The Essential CIO Toolkit - Ep1: Digital Transformation with Ajit Melarkode

Welcome to the Essential CIO Toolkit Podcast. This is a four part series, sponsored by Boomi, designed to help today’s CIO’s elevate technological investments onto the agenda at the highest corporate levels.

Over the past decade, digital-native players have grown from nothing into multibillion-dollar organisations, disrupting multiple industries along the way. Yet in that time, only a handful of established companies can claim that they have fully digitised their end-to-end operations.

In this first episode, Steve sits down with Ajit Melarkode, Boomi’s Vice President for the Asia Pacific region to explore why digital transformation is important for companies, why this is a whole of business priority and why the pace of digitisation needs to ramp up.


We hope you enjoy this series, look out for episode two coming soon where we speak with Nigel Nisbett and two of his customers to gain a real world perspective on creating integrated experiences.
