ICT Expert Charges Companies’ on Tech Adoption

Ademola Aladekomo Founder, Chams Plc, an indigenous Information Communication Technology (ICT) firm, has charged directors on companies’ boards to embrace current trends in ICT to engender business sustainability.

Aladekomo gave the charge at the 2022 Fellows’ Luncheon of the Institute of Directors (IoD) themed: “Innovation, Sustainability and The Future Role of Directors In The Nigerian and Global Economy.” Aladekomo said this was necessary because in the next 20 years, Africa would dominate the world by virtue of its large youthful population, vast natural resources and other dynamics.

He noted that the value of an innovative, technologically driven company, was more than that of all financial institutions and other forms of businesses put together. The Charms boss listed five domains of digital transformation to include competition, customer, innovation, data and value, adding that Africa and Nigeria were virgin markets for the transformation.

He said, “Strategic direction, corporate governance and accountability are the three key functions of directors to engender sustainability.

“The volume and velocity of transactions these days are alarming, and one needs to be innovative to be at par with what is going on digitally. “It’s either you innovate or you die as there’s no middle ground to this as lack of innovation had led to the death, threat of relevance, and obsoleteness of many companies.”
