The global technology market is one of the fastest growing in the world; in fact we are sitting on the cusp of the next Industrial Revolution. Technology is replacing industrialization as the driving force of productivity and change in the world. Technology companies and companies steeped in technology may be the only companies that survive the fundamental shift that is coming (or has already come) to every business and every industry, in every part of the world.
Today’s companies must accept technology as the basis for competition. All companies that embrace technology as a means to grow and survive in fiercely competitive markets must consider the following implications to their business:
- The market is undergoing a digital transformation impacting all types of commerce and customer/supplier engagement coupled with a data explosion;
- Users have changed in the consumer world and business world;
- Data is becoming a competitive weapon for the enterprise. To make the shift companies must harness the power of analytics and machine learning; and
- Talent will be the differentiator in companies that can successfully make the transition. The expertise of an organization must advance faster than the rate of change that the organization desires. This means the talent must change.
