✔ Digital Transformation for social Change, an initiative of afifa foundation

Building out a digital world – digitisation – will in due course affect, and likely transform, all levels of society. Digitisation can be defined as the mass adoption of connected digital services within society complemented by the transformation of sourcing, manufacturing and production, delivery, and the related processes.
It must be stressed that digitisation comes hand-in-hand with the expectation of, and growing demand for, immediacy: the need for "now". That means shorter response times, faster information sharing. Speed matters most. Meeting such expectation and demand has, and will continue to have, a deep impact far beyond the systems and firms striving to provide always on, real-time results.
