ETION announced as official Title sponsor of DTC 2018

Digital Transformation Congress 2018 is set to take place on July 26 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand.

Formerly known as Ansys Limited, Etion, a diversified digital technology solutions provider listed on the Alt-X, has signed on as the Title Sponsor for this year’s Digital Transformation Congress, to be held on the 26th of July at Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Congress will bring together industry experts to discuss emerging technology trends such as AI, IoT, Blockchain, GDPR, IT security, 5G, robotics, and how they impact business operations.

Etion is a digital provider of technology-based solutions to improve customer safety and productivity, connectivity, original design manufacturing, cybersecurity and digital defense needs.

With over 30 years of experience in bespoke technology development and design, Etion recently announced its annual financial results as well as a re-positioning and re-brand of the group.

The re-positioning is also based on the realisation that Etion has been working on Industry 4.0 solutions for a long-time, since before the term was popularised. In heavy industries such as rail and mining, Etion has been helping to digitise systems and build networks of what today is known as IoT (Internet-of-Things) sensors – such as hot bearing detectors for trains or collision prevention monitors for mines – for years
