The Internet of Things (IoT) is here and it’s growing rapidly. Cisco estimates the IoT will consist of 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020.
This age of digital transformation is upon us like a tidal wave and it’s forcing a need for change. Every country, city, industry and company of every size is being forced to adopt and deploy new digital technologies and business models in order to improve performance and leverage unprecedented opportunities.
The real imperative in a world where ‘everything’ is digitized is that businesses need to rethink their operation and technology strategies and disrupt their own business models faster than their competitors. Without digital transformation strategies in place, companies will lose their competitive advantage in an increasingly commoditized world. Cisco’s research forecasts that competitors disrupting the market with new digital approaches will displace 40% of today’s leading businesses in the next five years. There is no time to lose. Technology changes are happening fast and new digital platforms and devices are emerging quickly. Simply put, digitization is of the upmost importance for business survival.
