2020 can easily win the most dramatic year in recent decades as it disrupted the way people live and work. In a year filled with uncertainties, what proved durable and constant was technology.
Suffice to say, technology rose grandly to the occasion, transforming the fundamentals of healthcare, agriculture, education, religion, business and we can go on and on.
With regards to the business sector, if anything, the COVID-19 pandemic underscored the need for organizations to set out on a holistic and strategic path to adapt and keep up with new technologies- AI, robotics, machine learning, IoT among others.
As the incorporation of digital technology in business deepens, entrepreneurs, now more than ever, are able to deliver value to their customers. As a result of this, there is an increasing demand for more innovation in Nigeria in order to maximize opportunities.
Accordingly, John Obaro, Founder of SystemSpecs, Africa’s leading fintech company views digital transformation as the process whereby new technologies are deployed to create new or improve existing business procedures, culture, and customers’ experiences to meet ever-evolving business and market needs.
During a virtual event organized by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Information Technology department last year, he revealed that innovation in digital transformation is behind the successful emergence of SystemSpecs, a 28-year old technology company, helping the firm expand from its humble beginning to its present status– an African technology giant renowned for its cutting-edge solutions.
Talking about the impact of technological innovation on SystemSpecs, Obaro said, “Our innovation is business-led as it remains at the core of our operations. This implies that we continually evolve by adopting and harnessing tailor-made technology solutions to solve problems.
We also ensure that we hire the best talent with top-notch competence and skills that can be inculcated into the business for growth and sustenance,” Obaro added.
Recognizing the crucial role of Nigeria’s youthful population, he urged that their large number is a strength that can be leveraged, coupled with the adoption of emerging technologies to reinforce digital transformation.
