ABOUT

Covid-19 has disrupted life as we know it. The pandemic has fast-tracked the march of the Fourth Industrial Revolution at a time where survival hinges on accelerated digital transformation.

Technologies that were the domain of futurists are now being considered and implemented at a pace unimagined less than a year ago. To be successful and thrive in times of turmoil, we need technology solutions that guarantee safety, ensure flexibility, and build resilience into businesses and institutions.

The 2021 Business Day Focus 4.0 physical and live streamed conference shines a light on how participation in 4IR can rebuild South Africa’s businesses and economic backbone by preparing it for future uncertainty, while focusing on the human story in a digitally disrupted and technologically transformed age.
