How the hospitality industry in the Middle East is accelerating its digitization strategy

Digitization impacts the way we live, work, play and learn. With data now the most strategic asset of any business or country, Middle East governments and organizations are rethinking how they approach their value propositions, business models, and infrastructure to accelerate their transformation journey.

Industry experts from Cisco and Roda Hotels recently discussed how digitization will enable organizations in the hospitality industry to reap the full benefits of the Internet of Things. New digital realities are also being created across multiple verticals including governments and transport, with digitization driving innovation and empowering new efficiencies.

With technology experts at Cisco believing that the world is on the cusp of a new digitally-connected reality, almost every single object in our lives will soon be connected to, and reliant upon the internet. The Internet of Things, and that future, they say, is just around the corner, and it’s clear that the region is well placed take the lead in constructing this new digital reality
