Synopsis:
PRESENTATIONS by Arthur Goldstuck 

Digital disruption in the South African Context

A new report has found that corporate South Africa is not in love with the 4th industrial revolution. World Wide Worx in conjunction with SYSPRO conducted research and found that many of the technologies that make up the so-called fourth industrial revolution have yet to be adopted with any enthusiasm by South African enterprises.
Although robotics is an exception. It focused on the planned update of emerging technology like artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, the internet of Things and blockchain.

Despite pockets of excellence, there is a massive gap among South African businesses between understanding the impact of using technology and actually moving to embrace that technology. Moreover, many have flagged poor connectivity as a barrier to moving ahead.
