Digital transformation demands that companies of all sizes and from every industry segment move from traditional tools and methods to those that enable innovation, drive performance and live and breathe the customer journey.

Today’s legacy systems face the challenge of supporting current business and customer engagement models while at the same time, enabling entirely new models. New technologies and norms of human behavior that had their origins in personal and consumer spaces have become mandatory to support in the business world. The pervasiveness of mobile devices and the use of social media dictate that these become essential enablers of digital transformation. The explosion of intelligent end points and the “big data” they generate bring cloud and deep analytics into the portfolio of essential digital transformation requirements while at the same time, raising additional concerns around privacy and security that cannot be ignored.

The digital transformation race promises to establish yet another characterization of winners and losers; those companies that embrace and accelerate their digital transformation journey and those that hesitate.
