MEXICO CITY, Sept. 12, 2018 /CNW/ -- As disruptive technologies redesign all industries, digital transformation represents a defining challenge to many companies today. In this scenario, Mexico has the potential to become the regional leader in technology. With ubiquitous connectivity becoming the norm globally and the internet of things (IoT) a reality, the Mexican industrial IoT (IIoT) revenue is projected to reach $3.9 billion in 2022, up from $1.3 billion in 2017, with the bulk of IoT spending over the next six years expected to be in the automotive and industry verticals. However, according to our latest research, Mexico is also acknowledging other solutions. In 2018, the country represented 26.4% of the Latin American artificial intelligence market and 25.4% of the blockchain market.
Frost & Sullivan's Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) 2018: Mexico will navigate the transformative potential of digital tools and their massive scale of opportunity for the Mexican healthcare, electromobility, manufacturing and financial sectors. This third annual summit will be hosted on Nov. 15, 2018, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Mexico City.

"Digital transformation can no longer be interpreted by companies as a descriptive characteristic of the 21st-century changes; it should be understood as a framework which defines the contemporary being, the mindset and lenses through which the individual and society as a whole are redefining the way we inhabit this world. Organizations that will have the capacity to think and act disruptively through this digital mindset are the ones that will succeed," said Lorena Isla, Mexico Managing Director at Frost & Sullivan. "Today, digitalization is the space of opportunity for convergence between distinct sectors, such as healthcare, mobility, governance, and financial management. This event is a key occasion that connects, in Mexico, all these key agents and powers in digital innovation."
The global Frost & Sullivan team and pioneering industry leaders will showcase an assessment of the emerging economic and political landscape, trends driving the country's future, key initiatives positioning Mexico as a global innovation hub and approaches to operationalize diversity as a growth driver and critical differentiator.
