Prof. Dr. Adiwijaya as the Rector of Telkom University opened this event. In his speech, Prof. Dr. Adiwijaya said that Industry 4.0 has a Digital Customer Experience concept which is very important because the sustainability of an institution depends on the institutional customers themselves.
“In this case, customer experience is a mainstay because from there we can create opportunities for new value creation so that we can responsively directly meet the needs of consumers, which are currently changing very rapidly. Of course, with the digital aspect, artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analytics, technology can capture the customer experience so that we can meet the needs of the customer, “he said.
The keynote speaker at this Virtual Seminar was Dr. Edi Witjara, CMA. as Director of Enterprise and Business Service Telkom Indonesia. Edi explained that there is digital segmentation in a customer first and customer experience.
“The key is digital that is useful in our daily lives, that is what indicates the success of application and service platforms. Technologies that will be concerned and sustainable are those that can make a major contribution to everyday life for many people, “he said.
Edi added that customer experience must be interpreted broadly. Through the customer experience, we get digitally valid information from anyone who collaborates with us, in this case, a customer. Edi hopes that this Virtual Seminar can provide motivation, especially for participants in competing to express their ideas in the use of digital technology in everyday life.
