WHAT HAPPENED IN

IGNITE 2020 CYBER

The previous year saw the start of the epidemic, which brought most physical events to a grinding halt. The Ignite team faced this challenge and decided to bring our sought after event online, making it one of the most successful events that pushed through that year, and our biggest event yet. Despite the difficulties, the Ignite team still always believe in pushing the boundaries in order to bring value the innovation community.

“Remote Working is likely to become permanent for up to 50% of former office employees. Now, companies which have offices are going to have to transform their offices. Microsoft is forecasting a hybrid form of normal working in the Asia-Pacific region. Hybrid meaning, everybody will all spend some time at home and some time at the office and no one will be required to spend all time in the office. That means the office will no longer have fixed desks, your desk won't be yours anymore. Companies will need less office space, which means there will be cost savings and money can be spent on other things."

“Micro and Small Medium Enterprises are the backbone of ASEAN's Economies. MSMEs, which are so integral to local economies, are more at risk than ever. Solving their issue needs to embrace account local data and capability constraints. This is possible through a new Neo Bank model - focusing on not only financial products but supply chain digitalization. The results are impressive - better performance compared to traditional banks."

“You are the ones to bring change. The new normal has obviously changed the rules of how we live but there is still hope as technical advances in many areas will bring us more relevant services. It's up to everyone of you, here in the audience today, the startups, the speakers, to basically consider this times of desperation a chance to bring light to the world.”
KEI SHIMADA, LEADER, DIGITAL MAKER LAB OF IBM
