At Digital Takeover conference Marko Rakar will participate in a panel discussion „State as your partner on the road to success in the digital age”. Digital transformation is a unique process where the private and public sectors meet. Companies alone cannot provide all the prerequisites needed to undergo the process of digital transformation in its entirety and exploit its full potential in the present digital era, and that is exactly where the state's responsibility comes into play with its policies, development strategies, and investments. The state is primarily ensuring and developing digital infrastructure, which can improve the business operations of any company. But, what are the next steps? What can we expect in terms of digitizing public administration? What do our top-level politicians have to say about their experience—in which segments is the state making the road to success more or less difficult and should companies consider the state as their partner on the road to success? What is the employers' opinion—which solutions and experiences are helping them and enabling a steady growth and development? Marko will together with other participants provide first-hand answers to these and many other questions. More about Marko Rakar
