Digital transformation is the integration of digital
technology into different areas, fundamentally changing the way we operate and
deliver value to stakeholders. It demands a radical and cultural switch over that
requires organizations to continually challenge, experiment, and get
comfortable with the future. This new digital landscape has gathered new tools and
technologies and range of perspectives on digital transformation not only in
the education system, but also in public services through various disruptions,
to improvise the sustainable lifestyle using data, information and knowledge.
These stimulus transformations accelerate productivity as well as growth and are instrumental in addressing pressing challenges and harness skills of privacy, security and social interactions. Digital preservation is a formal endeavour to ensure that digital information of continuing value remains accessible and usable. It combines with three commissions together and integrates such as Policies, Strategies and Actions to fortify access to reformatted and born digital content. Whereas Digital Privacy is a trending social concern, the privacy protection debates have sparked many controversies and bolster issues of social security.
New age Information and Knowledge Centres are struggling with conflicts over surveillance, secrecy and protection of intellectual freedom in the new paradigm shift which is privacy centric. For effective digital transformation implementation, it is important it should be inclusive, coherent and a holistic approach towards digital rights policy proficient with meteoric pace of changes. This international conference will focus on the discussion and deliberations on many of the issues emerging out in relevance to digital transformation as many sectors of Research and Knowledge industries are still at the early stages of such profound transformation.
Why Digital Transformation
technology has transformed the landscape of engagement, libraries and
information centers, in such a way that impacts every area of knowledge
operation. This means managing transition to a digitally driven model isn’t
just critical to accelerate speed of information services but it’s crucial to
knowledge survival. The top three reasons digital transformation is so
important in research and information industries are:
Acceleration of Change – The pace of digital change is rising exponentially, making it very difficult to maintain a position of an information center irrespective of the fields, and requiring an acceleration of new digital innovative solutions to academic and special library centers.
Digital Competition – Publication Companies are under ever increasing pressure to compete digitally, and long established business models are being disrupted by “born digital” start-ups. This competition needs to be cope by various library centers for update their clienteles.
Change in Expectations – Researchers and other patrons expect a good experience across all touch points, a library manager must ensure their interactions are seamless and exceptional.
Change in Access to Knowledge – Anytime, Anywhere for Anyone. The revolutionary change in the content, context and technology. Libraries need to work 24X7 outside the wall to facilitate fast and expedite services to its clienteles.
