“I am very excited about 4.0 fashion, because it is an era where we know what the final consumer thinks, we understand what the user needs, and we can make a very interesting match between user and consumer,” said Margarita Baena, lecturer of the Inexmoda-UPB Knowledge Pavilion.
Also, the Scientific Research Director of MIT’s Sloan Initiative on digital economy, George Westerman, was in the academic axis with the conference: “Your company does not need a digital strategy,” based on research, leadership, and innovation in digital technology. “Technology is moving very fast but organizations move very slowly; when you think about digital transformation within a company, the problem is not technology, it’s transformation,” Westerman said.
