The impetus for companies to digitally transform has been in the ether for several years. But the outbreak of Covid-19 has turbo-boosted the need for integrated digital technology. As many of us around the world have had to rethink the way we live, work, buy food and socialize, the need and demand for technology has changed overnight. Digital transformation itself has been transformed.
Change is coming. Sooner than you think.
While some businesses have had to make cuts, one area where investment is rising is in digital transformation. A strong technology infrastructure is now, more than ever, an essential backbone of any business. The companies that can accelerate their digital transformation programs are the ones that will come out stronger on the other side. How do senior leaders bolster their digital offerings and position themselves to get through this pandemic? Is digital transformation finally becoming a board level discussion?
With the global economy in a tailspin, few industries will avoid being restructured or relegated to history. The businesses that will come through are those that are digitally resilient, innovative and relevant for this new modus operandi. Now we are seeing less well known brands become global household names. In this interview, we discuss this new landscape and the importance of rapid, reactive innovation.
Some of the greatest innovation we have seen has come from businesses which have pivoted, to address current needs. Drones are now delivering urgent supplies, auto manufacturers are producing ventilators, and healthcare businesses are monitoring patients’ symptoms remotely. There’s been a huge reset to get to the new normal. We focus on how companies have managed to reinvent themselves to continue business as normally as possible.
