A new report by Fujitsu, entitled Fit for Digital, has concluded that digital disruption is the new normal, and will fundamentally redefine the way organisations operate.
Across every industry, boundaries are being torn down as hyper-connected technology redefines the limits of what is possible.
‘From creating richer, more rewarding customer relationships to honing razor sharp processes and operations, digital technology is giving organisations the power to reimagine what they can do and what they can be’.
Based on the views of 1,180 C-Suite decision-makers around the world, the report arrived at four main conclusions:
Digital disruption is here to stay
Disruption is the new normal. Revenue streams, processes, customer relationships: all have been transformed by digital disruption. And while business leaders are enthusiastic about the opportunities that digital is creating, many have concerns for the future - a future in which they see continued upheaval.
Technology is at the heart of the battle
The boardroom agenda is now digital. Leveraging the full potential of new technology is the best way to thrive in a digitally disrupted world.
Evolution is key
Customers are demanding digital. Business leaders are fully aware of the consequences of failing to meet that demand. As the pace of change accelerates, so does the competition. The only way to thrive in this hyper-speed environment is to evolve.
Organisations need strategic support to succeed
Despite the challenges posed by digital disruption, business leaders are highly confident that their organisation can survive. Few, however, believe that they can do it alone. Digital disruption is fuelling a desire to work with expert technology partners, not just to provide guidance, but to collaboratively create digital strategies.
