Oceania Keynote

Key lessons from the past 18 months - how technology acts both during times of change and as an agent of change itself

Change is one of the only constants in the business world. But you don’t have to be bound by it. If you’ve got the right tools at hand, you can even move ahead of it — and make your company one of the change-makers.

At Fujitsu's ActivateNow 2021, we look at how technology acts both during times of change and as an agent of change itself.

This special Fireside Chat between Graeme Beardsell (CEO, Fujitsu Oceania) and John Hunt (CIO, Woolworths Group) outlines some of the key lessons from the past 18 months. How has technology shaped the business landscape? And more importantly, how can your company embrace it as a tool of change?

Graeme Beardsell’s opening address will outline the significant changes Fujitsu has made to embrace the rapidly evolving ANZ business and government landscape and he will share how Fujitsu has been a change-agent in our customers’ digital transformation journeys.

So register today for Fujitsu’s ActivateNow 2021. You’ll discover new ways to harness change and use it to elevate your organisation in the process.

Highlight Session 2

Project Sagasu: Harnessing AI For Better Healthcare

As the power of AI continues to grow, there’s an increased interest in the ways it can transform medical care. How would the future of healthcare in Australia — and around the world — be transformed? Can it increase healthcare outcomes or speed to detection?

These are the questions that Fujitsu set out to answer with Project Sagasu. Designed to use AI software to assist radiologists in detecting and monitoring brain aneurysms, specialists will have more accurate information and diagnoses at hand — helping them save time and lives in the process.

Join us for a crucial session on how this new technology can shape the future of medicine.
