Digital – we can’t avoid it at the individual level, nor can most of the commercial organisations in today’s world. Powered by new technologies and big data, digital advances are redefining the markets, the professional service landscape as well as business models. Digital can be defined as a continuous form of disruption to business models, products, services, systems or experiences, enabled by data and technology across the enterprise. In this context, companies have developed sets of offerings that allow them to support business through every element of transformation. Companies world-wide are already seeing and feeling digital disruption and are trying to navigate its impact to their advantages. From high-growth start-ups to established Fortune 100 companies, everyone wants to seize the upside of disruption by seeking new ways to optimize the supply chain, design customer experiences and rethink their operating models. To remain competitive and relevant to competition and potential future needs, everyone needs to transform their way of thinking and operation in today’s digital world.
