks through the reuse of LAN and WLAN infrastructure, to aggregate and backhaul IoT traffic over RUCKUS Wi-Fi 6/6E or coming WIFI7 infrastructure, thus accelerating deployments, reducing cost, increasing the benefits from IoT solutions, and enhancing the USER experience.

The pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation of enterprises to meet with the changing needs of the employees, the customers and the stakeholders. Enterprises are migrating workloads to hybrid clouds and multi-clouds which require enhanced connections to the cloud service providers to access their applications. Enterprises are moving applications from on-prem to SaaS to reduce cost, improve scalability and reliability in which application performance is based on the internet connection. Enterprises are moving into hybrid work environments which require a distributed approach to secure remote access from the employees. Enterprises are responding to growing cyber-security threats with increased reliance on internet to access applications and remote employees working anywhere. By adopting SD WAN and SASE, enterprises can modernize the networks to enable better application performance, enhance user experience and increase security. 

ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) has transformed the business landscape as the risks of climate change and social issues become more evident today. It is increasingly important for businesses to prepare and become more agile, efficient, resilient and sustainable,  adapting to changing needs in the workplace. Expectations for better space management, employee well-being and operational efficiency are some of today’s workplace challenges that affect both occupants and building management. In this session, discover how new technologies can create smart, resilient and sustainable workplaces by reducing facility management costs and increasing business productivity, compliance, and transparency – from strategy to implementation, shaping the future of work.

The word ‘Reindustrialisation’ has been popping up frequently in many channels. The government also sees it as the key to Hong Kong’s race for productivity and growth in the digital era.

Space travel and Metaverse travel with interactive and immersive VR destinations and attractions semms not too far from us and innovative technologies are shaping where, how & why we travel now and in future. In this panel travel and technology industry experts share their insights on how technology helps in the current travel arrangement and experience, what is the most game-changing technology for the future of travel (Metaverse, Ai, Robotics?), and what changes, impacts and benefits the game-changing technology could bring to the travel industry and travelers.

 

NTT & Pacific Highways have won the awards with their innovative travel technology solutions in Japan. Prof Tristan BRAUD has rich experience in Metaverse development.

The new normal forces enterprises to transform their way of operations. HKET, one of the city's pioneers to adopt Cloud solutions for their diversified media service platforms, will share with the wider audience how they joined hands with HKBN Enterprise Solutions (HKBNES) to plan for their digital transformation journey and achieve success together. Come and hear from these industry experts and find out which Cloud tech suits your business needs.

Work is far more than a place; office, home, the road or anywhere in between – if your employees aren’t working everywhere, they will soon. Many companies now offer flexible hybrid working policies that give their employees the freedom to work in or out of the office. However, not everyone has the same way of getting things done. Whether it’s the CEO, a manager, or an intern, your hybrid workforce needs audio and video devices that match not only where they work, but how they get work done. And sure, splitting time between multiple work locations could be a hassle — unless your workforce is powered by a killer set of tools and technologies. Poly pro-grade solutions help you look and sound confident from anywhere.

In building over 100+ products and ventures in IoT, robotics, consumer electronics and even aerospace, learn how you can create prototypes and products that are:
•    Faster than the usual 12 to 18 months most agencies propose,
•    Better than most experienced founders and teams (even with poor tech skills), and
•    Cheaper than what consulting and engineering firms or industrial partners would recommend.
