When companies become digital ready, they gain a number of advantages that empower them to do things they never thought possible. Being digital ready means you can exponentially increase the volume, variety and velocity of data processing, and scale whenever and wherever you need to globally. Being digital ready means that you can be proactive—rather than reactive—to change, no matter what form it takes. It also means leveraging more cost-effective OPEX rather than CAPEX to take your business anywhere in the world it needs to be and contribute to a flourishing global digital economy.
Digital transformation is changing how we do business, consume services and interact with the world around us, forcing companies in every industry to redefine business models and customer engagement experiences. Disruptors such as Uber in transportation, Airbnb in hospitality and Amazon in eCommerce tend to get the most attention, but even traditional industries such as financial services, insurance and healthcare are embracing digital technologies to provide more personalized consumer experiences.
