These days it seems like we went to sleep in one world and we woke up in a completely different world! Since the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital transformation is making an appearance in numerous business strategies. While factors like technology, changing human behavior and changes in business models usually drive digital transformation, a catastrophic pandemic has rapidly accelerated this.
90% of CEOs believe that digital transformation (DX) will impact their industry, but less than 15% are executing on a digital strategy right now. While such slowness and reluctance to adopt would not have had such a huge impact before COVID-19, digital transformation is now no longer a choice, but rather a crucial driver of revenue, efficiency and growth.
