The Future Is Pounding at the Door: The Impact of Digital Transformation on Strategy and Decision Making
This IDC Perspective kicks off a collection of documents on the best practices around disruption and digital transformation — how to prepare for it and turn moments of uncertainty and unknown risk into opportunity. Over three-quarters of Canadian business leaders believe that digital technologies will significantly disrupt their industries, propelling their companies toward major transformational initiatives.IDC believes that almost every industry and every player in their respective sectors are asking themselves the same questions. It is not a matter of if, but when and how we should respond? We have conducted research in digital technologies and published a series of documents over the past five years. Our studies covered areas such as the ROI of digital, the adoption and maturity curve for the marketplace, the Canadian start-up community, the digital CIO, and how organizations are introducing innovation to the way they operate and respond to changes in the marketplace."The need for transformation is rising as are the challenges of remaining relevant and creating new value to the marketplace," says Mark Schrutt, strategic advisor, Innovation and Public Sector research.
