He will explain why customers are what business is all about as well as why digital innovation is only helpful to businesses if it increases sales, decreases operating costs, or reduces the capital required – in each case, enabling the business to deliver more value to the customer and realise more profit. Technology, whether digital or not, exists to enable businesses to deliver more value to customers.
