Welcome to the digital age, where technology is the central axis of our world and applications allow us to do things that were previously unimaginable. This new era has moved the pace of innovation forward at a blistering rate. Businesses are required to adopt new technology or risk getting left behind.
The Digital Age
What makes this moment in time especially unique is the speed with which change is occurring. Today, business agility is more important than ever. A startup can emerge tomorrow that will transform an industry and take down companies that have led a market for decades. This profound shift has the potential to transform every business model and every industry.
Leaders looking to thrive in this digital era must be flexible, prepared for change, and in a constant state of innovation. It requires a look to the future and an understanding of the existing, and coming impediments to growth.
A critical starting point is understanding the technology underpinnings of a business. Digital transformation is the quickest way for organizations to modernize operations. However, digitizing a business means more than just introducing new technologies—it fundamentally changes the way a firm thinks and does work. Most businesses have approached application architecture haphazardly and don’t have an explicit digital perspective or strategy that drives technology priorities. This often results in a tangled web of systems, which decreases productivity, increases the cost of work, and ultimately makes it very difficult for management to oversee the day-to-day work at a services firm.
Our most recent whitepaper will serve as a manifesto for change. We will review trends driving the growth and transformation of services industries, assess the limitations of the current tech- nology landscape, and put forward an emerging model that’s enabling today’s progressive professional and marketing services organizations to operate with greater agility, predictability, and precision.
