Digital Terminal organizes 'DT Conclave' to enable SMBs digitally

New Delhi [India], Nov 11 (ANI): Digital Transformation has been the talk of the town for quite some time but majority of India's small businesses have yet to embrace the digital platforms.

This is hampering SMBs from competing at global scale. Keeping this thing in mind, Digital Terminal has organized DT Conclave 2016 in New Delhi on 10 November 2016 at Eros Hotel with an aim to enabling SMBs to understand the importance of digital technologies and help them to embrace them.

Indian SMBs are leveraging digital technologies across business processes, driving top line growth, maximizing output and deriving cost efficiencies; powering India into the future. Modern 'Digital SMB' is powered by solutions touching multiple business levers. However, it has to be accepted that a large amount of small businesses has yet to embark upon the digital bandwagon.

While large enterprises and big companies can afford to implement enterprise grade solutions such as ERP, CRM and BI, etc, SMBs do not have the resources and money to do the same.
