DIGITALIST: Become a better purchaser of Digital services
Almost all companies own some kind of Digital service today. It can be as simple as a website or app, or a big complex system. No matter what, most people experience a lot of challenges with these services, it is often expensive and difficult to run these projects.

Rarely do you get the results you want and often it has become more expensive than you thought. What goes wrong and can we act differently to achieve other results?

Of course, we know that and the fact is that how we order and relate to our services is the single most important factor for success. You can't afford to miss this!

Tomas is a digital strategist and business developer at Digitalist. Tomas has 24 years of experience working with Digital services in roles such as developer, analyst, strategist and business developer. For almost 5 years, Tomas has lectured on becoming a better client and this lecture is usually appreciated. This spring, for example, Stockholm City changed one of its procurement processes based on Tomas materials and lecture.

LEVELS: Digital Transformation – from buzzword to action and reflection
We would like to invite you to participate in an interactive presentation and discussion on one of the most important changes that is currently taking place at high speed and around the clock. When you are in the midst of strong change it could sometimes be hard to tell details in our everyday life from meta-trends and overall shifts in technology and behavior.

So, join us to hear how we think around these issues, how we turn them into strategy, tactics and collaborative opportunities. We would also like to put things in perspective and sometimes when you look at our history, there are lots of things that have been thought and said in changing times and around new technology that is laughable in hindsight. So, most welcome to Levels for an inspiring session on “the meaning of digital transformation” together with Per Spångberg and Linus Granborg.

DIGITALIST: Becoming a cloud-based organization - challenges and opportunities
Digital transformation is high on the agenda and affects companies in all industries. Many companies and organizations have already developed strategies to increase digital maturity. Many have also invested in enabling technologies, such as cloud services and digital platforms, but feel uncertain about how to maximize utility and drive transformation forward. Maybe you belong to them? You're not alone!

The uncertainty about how to implement strategies is great. You see the possibilities, but when the results fail, despite extensive investments and investments, frustration arises. The need for support to be transformed into a digitally mature organization is great.

At this seminar, Digitalist digital strategist Andreas Markewärn will inspire you how you as an organization can develop and strengthen your competitiveness with the help of digitalisation. He uses concrete examples to show the opportunities and divide the digital journey into clear steps, so that everyone who participates gets an insight into how to do and what it takes to succeed.
