SIA has been significantly enhancing its digital capabilities through a multi-phased programme which has seen great progress so far. The programme encompasses company-wide training programmes and participation by staff in innovation projects across the SIA Group; building digital capabilities through extensive IT-related recruitment and a shift to agile delivery of IT projects; large-scale investment in IT infrastructure; and increased collaboration with global tech leaders, start-ups and research institutes.
