Digital sales will soon account for the majority of sales in any enterprise. Becoming digital is now a requirement and the transformation needs to be done right through a well-planned and phased approach that allows you to be agile, flexible and fast. Open source software provides unique advantages in this journey. The nature of open source allows you to be fearless, try out novel ideas, make mistakes and learn along the way. You can easily drop anything that doesn’t work and strive forward without losing any money on investing in it more. Once you succeed it also provides you with economies of scale.

In this webinar Samisa will discuss the role of open source in your digital journey and how you can leverage its benefits to ensure that your journey leads you in the right direction.
