On 4 June, Almaty hosted the regular meeting of British Chamber of Commerce in Kazakhstan with support from KPMG in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. The guests discussed digital trends, threats and uncertainty, also news from DIT, British Embassy.
Head of IT Advisory Konstantin Aushev presented the findings of recent KPMG International surveys: Global CEO Outlook 2018, CIO Harvey Nash Survey 2017 и Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report 2018. “Today, CEOs are paying increased attention to digital solutions. The high speed of implementing innovations and changing business strategies calls for flexible and economically feasible cloud solutions. For the companies which store confidential information in clouds, the issue of enhanced protection against unauthorised access is crucial,” commented Konstantin. “The level of ongoing changes has become unprecedented, while more and more of these changes happen in the areas where they’re not expected. Many CIOs manage to turn this uncertainty into new opportunities: make their companies more flexible, constantly increase the use of digital technology, solve emerging issues, and win,” he adds.
