It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the 5th edition of Building The Future. On the 25th and 26th of January 2023, the main Portuguese digital transformation event will be back.
We reinforced the digital first strategy in order to inspire more and more people, allowing access to the event anywhere through the BTF platform and app.
We'll be challenging our audience for a reflection on the impact of the present times while discussing the future we are building every day. Chaos theory leads us to look beyond the apparent randomness of world events to design possible scenarios of opportunity. Chaos is a necessary condition to drive change and we must know how to thrive in a culture of transformation.
Facing a scenario of macro-economic and social uncertainty, of constant changes in customer demand and behavior, investing in innovation, digitization and sustainability can bring great benefits to companies in the sector: the role that technology can play as a determining vector for the generation of value, for greater agility and resilience of the sector, cost reduction, complexity and "time-to-market".

Dive deeper into why you are that person today and all the tools that can unlock the world of power apps, power automation and low code and even artificial intelligence and how to do it at enterprise scale.
